Stonebwoy has courted attention for himself in Nigeria with a comment that has seen Nigerians coming at him.
During an Instagram live conversation with Tunde Balogun, a top Nigerian media personality, Stonebwoy said “Nigerians have to always pass through Ghana, why? There’s a blessing here that you guys tap from and run with. No Ghanaian artiste who is big in Ghana had ever had to go to pass through Nigerian to qualify to blow in the country”.
The Ghanaian dancehall act mentioned Mr Eazi as an example to support his claim. Stonebwoy’s comments made headlines on Nigerian blogs, attracting reaction from Nigerians who aren’t excited about what he said. “Why have they not tapped into that blessing themselves,” a Nigerian social media user wrote in reply.
Others have used unprintable words to describe Stonebwoy, who featured Keri Hilson on his latest Anloga Junction album. “Loool, if I didn’t school in Ghana I wouldn’t have known any Ghanaian artist Loool” an Instagram user with the handle @thriftbysophie wrote in reaction to his comment.
