The timeless highlife piece titled ‘Bra,’ which was part of Sarkodie’s 2015 Mary Album, was the result of a suggestion made by none other than Sarkodie’s mother.

Pat Thomas during his appearance on Asaase FM shared the heartwarming anecdote, stating, “Sark invited me with his mom to dinner, and at that dinner, the decision to do something together came up.”

“His mother recommended it and I second-motioned to that and we did,” he shared

“Well myself and Sarkodie go way back. I know his mother. His mother used to come wherever I played, especially at Tip-Toe Night Club,” he pointed out

Little did he know then that she would play a significant role in shaping their musical journey together.
