Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, has released a remix version of Sarkodie’s reggae single, Love Rocks.
The single which also features Tema based producer Killbeatz, is a freestyle on the instrumental of Sarkodie’s Love Rocks and is meant to prove Stonebwoy’s versatility and ability to perform different music genres.
The song is entirely in Jamaican Patois and this might prove a challenge for music lovers who are not familiar with that style of music.
In the song, Stonebwoy, talks about how far he has come in the industry to the point where his name is mentioned in both the church and the zongo.
He stresses that he is the pacesetter and never follows blindly, claiming that he is the best in his generation.
He stresses that God is the one responsible for his success and refers to his fans as his biggest awards. He states that he is the stone the builders refused who has now become the cornerstone and as such, he refuses to be dragged into feuds and squabbles with other artistes.
In an interview with the Bhim Nation hitmaker, last Tuesday, he acknowledged that 2014 had been a very successful year for him with the release of several hit singles and performances at almost all the major events in the country.
Stonebwoy gave a good account of himself on all the platforms he had the opportunity to perform on much to the admiration of patrons at these events.
“I have to admit that 2014 was a very good year for me and the entire Bhim Nation family. Most of the songs I released topped the charts such as Baafira, Bhim Nation, More Gyal, Not Again and Can’t Cool and the songs on which I was featured were also hits as well. Additionally, most of my songs are timeless because songs like Give It To Them and Ghetto Love which were released more than a year ago are still able to move the crowd,” he said.
Stonebwoy attributed his success last year to the grace and guidance of God and the fact that his fans were behind him providing support every step of the way.
“Members of the Bhim Nation are more than just fans, I consider them family and I owe my success to their efforts,” the Baafira hitmaker said.
Stonebwoy pointed out that his Ashiaman concert held last December was just one of many projects planned to give back to his fans.
