Popular reggae dancehall and afropop artiste, Stonebwoy, has released his latest single, which he says, is to herald the launch of his newest album.
The song titled Bhim Nation, he says is the last song before he releases his much anticipated second album, Necessary Evil.
In Bhim Nation, Stonebwoy who sings and raps in both Jamaican Patois and Ewe, talks about how far his group, “Bhim Nation”, has come and acknowledges the fact that he is now the biggest artiste in the dancehall and afropop genre in the country.
The fast tempo song also contains a warning to his competitors that he is “untouchable” and “sicker than them by far”.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz last Thursday, Stonebwoy said the song was not to brag about himself but a tribute to his huge fan base who have supported him from the time he first burst onto the music scene and who continue to motivate him daily.
“I made this song just to show my die-hard fans that I appreciate their support. They have been very instrumental in getting me where I am now,” he said.
Stonebwoy revealed that although everything was set for the release of his album before the end of the year, he was yet to fix a specific date for the launch.
The Pull Up star said that although he was famous in musical circles for doing primarily afropop and dancehall songs, he was also interested in doing other genres of music as well.
He disclosed that he had a number of collaborations with artistes from other genres, which would be released with the launch of his new album. Most notably, he mentioned that he had a collaboration with Outlawz, the group of the late hiphop icon, Tupac Shakur, and asked Ghanaians to expect the song to be out soon.
Speaking about his BASS Awards nominations, Stonebwoy, who has been given the nod for honours in five categories namely; Artiste of the Year, Dancehall Artiste of the Year, Dancehall Song of the Year, Best Collaboration of the Year (Dancehall) and Best Performer, said he is not focusing on winning any award in particular because just being nominated was an honour in itself.
“It is an honour to be nominated for these awards because it means all my hard work and effort is being acknowledged and appreciated. In these types of awards, everyone is a potential winner so being nominated brings me joy,” he said.
Stonebwoy, real name, Livingstone Etse Satekla, has done collaborations with some of the big artistes in the country namely Samini, Irene Logan and Mugeez of R2Beez. Some of his most notable songs include Pull Up, Ghetto Love and Kwenaamu.
