Samini finally Explains his problem with Stonebwoy
Dancehall act, Samini, reveals that he has no problems with Stonebwoy, he only pretended to be offended with him because of publicity
Ghanaian artiste, Samini has revealed that he does not have any issues with his colleague Stonebwoy despite appearing to be angry at him over the past couple of weeks.
Samini had been heaping "insults" on Stonebwoy on his various social media platforms ever since Stonebwoy's 'Asaase Sound Clash’ with Shatta Wale.
According to him, he should have been the one facing off against Shatta Wale and not the trending dancehall artiste. He also expressed his displeasure at the fact that Stonebwoy did not tell him of the battle only for him to hear about it from Shatta Wale.
“You people are trying to tell me that you would watch Shatta Wale go and clash my son Stonebwoy who Shatta Wale started to diss and beef because he was my artiste,”
“Pitching Shatta against Stonebwoy is a mismatch. We like placing square pegs in round holes. I expect my son Stonebwoy to tell Shatta that until he finishes what he started with me, he can’t come down to his level to clash him cos it is not his fight,” he had earlier said.
Now, the legendary dancehall artiste has admitted that he only pretended to have a problem with Stonebwoy just to trend. He mentioned that his apparent beef was strategic to become more relevant on the scene since Stonebwoy was at the time.
“My rants on social media about the clash was to have me trend, and I achieved that. It was my smart way to get involved as well. There is still unfinished business between me and Shatta Wale. I wasn’t surprised to see Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale names come up for the SoundClash. My longevity in the game is a good reason enough to include me in Sound Clash such as this one. I don’t see the reason why anyone would disagree with me on this,” Samini said.
“I don’t see me and Stonebwoy having a ‘head on’ sound clash in a competitive bout because ‘Father & Son’ don’t have to do that, perhaps it would have to be a family vibe sort of with Stonebwoy on the microphone; if anything between me and Stonebwoy on the microphone it will be more like a party clash and not anything so serious. It still remains a family thing between me and Stonebwoy forever. HighGrade Family and Bhim Nation are families forever and I won’t change that narrative.”
He further expressed his admiration for the initiative brought about by Asaase Radio in putting together the two most controversial artistes in Ghana.
“I am proud of the genre I am part of. Aside from my concerns raised, I am singularly excited about this. It is the best thing to ever happen in the history of Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall music. And the bigger reason for the clash which is to crush COVID-19 even makes me doff my hat for Asaase Radio 99.5fm.”
