Ghanaian comedian SDK has found himself in the spotlight for his unexpected foray into the music industry. His incidental Amapiano hit song, “Cameraman,” which originated from a viral skirt video, has propelled him into the world of music.
In the viral skit, SDK humorously demonstrated the process of producing popular Amapiano sounds in South Africa, drawing a parallel with a cameraman. The skit quickly gained traction, with SDK topping the trends and fans eagerly requesting the release of the full song.
SDK’s singing talent showcased in the skit titled “Cameraman” caught the attention of music lovers everywhere, who encouraged him to create a complete song. In an interview on Hitz FM, SDK expressed his surprise at the overwhelming response, stating, “I’m overwhelmed; I was just doing a skit for people to enjoy and laugh. But when I did it, the pressure was coming in to release the song.”
The popular skit maker revealed that several musicians reached out to collaborate on the song, including renowned artist Shatta Wale. SDK explained that out of the many offers he received, he chose Shatta Wale as a collaborator due to the artist’s enthusiastic response to the song.
SDK shared, “Funny enough, when I did the song, he was the only artist who danced to the song, made a video, and shared it on social media, sent me a DM praising me and giving me words of encouragement. Even if it’s a remix, come home, and let’s do the song.”
