Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie, recently opened up about how he was featured on a song with the late Bob Marley.
Speaking on +44 Podcast with Sideman & Zeze Millz, a big UK podcast on Amazon Music, the rapper revealed how the collaboration with late reggae legend, Bob Marley happened.
Sarkodie revealed that the whole thing started when he received an email from the legend’s team requesting a verse from him.
The experience was overwhelming for Sarkodie, and according to him, he almost passed on the feature because he felt unworthy.
For Sarkodie, rapping next to a legend like Bob Marley was a different kind of experience, and he felt he was not the right person to be on the song.
Sarkodie said he was hard on himself and had to be very careful with every lyric because the thought of rapping next to a legend kept ringing in his head.
Ruthy, a showbiz critic, reacting to Sarkodie’s refix of Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up” song believes Sarkodie’s lyrics or verse on the song is substandard considering the capabilities of the Tema-based rapper.
According to Ruthy in the studios of Nhyira Fm, Sarkodie had a similar project with Samini on “Love Rocks” song and Sarkodie did an amazing job on the track as compared to Bob’ Marley and The Wailers’ “Stir it Up” refix!
