Reggae/Dancehall and Afrobeats artist, born Livingstone Etse Satekla, popularly known as Stonebwoy is effectively on a publicity tour in the United States of America (USA).
Per Stonebwoy, also known as 1Gad, a music artiste and businessman, his latest album will have about 18 songs and will feature big names like Jamaica’s Shaggy and Africa’s Angelique Kidjo.
“There are some heavy names on there.
“I don’t even know if I can even release it right now but I could drop it and I am going to drop it over here [in America],”
He divulged, he has Reggae superstar Shaggy on the long play (LP).
“Imagine Shaggy and Stonebwoy; imagine Stonebwoy and Angelique Kidjo; imagine Stonebwoy and Dexta Daps,” he listed.

Stonebwoy highlighted that the Dexta Daps collaboration will be “for the ladies.”
The album, Stonebwoy’s fifth, will not only have commercially successful or mainstream acts.
1Gad explained that he has, for instance, “niche market female artistes on there,” because he believes in the “product” that will result from their collaboration in view of their talent.
He desires something “organic,” he said, and not forced.
“We have some beautiful stuff [on] there,” he touted. “Rest assured.”
The multiple award-winning Ghanaian act mentioned that the project will showcase some Amapiano and Reggae sounds.
“We have Amapiano on there,” he said. “Amapiano is actually the most popular style of music out of South Africa right now which is also weaving through the world.”
“We’re merging it with the Afrobeats proper,” the father of two noted. “I put [the] Dancehall flavour and my style over it as well.”
In fact, the album features “one of the biggest artistes and DJs from South Africa [called] Maporisa,” Stonebwoy further revealed, adding that his fifth is “like an 18-track album.”
“You’re going to get a Reggae song on there,” he again said. “You’re going to get beautiful songs.”
1Gad made these comments in an interview sighted by Class News’ Prince Benjamin.
