“Recognized as Africa’s King of Reggae/Ragga & Dancehall, Black Entertainment (BET) 2015 Best International Act, and Ghana’s very own, Stonebwoy, has sent people all over Africa ‘Strength and Hope’ in these trying times of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) with a passionate performance and a powerful message delivered at the just ended “Africa Day Benefit Concert At Home.”
The multiple award-winning musician and chief executive officer of Burniton Music Group, performed “Strength and Hope,” single extract of his chart topping fourth studio album, “Anloga Junction.” This tune had a top-notch Jamaican record producer and performing artiste, Kabaka Pyramid who dished out a roots riddim for Stonebwoy to ride on.

With this masterpiece, Stonebwoy comes-in spiritual, speaking directly to his viewers and consumers never to give up but rather hope for better days ahead. The message was apt, as he stated in some part of the lyrics that, in times like this, Africans living on the continent need strength within and strength from God, not the strength from the gym. Prior to his performance, he created awareness and how curb the spread of Covid-19 on the African Continent.
