Dance-hall Sapashini reveals why he recruited Alicai Harley for latest jam

Published

GREATER ACCRA – Monday, April 6, 2020/BMG/ – The power of music as a unifying force has not just been recognized by those that create it, but by politicians, religious figures, advocates of social change, and people the world over. Black Entertainment TV (BET) award-winning artiste, Stonebwoy, has revealed that, he doesn’t discriminate against talents to accomplish a particular project.

According to the reggae/ragga and dance-hall artiste who described music as “the only universal language” and, as a community, stated that, musicians represent a fantastically diverse part of society whose talent, dexterity and prowess defines a particular situation or happening. He added that, making an unjust or prejudicial distinction in the treatment of different categories of creatives, especially on the grounds of race, sex, age, or status (“underground or mainstream”) is a bizarre activity that needs condemnation.

Speaking on Live 91.9 FM, in an interview with Antoine Mensah who asked him why he recruited an “up and coming” Jamaican UK-based dance-hall diva, Alicai Harley, for his latest single off the Angloga Junction album, born Livingstone Etse Satekla stated, the budding singer is a bag of talent, explaining that, the main motive for enlisting creatives for projects should be whether the performer or artiste is bringing pleasure to someone’s life and if that pleasure is not harming anyone, it is bigoted and arrogant to mock that individual.

Thus far, the Burniton Music Group – BMG front-liner revealed that, there are diverse talents, who are unarguably prolific and are seeking for opportunities to be in the limelight, so recruiting or hosting these group of creatives on a project is worth the commend.

On Friday, April 3, the Ghanaian reggae/dance-hall giant offered music lovers one more track, “Understand”, while waiting for his album Anloga Junction, scheduled for April 24th.

Produced by N2theA, based in England, “Understand” is an opportunity for Stonebwoy to deepen the Caribbean sounds of his music by surrounding himself with Aliciai Harley. The Jamaican-English artist, to be placed between grime and dance-hall, brings a particular freshness to the track on her verse and part of the chorus. The visual is by Jay Parpworth, known for his collaboration with Stefflon Don, and stages the duet in the warm light of an abandoned room as in the cold of the London towers.

Anloga Junction promises to be a diversified but also coherent album: after the Afro-dance-hall banger “African Party” and the smooth “Good Morning”, Stonebwoy delivers this time a sensual ambiance at the crossroads of Ghana, the United Kingdom and Jamaica.
