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?

Musician Quamina MP is not the sole owner of his breakthrough song, “Ewisa Y3 D3”, according to report.

This comes after the singer revealed in a recent interview that he nearly sold the song to Medikal due to hunger.

“At a point, I didn’t have anything to eat and God willing, I grabbed something to eat. It felt nice and I realised how fun it is to live a comfortable life”, he told Class FM last Friday.

But one of his camp members claims he refused to credit a friend who wrote the song together with.

A Facebook post by Ranger Sneh sighted by Pulse.com.gh claims musician Yung C who was featured on the hit song wasn’t properly credited.

He added that Quamina MP is ‘greedy’ and that his fame won’t last.

He wrote (unedited): “Quamina MP You and somebody do song and God being soo good the song blow, you say you nearly sell the song like you alone do am, massa acknowledge your brother YC De-Gunz (Yung C) and stop being greedy, you alone wan carry the fame, remember say #Adonai, #Ayoo, #baafira and other hit hit songs come pass go, yourself the wiase y3 d3 song self go leave you the artiste, learn how to acknowledge your brother #YUNG_C cause you guys compose the song together two years ago before thinking of featuring Kwesi on it, the song is own by both, but if he leave give you to enjoy the glory, learn sense and acknowledge him too don’t be greedy.”
