Former British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, has thrown cold water onto the celebrations of any BHIM nation fateful after Stephanie Benson threw some huge praise Stonebwoy’s way.
Benjamin, who retains a keen interest in Ghanaian affairs despite leaving his post, pooh pooed a claim by Benson that Stonebwoy was widely known in the United Kingdom.
“Stonebwoy is big in the UK, everybody knows about him there but the others are not so known there. I went for my radio tour just before I came with the song ‘One More’, and a couple of my songs ‘Goodbye and ‘Good Feeling’ and everybody was asking me; do you know Stonebwoy and said yes!” Benson had said.
Responding on twitter, Benjaming said he cannot corroborate those claims but that Stonebwoy is hardly known in the U.K.
“Household name in the UK”? I can’t think of a single friend or relative of mine in London who has ever mentioned or even heard of Stonebwoy, sorry” he posted on his favourite medium twitter.
No he isn’t.
