Morgan Heritage introduced me to a new market in Europe - Stonebwoy
2015 BET Best African Act, Stonebwoy, who is currently on media tour in South Africa has lauded Jamaican Reggae group, Morgan Heritage, for giving him opportunity to play on their “Strictly Roots” Europe Tour 2015.
"I’m honoured and grateful for Morgan Heritage for the platform they gave me on their tour in 2015. These are huge musicians I used to watch on TV and look up to them; then the works connected us and they put me on their tour and told the world to look out for me. That was a major step up and it means a lot to me”, he admitted.
I am the level of my career where I feel I need to open up more and challenge myself to do more than I've already done. The music is us and we are the music”, Stonebwoy said, on YFM 99.2 South Africa. He was hosted by Admiral & Jahseed on the “Raggatak” programme.
Morgan Heritage is an internationally known Reggae group from Jamaica; they won “Best Reggae Album” at the 58th edition of the Grammy awards with their album “Strictly Roots”. Stonebwoy is featured on Jemere Morgan’s (Gramps Morgan’s son) debut album "Transition" which got to 2nd position on the world Billboard.com chart.
Stonebwoy took the opportunity to briefly talk about his upcoming album “Epistles Of Mama” (EOM), due for official release soon – tentative release, March. It would come as a one drop album with notable features from Jamaica like Pressure Buss Pipe, and others.
Stonebwoy, born "Etse Livingstone Satekla", is one of the young but super-talented Ghanaian musicians putting his country (Ghana) on the international front.
