Work Experience: Getting to speak to Sarkodie.

As the day couldn’t get any better, Arnold and I went to our next meeting with Dennis. The founder of Akwaaba UK, yeah him, you’re now thinking ‘lucky girl right’ :-), Oh yeah I am. We were discussing the events coming up that Akwaaba UK will be doing in the UK and Ghana, and they have some good plans…

We were also discussing the problems Ghana have and how it’s effecting their business. But then suddenly I knew something, earlier I was tweeting Sarkodie with the Me FiRi Ghana Twitter account wishing him a Happy Birthday. Then Dennis (now my UNCLE Dennis) said that Sarkodie was coming back from Dubai and he was now in London, and I said “What? He’s spending his birthday in London?” Then Uncle Dennis said “It’s not his birthday” (I don’t blame him Ghanaian’s hardly remember their own birthday’s) and then he called him.

He called him and I waited for him to start talking. I just knew he was going to keep talking to him and ask him “Is it your Birthday today?” eventually he did and yeah he handed me the phone saying to him “You have a fan that wants to say Happy birthday“. I looked at Arnold and swallowed my heart.

Now listen I’ve seen so many Celebrities in my life, from Will Smith coming to my school, to Fuse ODG sitting next to me, not even realising. But this one I was proper scared. I don’t know why.

Dialogue:

Me: H..h..h..hello

Sarkodie: Heeeeey

Me: Happy Birthday

(I waited like 10 seconds for him to reply)

Sarkodie: Aww thank you… What’s your name ?

Me: Sorry ?

Sarkodie: What’s your name.. name ?

Me: Ohhh sorry Andrea

Sarkodie: aww okay Thank you Andrea God Bless

Me: (In my head: Naaaaah God bless you blud) Aww thank you same to you. Bye

This was too much for me to handle. So yeah try have a meeting with someone and they give you the phone to talk to a celebrity. Beat that.
