The rapper explained how the collaboration with the late reggae legend, Bob Marley, came about during an interview on the popular UK podcast +44 Podcast with Sideman & Zeze Millz on Amazon Music.
Sarkodie claimed that the request for a verse came from the legend’s crew in an email, which is how the whole thing got started.
Sarkodie claimed that the experience was overpowering and that he nearly declined the feature because he felt undeserving.
Sarkodie felt he was not the appropriate fit for the song because it was a different experience for him to rap alongside a great like Bob Marley.
