Ghanaian songs must dominate the airwaves – Stonebwoy

Ghana’s award winning Afro-dancehall singer, Livingstone Etse Satekla popularly known as Stonebwoy, has added his voice to the on-going rivalry between Ghana and Nigeria.

Earlier, some crop of top musicians across the country expressed their disappointment in most Ghanaian DJs for patronizing Nigerian songs that supporting their own.

It was alleged that Nigerians have a legislative instrument (LI) that prevents their DJ’s from playing more than 10 per cent of foreign songs in their country; a move which has eventually increased their share numbers to put their industry players on the map.

Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, the ‘Hero’ hitmaker disclosed that, he believes Ghanaian industry players especially musicians must emulate the Nigerians in terms of writing and producing songs.

Stonebwoy stressed that ‘we have to copy the Nigerians. They support each other and play 90-10. I think we should just copy them.’

He continued that, the deliberate move ‘is not about competition but it’s about inspiring Ghanaian musicians to break through the music industry.’

According to Stonebwoy, he believes artistes in Ghana are talented and skilled to produce better songs for the international market.

He said, ‘Afrobeats couldn’t get to where it is now without us. Rooting is back to legends like Osibisa, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley among others…’ he maintained.

Stonebwoy has released his third studio album titled “Epitles of Mama” EOM on Tuesday December 12, 2017.

His “BHIM Concert EOM release edition” is set to take place on the 22nd of December at the Accra International Conference Centre.

I'm scared of Sarkodie - Sista Afia

With a number of hit tracks to her credit in her young music life and having worked with top producers and musicians alike, Ghanaian songstress Francesca Duncan Williams well-known in showbiz as Sista Afia reveals she is scared of rapper Sarkodie.

Responding to a question posed by a fan who wished to know when she would record a song with Sarkodie, Sista Afia in exclusive interview with NY DJ on RYSENSHYNE in Kumasi revealed she was extremely scared of the rapper hence the inability to approach him.

“Sarkodie has been in this industry for so long a time and built a very respectable and solid brand that makes it hard to touch him. Although I know he’s been very receptive to a number of young talents and has a very good heart especially for the female musicians, my fear is whether he would want to associate with the young brand, I’ve built or accept a feature from me”, she said.

Sista Afia is however optimistic that she will overcome her fears soon and make that move on Sarkodie.

Breaking into the music industry with Kro Kro No in 2015, Sista Afia has since released a couple of hit songs including Jeje which featured Shatta Wale, Yi W’ani, Are You Ready?, Kofi, Pass U featuring Medikal and a recent new single Slay Queen which is enjoying airplay on various platforms across the country.
