Fans of Stonebwoy in the Western Region have voiced their preparedness to give him a rousing reception as a show of support to the artiste who is billed to perform alongside his protégé, Kelvynbwoy in Takoradi.
Speaking to journalists, a spokesperson for Bhimnatives of Takoradi Technical University, Clement Bannerman-Williams, urged all fans of Stonebwoy to join the welcome procession in honour of the afropop singer.
He said the rationale behind the special welcome is to encourage Ghanaians to support Ghanaian musicians against the backdrop of the recent Zylofon Media and Menzgold Launch Concert held on August 24 in Lagos, Nigeria, where top Ghanaian artistes such as Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale received unfriendly audience reaction during their performances.
According to Mr. Bannerman-Williams, artiste managers must acknowledge strength in numbers and liaise with their core fan bases across the country and beyond to ensure that artistes receive the best reception everywhere they go.
He said Bhimnatives in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis are ready to meet and interact with their “hero,” Stonebwoy, who was recently described by founder of Fountain Gate Chapel, Rev. Eastwood Anaba as an exceptionally intelligent lyricist.
The 2015 Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year, Stonebwoy, will appear as a special guest artiste as the Afro Beats Experience Tour stops in Takoradi on September 29 at the Vienna City Beach.
