International Ghanaian reggae/ dancehall and Afropop giant Stonebwoy, yesterday (November 30), engaged with the press and other industry stakeholders regarding his forthcoming 4th studio project Epistles of Mama (EOM).
A listening session held at the premises of ZYLOFON Media saw the act, accompanied by members of his team ( Sammy Flex, Bulldog and Black Sidi) discuss songs and new visuals off the project. A double CD album, the project will be outdoored on December 12 this year.
A variety of local and international heavyweights also feature on the project: Sean Paul, Chronixx, Sarkodie, Pressure, I Octane, Efya, Vanessa Bling, Joey B among others.
Hugely anticipated, the record follows other well-received projects as Grade 1, Necessary Evil, and Livingstone. A tribute to mother Catherine Satekla who passed in 2015, EOM joins a list of top GH acts to drop projects this year; others including Sarkodie, EL, and Becca, Trigmatic, and MzVee.
Stonebwoy also joins other global reggae stars as Gentleman, Ziggy Marley, Inner Circle, Tarrus Riley, Chris Martin, Jahmiel, Charly Black among others for next year’s edition of the Summer Jam festival slated for July 6th – July 8th.
Winner of several awards including VGMA Artist of the Year and BET Best International Act: Africa (both in 2015), Stonebwoy is CEO of the BMG imprint (home to budding singer Kevin Boy), and is franchise act for ZYLOFON Music. He also featured on Morgan Heritage’s “Avrakadabra” (which has been nominated for ‘Best Reggae Album’ in the 2018 Grammy Awards, alongside ‘Chronology’ by Chronixx, ‘Lost In Paradise’ by Common Kings, ‘Wash House Ting’ by J Boog, and ‘Stony Hill’ by Damian Marley).
