Ghana’s BET award winning talent, Stonebwoy, has been enskinned as the ‘Sapashini’ [Dancehall Warrior] of Ghana by the regent of Tamale, Gukpegu Naa Alhaji Abdulai.
Stonebwoy was in Tamale for his concert at the Tamale Sports Stadium when he paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief.
According to Gukpegu Naa, “Stonebwoy has been a powerful force that fights to defend his turf in the music industry. he uses his music as a tool to defend the weka and the oppressed; he is a warrior. He is the Sapashini of Dancehall.”
Stonebwoy returned from Australia not long ago, where he filled auditoriums. When he touched down at the Kotoka International Airport, he called on Ghanaians to fight to maintain peace.
“Many other artistes have done peace songs, and I respect that because they are all for a good purpose to promote and accentuate the need for us to maintain peace always. No disrespect but I don’t necessarily need to do a peace song to drive the message across. Even though this year I haven’t done a peace song [yet], I believe my hit single ‘Run Go’ sends a strong message and a caution word to all and sundry on why we should maintain calm, love and unity among us. Where are we gonna ‘Run Go?’ Already, I’m using the Tamale concert as a start off point to drive that campaign. I think most of y’all saw me tweeting about that already.”
