PREMIERE: Watch Sarkodie, Idris Elba and Donae'o party and rep for Ghana in the music video for their new collaboration.
As the title implies, the song is all about letting loose, celebrating life and having a good time. The track opens with Sarkodie delivering a rapid-fire verse. His impressive flow shines through as he raps completely in Twi. Elba joins in with an energetic second verse that humorously references fufu, while Donae'o provides the song's catchy, anthemic chorus.
OkayAfrica spoke with Sarkodie to find out how the unique collaboration came to be. "Last year I had my annual show called Rapperholic and Idris was in town, and came to watch the show. That's how we connected," says the artist. "The next day he came over, listened to the project and we decided to work together. I sent him a couple of records and he loved this one. Donae'o has been a friend from time—we've always done records together, but they've been his records most times. I sent him this one, and he jumped on the hook and the magic just happened. It was super organic, it wasn't forced. It was just a great connection between the three of us."
