XOkayAfrica: Ghanaian Dancehall Star Stonebwoy Drops By to Show Love

Ghanaian reggae-dancehall star stopped by OkayAfrica HQ in NYC. See the exclusive photos.

We get a lot of drop-ins at the OkayAfrica offices. 


Any given day, you're liable to see an afrobeats star, buzzing actor, fashion it-girl, or underground artist stopping by our Brooklyn headquarters to say what's up and scope out our multipurpose gallery, OkaySpace.

In our new series XOkayAfrica, we'll be capturing those visits through exclusive photos.

NEW YORK CITY—Stonebwoy was in high spirits when he dropped by OkayAfrica HQ.

A true jet setter, the Ghanaian dancehall star was in New York City for just one day, stopping by after playing a show in Washington, D.C. on his way to Jamaica for a music video shoot.

Stonebwoy, who was one of the highlights at last year's One Africa Music Fest, is coming strong from taking home the Ghana Music Awards for both Reggae/Dancehall Artiste and Song of the Year in 2016.

The singer and Burniton Music Group CEO is currently pushing his latest hit "Come From Far (Wogb3 J3k3)."

Stonebwoy told us he's got much more music on the way, including a new reggae project planned for later this year.

Check out our exclusive pictures of Stonebwoy at the OkayAfrica offices, taken by Ginny Suss.
