You Need To Hear This Afro-Dancehall Playlist From Stonebwoy

The Ghanaian reggae-dancehall star also sits down for an exclusive interview about his album, Epistles of Mama.

Ghanaian dancehall and reggae star Stonebwoy dropped his latest album, Epistles of Mama, late last year. The extensive record is dedicated to his late mother, who was his biggest fan.

The 24-song album can be essentially split in half, as 12 of the songs live in the dancehall realm and 12 are afrobeats tracks. This infectious blend has been described by his team as "Afro Dancehall," a shape-shifting and loose umbrella term that exemplifies the ongoing musical conversations between West Africa, Jamaica and the Caribbean.

We talked to Stonebwoy about the album below and also asked him to select an exclusive Afro Dancehall mixtape for us, which you can stream on OkayAfrica's Spotify and Apple Music curator channels.
