Stonebwoy Gives Details About His New Def Jam Deal

Published

on

On Thursday (May 05), a group of journalists, including anchors from major news networks, music executives, and professionals, met with Stonebwoy, a Ghanaian Afropop, dancehall, and reggae musician, for an all-new press engagement.

The nearly 2 hour interaction was organized by Universal Music Group (UMG), label divisions Def Jam Recordings, 0207 Def Jam, and Def Jam Africa, and saw the celebrated musician give extensive details about his new Def Jam X UMG global partnership deal, ambitions for his career trajectory, year forecast, and vision for enlightening the world about African culture.

Martin Addo, KV Online Talent; Khadijadt El-Alawa – Universal Music Group, Ghana; Lorato Masepe, Senior PR/Comms, Def Jam Africa; and Alec Boateng, one of the co-Presidents of a newly-launched frontline Universal Music UK label: 0207 Def Jam sat on the panel.

The multi-award-winning African artist has served as a watershed moment in the continent’s global representation. Since 2012, he has established himself as one of Ghana’s most influential musical minds through international touring, notable collaborations, and a string of hit singles.

Remaining loyal to his ethos of lifting the spirits of those around him and those beyond his reach, he solidifies an already illustrious career that has spawned four albums, countless hit records, movie roles, and philanthropic work by signing to Def Jam Recordings, 0207 Def Jam, and Def Jam Africa, all of which are supported by UMG labels worldwide.

On signing to Def Jam, Stonebwoy said: “The acheivements of def Jam validates itself, evaluating the type of creatives that are working with the label; thusly, I accept that a weight such as myself joining the Def Jam family is about to be a more noteworthy accomplishment for us all particularly pushing my art, music, and masterfulness in general to the world.”

He also disclosed that, the new deal will not compel him to change his style of music. Even though DefJam is well-known for producing and managing hip-hop and R&B artists, the serial hitmaker reiterated his commitment to his roots (afro-dancehall, reggae, afrobeat, and highlife).

According to the Bhim Nation President, the style of music he is known for played a significant role in attracting the DefJam Recordings Africa deal, so he sees no reason to change. He did, however, admit that there will be a “different” ‘Stonebwoy,’ which will cement his “versatility” as an artist and also appeal to new listeners from all over the world.

Speaking on how plans to leverage this groundbreaking signing to continue breaking into the global market, Stonebwoy said: “Def Jam is renowned for its global capabilities, so a signing like this will go a long way toward exposing my very huge talent to the world. I’ll have to keep working hard, even harder than I used to, in order to achieve the much-needed Global status”.

“Moving forward, God willing, there’s going to be more music, more heights, and Africa shall continue to be celebrated”, He added

Stonebwoy, aka Livingston Satekla is no stranger to success. Having been the recipient of multiple acclaimed awards such as Best International Act: Africa at the BET Awards, Artist of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards and two Billboard plaques, he has been described as the king of ragga and dancehallin’ for Africa in his career. He has duetted with international artists such as Keri Hilson, Sean Paul, Trey Songz, Burna Boy, Alpha Blondie and many more – and has rocked stages from the UK to the USA, Australia, Italy, Puerto Rico and Amsterdam – making his electrifying touring an integral part of his career.

Freedom Jacob Caesar Reacts After Wildlife Move To Seize Tigers

Published

on

Nana Kwame Bediako, a business entrepreneur also known as Freedom Jacob Caesar Cheddar, has admitted to keeping two tigers in his home.

He claims he had the two tigers for six months.

The presence of two tigers in Wonder World Estates, Avenue Lincoln, near the British High Commission in Ridge, Accra, had alarmed some residents.

A section of the public took to social media to draw the attention of the Ghana Police Service to the situation, which they believe is illegal.

In response, Freedom Jacob Caesar stated that he followed all procedures when bringing the animals to Ghana in order to increase tourism.

In an interview with TV3, he stated that he bought them with the intention of making Ghana the first country on the continent to have them.

“First and foremost, you are correct; I have two tigers that I purchased in a bidding war between Ghana and Dubai. I was the private sector representative who sparked my interest in purchasing these two animals. But we went through the procedure; the animals are seven months old and still in their infancy.”

“I went in to purchase these animals in order to increase the value of tourism in our country.” I wanted to enter the Safari World by ensuring that Ghana is the first country in West Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa, aside from South Africa, to have these animals.”

“We wanted to be the first to have it, so I ordered both the male and female versions.” I’ve been storing them for six months. I brought experts from outside to create a safety cage for these animals, so they don’t become dangerous to the public.”
