‘You What Time Is It!’ – Sarkodie’s 2019 BET Hip-Hop Awards Acceptance Speech Ranked Best

Sarkodie gave one of the best speeches at the 2019 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

We all remember the day Sarkodie gave his astounding speech at the 2019 BET Hip-Hop awards. And how we suddenly felt he was the best at it.

Indeed, the “G.O.A.T” rapper from Ghana grabbed the Best International Flow award and immediately spewed out some amazing words. This is what he said;


Ghana’s Sarkodie kept it real with his to-the-point acceptance speech for the Best International Award. He started off by calling the audience beautiful people and then dedicating the award to his daughter that he loves very much. After that though, he thanked Akon for everything that he’s done for Africa as a whole. “Akon saw the dream,” he said. “I encourage each of you to take a trip to Africa and come have fun. If you come, choose Ghana. You know what time it is.”

His celebration speech came amongst the best four acceptance speaches on the night during the previous awards event.

Other featured speeches were from Lil Kim, Dababy and Megan Thee Stallion who also picked top prestigious Awards.

It was Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie’s first time at the 2019 BET Hip-Hop Awards since it was first Initiated in 2006.

However the Best International Flow category was only introduced during the year he won, making him the first African artist to do so.

This year’s edition of the BET Hip-Hop Awards is slated to take place soon without any single nomination for Ghana, meanwhile one of our talented acts Kwesi Arthur will represent us at the Cypher.

Congratulations to King Sark!
