Stonebwoy claimed in a recent interview that he is the only artist who sold the afro-dancehall genre to the world.
Not giving regard to other dance hall musicians from Africa, Stonebwoy said he singlehandedly made the Afro-dancehall genre appealing to the global market.
“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.
Afro-Dancehall has become one of the musical genre that has truly brought the attention of the world to the African continent.
Musicians like Buffalo Souljah from Zimbabwe, Orezi from Nigeria, Samini, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, and Mzvee from Ghana are a few of the acts that have contributed significantly to the globalization of afro-dancehall music but Stonebwoy is claiming sole glory.
When asked if he had plans of organizing a concert in Jamaica, the BET award-winner answered saying;
” God willing!…that would be amazing..It takes an arm and a leg to stage such a concert there, but everything is possible. Actually, I am performing in Jamaica next month so gradually I will get there”.
Stonebwoy made this all known on Citi FM while promoting his upcoming concert.
He will be staging his annual Bhim Concert on Friday, December 23, 2022.
