Stonebwoy eulogises Peetah Morgan

In a recent online post, Stonebwoy credited his genesis as a global superstar to Morgan Heritage, who gave him his first shot on an international stage.

He wrote, "You Always Introduced Me On Stage with so much Love and Believe And Expressed How Proud You Are Of Me For Championing The Reggae/ Dancehall Genre In Ghana With So Much Passion And Investment.”

Speaking about Stonebwoy's relationship with Morgan Heritage, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh, the group's marketing lead in Africa, said,

"They were all very fond of Stonebwoy. Peetah, especially on his several trips to Ghana, would always insist they met before flying out.”

Boadu-Ayeboafoh also recounted the influence of Morgan Heritage on Stonebwoy, saying:

"The impact after that 2015 tour in Melkweg was huge. Stonebwoy became a global firebrand after Peetah Morgan's profound introduction, which was more like a co-sign. Since then, Stonebwoy has worked with almost all the top stars in Jamaica, from Sean Paul to the Marley family. That has always been Morgan Heritage's style of working with new artistes across the globe. And it is sad Peetah won't be here any more, but the Heritage will continue."
