Well, to those who think Stonebwoy is the exact opposite of Shatta Wale, you are grossly mistaken. I’ve always maintained that the fact that the Gringo hitmaker is outspoken and boisterous does not invariably makes Stonebwoy an angel.
Just recently, the Baafira hitmaker blew his trumpet in a way the tune will resonate in our ears by telling CiTi TV that he’s the Otumfour Osei Tutu II of Ghanaian Dancehall.
“I don’t have to remind people that I am the king in this music industry. If Otumfour is King, he doesn’t have to remind his people that he is King,” he said.
Stonebwoy further added that he has no challenger when it comes to ‘real’ Dancehall music in Ghana.
‘I do proper songs, I mean deep Dancehall music, not the ones some artistes have been singing here in Ghana which I cannot even tell whether its ‘Jama or Kpalongo’ he had said during the interview.
But his bragging spree did not sit well with former British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin who instantly threw his usual satire the way of Stonebwoy.
He insisted that Stonebwoy should have rather said he’s the Obinim of Ghanaian Dancehall and not Otumfuor. He further said that Stonebwoy’s claim are immodest.
Jon obviously reacted in this manner owing to his strong affiliation to the Shatta Wale. Recall that he recently told all the SM disciples that he’s actually the Godfather of the movement.
