Another day and an all-new development in the Stonebwoy -Shatta Wale fight.
You wouldn’t believe who has jumped into the arena to fight for Shatta Wale now…
Well not that it is a surprise though – but one wouldn’t expect Jon Benjamin to wade into “who is more popular than the other” in a Shatta Wale vs Stonebwoy argument.
But as a very close friend of Shatta Wale and someone who has used a picture of him and Shatta Wale as his Twitter avi, it is no surprise that he would be on Shatta’s side of the argument.
Here is how he got involved…
Ghanaian musician, Stephanie Benson told a local media house that Stonebwoy is more popular in the United Kingdom (UK) than any other Ghanaian music – including Shatta Wale of course.
That hit Jon Benjamin straight in the heart, especially for someone who knows both countries that well.
He once served as the UK High Commissioner to Ghana and he is obviously from the UK.
Jon then shot back saying “Household name in the UK”? I can’t think of a single friend or relative of mine in London who has ever mentioned or even heard of Stonebwoy, sorry.”
Harsh? Maybe not.
But the thing here is that no matter where Jon Benjamin is, he keeps interacting with Ghana – his fav subjects are Bishop Daniel Obinim and John Dumelo.
