It’s Hard To Make It Outside Accra – Flowking Stone

Published

on


Complaints about the music industry being too centred in Accra have been ongoing for some time now. With the exception of a few acts from the other regions who have broken through, it seems only Accra-based artistes get most of the attention.
While some may argue that talent can push an artiste no matter where he is, rapper, Flowking Stone, who is based in Kumasi, has told Showbiz that it is indeed difficult for a musician to make it outside Accra.


According to Flowking Stone, everything is happening in Accra and once a musician is not there, his or her chances of making it are slim.

“Everything is happening in Accra. Apart from all the connections and sponsors here, all the event centres are here in Accra, talk of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), the National Theatre, the Fantasy Dome, the Banquet Hall of the State House just to mention a few,” he said.

He explained that apart from Fancy Gadam who has been very successful in the Northern Region, all the other artistes are struggling to make it in the other regions.

“It looks like you need to be based in Accra before you make it big time. Almost all the A-list artistes are in Accra and that explains why most artistes are moving from the other regions to Accra,” he said.

Flowking Stone, who says his core fans are in Kumasi, told Showbiz he cherished where he came from because he usually gets 80 percent of his shows in Kumasi.

“I get almost 80 percent of my shows in Kumasi, I was one of the busiest artistes last year but because I was in Kumasi, hardly did anyone notice me because all the focus was on Accra,” he disclosed.

Away from not making it in Accra, Flowking Stone, real name Kwaku Nsiah Boamah, released his latest album Gifted II in December.

The 18-track album has songs such as Nana, Let Them Know, Gifted, Blow My Mind, I Want, Amazing, Darling, Soldier, Rundem, Hustlers, My Place and Lady

Stonebwoy Is Very Simple & Full Of Wisdom – OV

Published

on

Winner of MTN Hitmaker Season 7 and new BHIM Nation signee, Okailey Verse, has said that her mentor, Stonebwoy is every honest, upfront and a very simple guy.

“It’s fun working with this man [Stonebwoy]… he is down to earth, I have never met anybody like him before, he will let you know this is what you should do and this is what you should not do, he will tell you the truth, he will be honest with you, he is raw like that, he is very plain,” she said in an interview on Accra-based Hitz FM.

OV noted that Stonebwoy has a lot of wisdom and knowledge when it comes to music and that she’ll be ready to be lectured by him.

And if in anyway Stonebwoy scolds her, she’ll not take it to heart because she knows he simply want her good.

“He is a big person, he is very knowledgeable and so if he tells me stuffs like that, I will really need to learn hard. I remember I was doing a particular song with him, it wasn’t ‘Want Me’ but a particular song and I remember my verse, I got a few melodies I had to fix certain lyrics in it and he was like, ‘what you said here, does it make sense …?”

The reigning “ruler of the mic” added that she believes she is good enough hence the opportunity to work with Stonebwoy’s record label, Burnington Music Group (BMG) and that if Stonebwoy should scold her, that means she has to work extra hard.

“If he tells me that I’m not good enough, it means I have to work hard because if I’m with him, I don’t think he will pick somebody who is not good enough…if he tells me that, it means I need to work hard. (or I might be sleeping),” she said.

I’ll Be A Hypocrite If I Should Go To Willi Roi’s Funeral’ – Stonebwoy

Published

on

Ghanaian Dancehall icon, Stonebwoy born Livingstone Etse Satekla has said that he’ll look like a hypocrite if he attends the funeral of late Willi Roi.

When Willi Roi was alive, the duo never agreed. Willi is someone who always paint Stonebwoy black.

Willi has called the BHIM Nation CEO names; some are that he’s rude, a dull-witted person who can never be smart among other unprintable names.

Well, after his death, some BHIM nation fans were happy to some extent.

As it stands, Stonebwoy in an interview with Zionfelixwas asked about how he felt when he heard about the news of Willi Roi’s death.

He answered that he didn’t first believe when he saw the headlines on one of the popular blogs.

However, it was proved that indeed, he’s dead.

Zionfelix went on to ask Stonebwoy that would he in anyway attend Willi’s funeral?

The Baafira hitmaker responded that he wouldn’t mind going, if he’s around and have the time, he’ll pass through to show love.

However, even so, he’ll look like a hypocrite.

Because even if Willi was alive and threw a party, he believes that he (Stonebwoy), won’t be invited.

So why should he now go to his funeral?
