I Sold Afro-Dancehall To The World – Stonebwoy Brags
One of the musical styles that are truly bringing attention to the African continent throughout the world is afro-dancehall. Buffalo Souljah from Zimbabwe, Orezi from Nigeria, Samini, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, and Mzvee from Ghana are just a few of the many musicians that have significantly aided in the globalization of afro-dancehall music.
However, in Stonebwoy’s opinion, the only one who successfully sold the afro-dancehall genre to the world was him.
Stonebwoy said the following in an exclusive interview with AJ Sarpong on Citi 97.3fm in Accra, which Ghana Weekend was listening to:
“I have performed with Bounty Killer, Richard Stevens, Alpha Blondy, etc., on the same stage as Shaggy. I put a lot of effort into promoting afro-dancehall. In all actuality, it was me who sold afro-dancehall to the world. “Oh, I am the one,” he said.
