connotes an explosion
of sound, lyrics and
talent.He own his own
lyrics website called
Lyricsjah.com. An
actor, poet, singer and
writer, Stonebwoy is a
talent that Ghana and
the world are yet to experience fully. Stonebwoy says “I grew up listening to
Ghanaian musicians specialising in Hip Life which is Hip Hop with local languages
infused, I wanted to do something more worldwide. I like the energy that Dancehall
and Reggae carry and knowing those who specialise in such genre are family anyway,
it was only natural. Dancehall chose me, I didn‟t choose it.”
