I spent €30,000 (GH440K) on “Labadi” video- Sarkodie

According to the B.E.T. award-winning rapper, when he was sent the song, he instantly felt “beach and boat vibes” and where better to have that feel than in Mykonos, Greece.

“I wanted a certain vibe and I was not willing to compromise. The record was sent to me by a Nigerian producer. As soon as I heard it, I loved it. Normally I ask the producer what they were feeling when you wrote it, because I had already done the first verse which was talking about beach vibes, so I asked him and he was like I was just thinking about a boat ride and I was like that is exactly what I was thinking.

“So, we literally flew the whole production team, from London. None of the girls were from Mykonos, everyone had to fly in from somewhere. The villa we stayed in cost €6000 a night and we stay there for five days. We had to book a chef, and everyone had to get paid just for that shoot he added,” Sark disclosed in an interview on 3Music TV.

“Labadi”  is a happy song about having fun with loved ones and was inspired by the idea of a boat party and being surrounded by family and friends.

The video was filmed on the sunny, tranquil shores of Mykonos, Greece.
