He stated that it was during the shooting of the video that he heard the second verse of the song, which was Sarkodie's rap with the lines, "Monfa mebone nkyeme, Nana toa so."

The line, when translated from Twi into English, means, "Forgive me my sins, Nana continue." That line came after Sarkodie had highlighted some achievements of the Akufo-Addo government in the second verse.

Kuami Eugene said the moment he heard that line, he was confused and turned to look at the manager, who was also present during the video shoot.

Watch the part of the interview from 14 minutes.
