There have been a lot of controversies surrounding Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up,” featuring Ghanaian rapper Michael Owusu Addo better known as Sarkodie, as a lot of people think this is not a collaboration to brag about since Bob Marley died decades ago.
The hip-hop grandpapa, Reggie Rockstone, doesn’t see anything wrong with the feature; all he sees is that that is a huge feature for the culture. However, taking to Twitter, the Rockz Waakye boss commended Sarkodie in a post, writing:
TUPAC DEN BOB MARLEY WHO BIGGER THO? IF YOU GET THE RIGHTS TO DO A VERSION OF PACS TRACK TODAY U BE DON RIGHT? NOW IMAGINE GETTING THE RIGHTS AND HEAD NOD TO DO ONE WITH WOFA BOB? @sarkodie CONGRATS AND WHAT A POWER MOVE!! WHAT U GET PPLE WORLDWIDE GO WISH FOR! STIRR AM UP
Bono Ideas, a Ghanaian self-accredited blogger, didn’t seem satisfied with what Reggie Rockstone wrote, but he commented, saying:
He was featured by the management of Bob Marley. It’s not the same as getting featured by Bob Marley. It’s a refix btw.
And Reggie Rock finally replied, also saying:
Still very good and a great move! No easy to get and weda it was by bugs bunny or jollof Joe it is a significant move
