Creative Director of CEEK, KJ Spio, who is also a Co-Manager for Sarkodie has explained that working with the rapper and Efya was more of a natural progression for him, because he is a fan of their music.
Explaining why the two artists were the first from Ghana to work with for CEEK, an award-winning developer of premium social virtual and augmented reality experiences, Kojo Spio said:
“For Sarkodie and Efya, I am a fan of both, and I always do stuff and work with people that I naturally enjoy. So, it was just a natural progression to have started with those two amazing individuals and that’s how it came about. Working with them has proven that they both have very innovative mindsets, they always want to do things differently, they want to continue to evolve, and it was just a natural progression.”
