Ghanaians have become very aware of instances where international media outlets misrepresent details regarding African countries or individuals and - lately - have wasted no time in calling them out for their errors.

The most recent media outlet to have landed on Ghanaian's crosshairs on social media has been the BBC's (British Broadcasting Corporation).

In a recent tweet that's now been deleted, BBC Africa used the wrong photo of Stonebwoy (screenshot above) after interviewing him regarding the release of his new album titled "Epistles of Mama".

The BBC later deleted the erroneous tweet, apologized for it, and shared another tweet - this time - with the proper photo of STonebwoy
