Pastor Eastwood Anaba (founder of the Eastwood Anaba Ministries, and a renowned spiritual leader all across Ghana) has lauded the quality of musician, Stonebwoy’s music.
In a recent sermon, the celebrated man of God related how captivated he was by the reggae/ dancehall firebrand’s lyrical depth, even likening him to a university professor:
“I listened to Stonebwoy, and I called my daughter to get me the number of that young man. I want to call him and tell him that he is very intelligent. I listened to the man, and it was almost as if, I was listening to a Professor from the University. So I told myself there are intelligent people in this country, blessed people in this country,” he said to a large congregation during the church service.
A gifted creator, Stonebwoy (born Livingstone Etsey Satekla) —while he reigns with party songs, has also dispatched soulful songwriting over a consistent career spanning about a decade.
Stonebwoy, via social media, expressed how greatly encouraged Mr. Anaba’s words have made him. He also pointed out that he regarded the comment as a “responsibility”:
“Good morning world. This touched my spirit. I can’t explain how. To be named amongst the intelligent by Rev. Eastwood Anaba of @EastwoodAnabaMinistries is actually a responsibility. An Obligation to achieve, a task to stay put” he posted.
Signed to Zylofon Media, Stonebwoy, is still promoting his 2017 album, “Epistles of Mama,” as well as “Top Skanka,” his latest single.
