Stonebwoy has spoken highly of legendary African Reggae artiste of Ivorian descent Alpha Blondy in a new interview on Hitz FM.

The Ghanaian Dancehall act who had the rare privilege of working with Alpha Blondy recently said he will be happy if Ivorian great blesses him.

“I bow to Alpha Blondy. I want him to bless me because the Alpha Blondy(s) are finished. I aspire to be like him,” Stonebwoy.

Seydou Koné – better known to music fans as Alpha Blondy – was born in Dimbrokro, Ivory Coast, on January 1st 1953. Young Seydou was brought up by his grandmother, Chérie Coco, who lavished care and attention on her cherished grandson.

But this did not always have the desired results. Indeed, Seydou was expelled from college in 1972 and the teenage rebel was sent to neighbouring Liberia to finish his studies at a school in the capital, Monrovia.

This move opened up new horizons for young Seydou. The official language of Liberia being English, it also meant that Seydou made enormous progress in the language he had started learning at school in Côte d’Ivoire.

After finishing school in Liberia, Seydou was thus perfectly well equipped to move to New York and continue his English studies in the Big Apple (SweetWineGroup).
