Rap artiste, Koo Ntakra who announced his inclusion in the preselection face for this year's Midem Artist Accelerator program will be facing his long time admirer and role model, Sarkodie in his bid to make the final cut for the artiste/band who will be selected for the Paris program.

The former hitmaker champ is among other sixty one (61) artiste/band who were announced for the preselection face last week, making the cut from over thousands of entries received across the globe by the organizers. The Akwapem rapper joins Ghanaian born US based rapper Blitz the Ambassador as the only Ghanaians battling it out among the lot for the final 12 slot.

Earlier this year, it was announced by organizers that, two time Ghana Music Artist of the year and former BET award winner, Sarkodie has been included in the jury which will go through applicants and make the final selection.

Koo Ntakra in many interviews ever since his rise to stardom has acknowledged the hardworks of Sarkodie, whom he sees to be one of the major players in the industry he looks up to in building his career as a rapper as well. This will be the very first time both rappers will encounter each other,even though they have shared same stage in the past, and the young one will be looking up to his ‘mentor' and fellow compatriot to give him the nod in the final selection face to represent Ghana in the June show down in Paris, France.

Midem Artist Accelerator is a four days packed with conferences, competition, networking events and concerts which enables key players within the international music ecosystem to successfully forge business connections, promote music at an international level, sign deals, and discover upcoming trends, talents and service to shape the future of music. This year's event will mark the 50 anniversary of Midem.

The 2016 Midem will take place in Cannes, France between 3-6 June. Final 12 artist/band will be released in early April according to organizers. We wish, one of Ghana's brightest music prospects, Koo Ntakra the very best of luck in the final selection process.
