The STIR IT UP remix by the late Reggae icon Bob Marley which featured Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie seems to be a topic that would not be forgotten any time soon.
In an interview on 3Music TV’s Culture Daily, a member of the Morgan Heritage music group, Mojo Morgan, spoke about the collaboration that had caused controversy since its release on January 20, 2023.
In response to a question from host Olele Salvador about his thoughts on fusing Reggae with other musical genres in the case of the STIR IT UP remix, Mojo Morgan expressed his opinion that since music is embracing more diverse sounds, Africans and their descendants must eliminate any restrictions that have been placed on music.
“Looking at where we are now musically, there is no real individual sound anymore. Country music is now sounding like Hip hop. When you look at Florida Georgia Line it’s like that’s country music but take off that accent and all of a sudden you can hear Jay-Z rapping on that. So that’s where music is today. I don’t know why we as black people have to create these barriers amongst us but I don’t think it’s necessary because it’s music at the end of the day and music is free.”
After the release of the song, Music Executive at Island Records John Hill, disclosed that remixes of classic songs by the legendary Reggae musician Bob Marley are meant to maintain the legacy of the late musician, connect to the legend's origins and bring on board musicians who have felt a strong connection to Bob Marley's songs.
