Where Has Our Local Music Taken Us? – Stonebwoy Quizzes Gyedu Blay Ambulley

Ghanaian dancehall/reggae artiste, Stonebwoy has replied Gyedu Blay Ambulley after the latter advised him to quit dancehall propagate the Ewe language through his songs.

Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM which was monitored by zionfelix.net, Stonebwoy questioned how far our local music has gotten us to.

The multiple-awarding musician challenged that he has so many Ewe songs that he sings on big platforms across the world.
He said he perform songs in many Ghanaian dialects, from Ewe, Asante Twi, Ga and others.

The Bhim Nation Boss admitted that the foundation of Ghana’s music was highlife but things are evolving in this modern era.

Stonebwoy touted his ability to match the current trend of global music and put his beloved country on the world map.

He believes his identity is always felt in any song that he churns out.

The ‘Tuff Seed’ composer stated that he agrees with Mr Ambulley to some extent, but he has not deviated from letting his identity as a Ghanaian known to the International community.

Stonebwoy further stated that he respects the efforts of veteran Ghanaian musicians—but he was saddened because they failed to make Highlife compete with other genres recognized internationally.

He asserted that it would have been easy for the new crop of Ghanaian artistes to continue the mark they left behind if they were able to make any giant strides within the global music scene.
