Interview: Stonebwoy On His New Davido Collaboration & Creating an African Grammys

We spoke with the Ghanaian sensation about ending 2020 off sweetly and manifesting abundance in the new year.

Afro-dancehall phenom Livingstone Etse Satekla, aka, Stonebwoy truly is the gift that doesn't stop giving.

The Grammy-nominated star, who favours and excels at dancehall, reggae and afrobeats, has been around for more than a decade but continues to stay relevant and in shape to deliver hit after hit for not only his fans, but anyone who wishes to celebrate Ghana and the beauty she has to offer. Stonebwoy's pride and adoration for his home country beams through his words, rhythms and actions.

The Ghanaian singer-songwriter is still riding high off the success of his Anloga Junction album and is now sharing his latest collaboration with Nigerian heavyweight Davido. Anloga Junction, the Burniton Music Group CEO's fourth studio album, had something for everyone with notable features from US R&B songstress Keri Hilson and South Africa's Nasty C lending their voices and influences to the project.

Now, as the his final release of 2021, fans have been gifted early with Stonebwoy and Davido's electrifying hit "Activate".

"Activate" is the song we need to end off a year like 2020. The high energy, vibrant and hip shaking single and accompanying music video are all acting as tools towards manifesting an abundant, healthy, fun and carefree new year. And we really are convinced. We all need a somebody to activate and captivate us in 2021, if not ourselves.

We spoke with the musician about his latest and last release, decentralizing the West, quarantine style creativity and praying for good in 2021. Check out our interview with Stonebwoy below.
