Ghanaian musician and African rap icon Sarkodie has earned another landmark in his career as he’s being featured on Legendary Bob Marley and The Wailers ‘Special version’ of ‘Stir It Up’.
Originally released in 1973, Reggae legends, Bob Marley and The Wailers usher in the new year with a reimagining of his classic ‘Stir It Up’, which featured our very own, Sarkodie.
The announcement was made via Marley’s team on Twitter late Wednesday, January 18th, 2023.
“A special new version of “Stir It Up” is coming THIS FRIDAY featuring Ghanaian 🇬🇭 artist @Sarkodie! Pre-save the track today at link in bio”
“One of the highest moments in my career/Life… such a blessing to lay my vocals right next to the original vocals of the legend,” the landlord quoted in the tweet.
He went on to thank his team and the Marley family for the incredible opportunity to feature such a legendary figure in the world music industry.
“Big shouts to the team at Island Records and the Marley family for getting me on this amazing project by the legend; such a blessing to lay my vocals right next to the original vocals of the Gong,” he continued.
The official music video for ‘Stir It Up’ showcases the vibrant relationship between Jamaica and Ghana. With Sarkodie leading on creative direction, these Ghana-shot visuals authentically explore identity, unity, and community and we definitely can’t wait for more Caribbean and African collaborations.
