Stonebwoy Drops A Ghanaian Dancehall Track Inspired By Rihanna’s ‘Work’

Ghanaian star Stonebwoy shares the music video for "People Dey," a single influenced by Rihanna and Drake's "Work."


Stonebwoy has been bagging lots of accolades lately, winning the Best International Act: Africa category at the BET Awards and Artist of the Year at the 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

The Ghanaian dancehall star, who also recently played Lauryn Hill’s Diaspora Calling! festival in Brooklyn, keeps things heated with the new visuals for “People Dey.”

The track sees Stonebwoy riding a dancehall groove and flipping the chorus from Rihanna and Drake’s massive Caribbean-influenced single “Work,” making it entirely his own.

This isn't the first time "Work" has inspired a West African star. Burna Boy did his own cover of Rihanna's single a few months ago.
