And there is still another relation between Shaggy and Austria, and again the connecting theme is football: For the UEFA Euro 2012, held by Poland and Ukraine, Shaggy did a song together with one of the most famous singers of Austria, Leo Aberer. The song is called "Football is my life" and was successful in several European countries, such as Spain, where the song held six weeks at number 1. The producer, Carinthian Christian Cesar, was awarded a gold disc.
Leo Aberer met Shaggy at the "Seefesttage 2009" in Carinthia. There, Aberer went over to Shaggy within the backstage area, and has laid him an acoustic reggae-rap. Shaggy was so excited that he ran to wrest the promise to do a song togehter with Aberer. Three years later, they did "Football is my life"! And another 2 years later, in 2014, Aberer and Shaggy coloborated again- for the Football World Cup in Brazil in 2014 with the song "Football minha vida".
