Ghanaian dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has revealed that he has no friends in the music industry but admitting that there’s a level of support among artists in the music industry.
“We do support each other and it all comes back to understanding because when it comes to performing at shows, it is usually a win-win situation for the artists involved”
“I do not have friends though it depends on the details,”
“I won’t say, friends, you know when we say friends we shouldn’t underestimate the word friends so we might not use that to explain the type of relationship that I have…,” Stonebwoy added.
Speaking to Lexis Bill on Behind the Fame on Drive Time on Joy FM Monday, the “Bawasaba” hitmaker stressed that per the popular belief that he’s Samini is his boss, it is more to that as he called Samini his closest pal and big brother.
“I mean if we are talking about ‘friend-friend’, Samini is my big brother as I see it so and then,” he said.
Stressing on the relationship that exists between him and other artists he stated that he often speaks to them but he can’t pinpoint who’s a friend per his understanding of what a friend means.
“Mugeez is somebody I speak to on that level so I’m mentioning people that are like if it is supposed to be friend-friend…Edem we speak ‘once and once’, Yaa Pono we speak ‘once and once’, Kwaw Kese as well.”
He further stated that though support each other, he has no one in the industry that he speaks to constantly and even picks moves with.
“It’s not really necessary, it all depends on the heart…because sometimes we don’t talk for a long time, we don’t see each other but what’s in the heart remains if it’s for peace, [if] it’s for love we all know…,” the dancehall act said.
When Lexis Bill inquired if there is envy in the music industry, he quickly replied: “there is envy in life so it flows everywhere.”
