Sarkodie features a new version of Bob Marley’s ‘Stir It Up’

Sarkodie, the Ghanaian  music star’s new year, has been off to a striking new feature on the updated rendition of Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up.” 

The renowned rapper and Bob Marley, the father of reggae music, will work together internationally.

Despite the Jamaican superstar’s delay, his management released a posthumous version of his massive song “Stir It Up” with The Wailers.

Rapper Sarkodie from Ghana is a featured artist in this remix. His crew shared the information on Bob Marley’s social media platforms.

The new version of “Stir It Up” will be released on Friday, January 20, 2023.

Reggae icons Bob Marley and The Wailers bring in the new year with a remake of their iconic song “Stir It Up,” which features our rap legend Sarkodie.

After marrying his beloved wife Rita Marley in 1966, Jamaican music legend Bob Marley wrote the song “Stir It Up” for her in 1967. The track was first published in 1973.

Sarkodie, happy for the chance, expressed his gratitude to the Marley family for picking him up for the project.

“What a way to kick start this year!!!!

Definitely one of the highest moments of my career/my Life…Big shouts to the team at the island records @akosuas-@Jaykjs and the Marley family for getting me on this amazing project by the legend #bobmarley…Such a blessing to lay my vocals right next to the original vocals of the Gong.” – Sarkodie

Before the May 11, 1981, passing of the reggae legends, Bob and Rita were wed for 15 years.

Given Rita Marley’s affection for this West African nation, it is exceptionally intriguing to observe that a Ghanaian singer was selected to appear on Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Stir It Up.”

The Wailers’ “Catch A Fire” album, created by Bob Marley and Chris Blackwell, contains the song “Stir It Up.”

The official music video for “Stir It Up” displays Jamaica and Ghana’s dynamic friendship. These Ghana-shot videos, with Sarkodie serving as creative director, authentically explore identity, solidarity, and community, and fans can’t wait for more Caribbean and African collaborations.
