Ghanaian dancehall musician, Stonebwoy has been described as a blessing by Australia-based Afrobeats musician Mike Akox after they shared one stage at a concert four years ago.
This was revealed in an interview with MzGee on the New Day show on TV3, January 2021 by Mike Akox who is in Ghana to promote his songs.
“That man (Stonebwoy) is a blessing, four years ago he was in Australia to play a show and in Australia I’m pushing the Afrobeats there and the other upcoming artistes as well, Stonebwoy came and I opened for him at the show.
”I went to his apartment and he received me so well, you know I even cooked for him and then we were just doing freestyle kind of thing, and they were like: Mike sing, sing!, and he was like: turn the music off!, so we turned the music off and I started singing, as soon as I started singing, he was like: “It’s okay stop you got it!” he stated
Mike Akox told MzGee that, after the concert and Stonebwoy almost leaving, he looked at him straight in the eye and told him that they shall work together, so he should wait for him to get home to Ghana first, and four years after that there are so many artistes he has met because Stonebwoy decided to record a song with him.
Mike Akox also went ahead explained how emotional he was during their song video shoot to an extend of hugging Stonebwoy and thanked him for collaborating with him on the song and his reply was: “when God blesses you with a good eye for talents, you see them when you meet one”.
