Recently, Stonebwoy Burnington in an interview with CiTi TV made it clear that he has no challenger when it comes to proper Dancehall music. Thus, deep Dancehall music, not the ones some artistes have been singing here in Ghana which we cannot even tell whether its ‘Jama or Kpalongo’.
According to the Best Dancehall/Reggae Artiste of the year at the AFRIMA Awards 2018, his kingship in the Ghanaian dancehall industry is like that of the mighty King of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfour Osei Tutu II, which is beyond compare.
Stonebwoy who stands as the headliner of the BhimNation Fans said; “I don’t have to remind people that I am the king un this music industry. If Otumfour is King, he doesn’t have to remind his people that he is King,” he said
But his bragging spree did not sit well with former British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin who instantly threw his usual satire the way of Stonebwoy.
He insisted that Stonebwoy should have rather said he’s the Obinim of Ghanaian Dancehall and not Otumfuor. He further said that Stonebwoy’s claim are immodest.
Jon obviously reacted in this manner owing to his strong affiliation to the Shatta Wale. Recall that he recently told all the SM disciples that he’s actually the Godfather of the movement.
