In an interview with Okay Nigeria TV, the duo said they were with Akon in Atlanta when Rick Ross visited the studio. While playing the original song, Rick Ross told them he loves the song's vibe. Akon then suggested to the duo that they collaborate with Rick Ross. The duo agreed and told their manager, Jude Engees Okoye. After speaking with Rick Ross' manager, the deal was finalized. When asked about the video shoot, the duo loosely said, "We shot Rick Ross' scenes in Miami and shot the rest of the video in South Africa in order to maintain our African identity".
