Award-winning Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy, born Livingstone Etse Satekla has warmed hearts on social media with a latest video of him dancing to Shatta Wale’s song, “Fredom”.
The video which was uploaded by fellow musician Desmond Blackmore, known in the entertainment circles as D-Black showed a very lively Stonebwoy dancing his heart out in a night club to his colleague’s song.
D-Black who shared the video which has since gone viral captioned it, “Last nite Before the wahala | @stonebwoyb at Club Onyx @clubonyxgh jamming to @shattawalenima’s #Freedom jam! If we had genuine love for each other’s music and persons, supported each other selflessly, our industry would be a far more profitable one and we’d reach much greater heights! Unfortunately this is what our neighboring countries have over us... Too much hate and pull him down out here ... Positivity over Negativity”.
The “Vera” hit maker preached and advocated for respect and appreciation of talent in the Ghana music industry in other to promote growth.
He revealed in his post that Ghanaian musicians needed to support one another but more importantly, support the work of fellow artistes instead of taking the approach of envy and ‘pull him down’, his post insinuated.
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been perceived in the media as arch rivals in the dancehall music genre in Ghana.
Their rivalry has been so highly patronized that both artistes have ended up giving each other nicknames. Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah refers to Stonebwoy as “Sergeant Lee” and Stonebwoy in turn calls Shatta Wale, “Corporal Nii”.
The two award-winning artistes however made headlines in Ghana and on social media when they shared the same stage in one performance at Stonebwoy’s “Ashiaman to the World” concert.
It was at the same concert that Stonebwoy’s wife, Loiusa Satekla was attacked by some assailants who initially had target to attack Stonebwoy.
