As part of his media run, Award-winning Ghanaian Artist Stonebwoy on Tuesday, January 31 made an appearance on New York radio station, Power 105’s Breakfast Club.



Speaking on the show with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Nene Leakes, the BHIM Nation president touched on a myriad of subjects including his upcoming concert, December in Ghana, his deal with DefJam and new music amongst others.



It was no surprise hearing Stonebwoy touch immediately on “December in Ghana” and the vast prospects it holds for the country and the African Continent at large, with music and especially Afrobeats taking center stage and serving as a major catalyst for this historical phenomenon.


As clearly made by this interview, Stonebwoy gave voice to the need to capitalize on the opportunity not only on the music front but also with regards to development since the music, culture and everything it enshrines has now become of global interest and benefit.

In recent times, the popularity of the Continent has grown even more with the continued evolution of the Afrobeats genre and the breakout of some of the most talented Artists on the planet. Stonebwoy definitely fits this category and this can be seen from his recent appendage to the DefJam family.


Speaking on the Global deal, he mentioned his relationship with the president of DefJam Africa, Sipho Dlamini and how that contributed to making the partnership possible. Further, into the conversation, he hinted at the release of his first project in March since the deal.


Still speaking on current and forthcoming projects, the reggae dancehall artist announced his “My Homeland Concert," an event he publicized via his social media platforms on January 4 this year. The event which is scheduled to take place at the Palladium in Times Square, New York City on March 3 2023, is set to host a capacity of 2,100 Afrobeats and reggae dancehall fans.


As part of signing an artist contract with Universal Music Group-- Def Jam, he is currently on a North American tour in preparation for the release of his fifth studio album. This comes after he performed as the headlining act for a performance at the Irving Plaza in New York City with other Ghanaian performers in honour of Ghana's Independence Day. He claims that this performance will be intimate and requests that everyone come.


Getting to the tail-end of the conversation, Stonebwoy gave his opinion on the Meek Mill video incident in Ghana for the first time since it happened.


Speaking on the matter, he claimed that it was not much of a big deal and the entire situation stemmed from a lack of exposure to the nature of things and way of life in a typical African setting, citing that the rapper’s apology affirmed his true intentions which according to him were without any form of malice.


He also spoke briefly on his ban from the VGMA’s due to his altercation with colleague Shatta Wale while going ahead to laud ex- Blackstars captain Asamoah Gyan yet again for his pivotal role in getting his knee surgery done following a tweet he made earlier in appreciation of the ex-football star.
