Stonebwoy granted an exclusive interview to a Kenyan website, www.sde.co.ke where he spoke about a wide range of issues concerning his new album, married life and the settling the unending debate about Ghanaian and Nigerian Jollof.
See below for excerpts:
P: what was the inspiration behind your new album Anloga Junction?
S: Anloga Junction is a place back home in Ghana. I come from a town called Anloga in the Volta region of Ghana, where the Anlo community have settled and I wanted to represent all the experiences that I learnt musically.
P: How did you get to work with Tommy Hilfiger?
S: I met Tommy about three years ago and he’s been styling me since, although I have my own clothing line in Ghana. He’s starred in many of my videos. I call him my ‘oga’. I always know that wherever I am all over the world, as long as there’s a Tommy Hilfiger store then I am sorted. I can just walk in and get what I need.
P: How’s your love life?
S: I’m a married man with two kids. My wife is a doctor.
P: How did you meet your wife?
S: The only thing I can say is that we met in Ghana.
P: What keeps you busy when you’re not making hits?
S: I am highly involved in my administrative work because I own a recording studio. I spend time with my family, do a lot of charity work and I rest. There is no time for hobbies.
P: What’s the most expensive thing you own?
S: My life, which I get for free – which is why I never stop thanking god. Because anything that can be bought is not expensive.
P: Nigerian or Ghanaian Jollof?
S: It’s always Ghanaian Jollof and even Nigerians know this. They know they don’t own it. There would be no Nigerian Jollof without Ghanaian Jollof.
