Introducing the video, Egyptian Hip Hop offered the following message:
"This is the video for our song Tobago, named after the country of origin of Neville Lawrence AKA SUPERSTAR & STAR, who influenced this song and video more than anything or anyone. From the first incarnation, as a jam, to the final video, we had Neville in mind and, for this, we are thankful to him. He has a light and a vitality often lacking in this grey world. Neville is a superstar and we follow in his footsteps. He will always be pure. For our good friend Neville Lawrence aka Superstar and Star. God bless you. x"
