Sarkodie recently took on the Dubai desert, making him the first African artist to host a full concert in the UAE desert, made possible by CEEK, an award-winning developer of premium social virtual and augmented reality experiences.

 

According to KJ Spio, Creative Director of CEEK, the virtual concert was inspired by the visuals of Sarkodie’s smash hit song, ‘Illuminati’.

 

He comments: “The inspiration for the virtual concert came from the Sarkodie music video ‘Illuminati’, which he shot in the desert a few years back. So that was the original inspiration for it and that’s why we even started the virtual concert with that song. It is also to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Rapperholic’, which was the second album from Sarkodie. I think that album has had a major impact on Sarkodie as far as his live performances are concerned.”

 

Sarkodie took to the desert under beaming sunlight, opening with ‘Illuminati’, leading into ‘Rollies and Cigars’, he continued his charged performances, right through to finishing with ‘Adonai’ which is taken off his Sarkology album.
 

 

“The highlights for me were definitely how quick the CEEK team came through. They flew people from America. Big shout out to ‘Big Cap’ he was super instrumental in getting us some people on the ground. Another highlight I will also say was just seeing a kind of a striped back performance from Sarkodie, just him and the music in the desert, without too many distractions. I think that was that was very special,” adds KJ Spio.
