BIOGRAPHY

Artiste Contents

Stonebwoy Burniton (Real name: Livingstone Satekla) brands himself as the “Prince of African Dancehall” and goes with a baritone music descant – ‘BHIM’ (By His Imperial Majesty) which connotes an explosion of sound, lyrics, and talent. An actor, poet, singer, and writer, Stonebwoy is a talent that Ghana and the world are yet to experience fully. Stonebwoy says “I grew up listening to Ghanaian musicians specializing in Hip Life which is Hip Hop with local languages infused, I wanted to do something more worldwide. I like the energy that Dancehall and Reggae carry and knowing those who specialize in such genre are family anyway, it was only natural. Dancehall chose me, I didn’t choose it.”

Stonebwoy has been building up his repertoire of performances with major artists since he was young and working alongside Samini (Ghana’s King of Dancehall) since 2008, he has been able to hone his talent and performance skills. His performance on 30th December 2011 at “Resolution 2012” put together by Badhabbits Entertainment at the Accra International Conference Centre, The Dome was one of his greatest as he performed alongside other Ghanaian artists such as Black Prophet, Eazzy, Edem, Castro, Iwan, Jupiter, Kaakie, Samini and Sonniballi as the show featured International acts such as Kiprich and Busy Signal.

With his first album ‘Grade #1’ to his credit, he is looking forward to climbing international stages and handling other music projects with all acts across the globe.

He connected with Jamaica’s Karamanti in August and featured her on his song X-Factor which is currently being played on Jamaican radio and other stations in the Caribbean. He is due to release a collaboration with Gappy Ranks at beginning of November 2012.
