Fast rising global icon Stonebwoy has released his third studio album titled ANLOGA JUNCTION.
Barely a week after the release of the album, most music streaming sites were buzzing with numbers. In an interview with Bright Ellis, drive host of Global 105.1 FM in Ho yesterday, the president of bhim nation, Stonebwoy expressed his appreciation to fans and music lovers of their committed support over the years.
“The masses, the fans are solely to be praised for this and the management also get some credit for the results and the success we are all enjoying. I’m grateful for the fans, management, the people, radio presenters and everybody”
Stonebwoy in the quest to encourage music lovers to visit digital music platforms to buy/stream their works said it breaks his heart when some of their works are made available free by some bloggers.
“It breaks my heart, it feels like you’ve been robbed off your hard earned work. I’ve been one of the advocates on this issue. When I started to say it, people bashed me, a lot saw it somehow. Elsewhere in the world, you can own a blogspot but to go get people’s creative work and put on your site and put your tag on them is stealing and its just wrong”
Stonebwoy therefore advised bloggers to get links of contents from the original sites and put on their sites which he believes is a fair share.
“This is no fight, this is a thing of understanding, this is dialogue. If you continue to put the links from the right source onto your page for people to come to your page to click and it directs them to the original site, that’s a win-win for us all. In a matter of time some of us will be able to hold interviews with you to drop exclusives on your sites“.
The Top Skanker hit crooner has bemoaned that bloggers are raking monies that belong to artistes
“In most instances they do get the sales of that song into their pockets which is very illegal. This is because, I put out the song, you go grab them and put on your site and you tell them to download them. You’re making money off my sweat“.
Stonebwoy has said he’s much more elated that fans are beginning to realize that getting songs from the original source is the way to go.
“I’m proud of the fans, supporters and the masses now, they are even against this because they’re the ones consuming the materials. They want the materials from the right source“.
On 24th April, Stonebwoy released his third studio album which features Keri Hilson, Nasty C, Diamond Platinumz, Alicia Harley, Jahmiel, Zlatan, Kojo Antwi, Chivv and Spanker.
He also worked with producers like Mix Master Garzy, Streetbeatz, M.O.G. Beatz, Spanker, Riga, Phantom, Ipaapi and others.
