According to the “Jennifer Lomotey” singer, that collaboration made his music known worldwide.

Kurl Songx who was speaking in an interview with Zionfelix showed his appreciation to the “Sark nation” boss for helping to make him who he is now.

Kurl Songx came into the music industry after he emerged as the winner of the fifth edition of MTN Hitmaker reality show.

His very first single after MTN hitmaker was “Jennifer Lomotey” in which he featured Sarkodie.

Even though the song was an instant hit, it came with a lot of controversies surrounding a particular statement that Sarkodie made in the song about the “Krobo” tribe.

Kurl Songx’ newest single, “Lobi” is currently receiving massive radio play.
