Regardless of Everything, I’ll Be Remembered as The First African Dancehall Artiste to Have Won BET Awards – Stonebwoy

Amidst all the controversies surrounding Stonebwoy’s nomination into 2017 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards, he has come out to make the world known especially Ghanaians about the history he has made so far as an artiste.

The artiste who was speaking exclusively to Pulse TV opined that regardless of how people see the BET awards and especially the one he won, he holds it in high esteem because even when he is dead, he will be remembered as the first African Dancehall artiste to have won the BET.


“It’s history that I am the first Dancehall/Reggae artiste in Africa to have won the BET. Even if I die they will remember it because it is written and it is there for everyone to see.”

The artiste reminiscing his first BET experience in the year 2015, he recalled that before he went to the venue for the awards, although he could not tell who will win the award, but he was very optimistic that a Ghanaian will win.


“Even before I went for the awards program, I was sure that a Ghanaian was going to pick that award. I was not sure who it will be because I and Sarkodie were the only nominees for Ghana. I told my cousin a Ghanaian was going to pick the award and when they mentioned my name I had goose bumps all over and I went up there to pick the award and thanked the world for believing in me.”

Like earlier said, Stonebwoy has been nominated for this year’s BET alongside Wizkid, Davido, Mr Eazi, Tecno and two other South African acts including AKA.
