Stonebwoy not popular in UK – Jon Benjamin

Outspoken British diplomat, Jon Benjamin has rejected claims by singer Stephanie Benson that Stonebwoy is better known in the UK than other musicians.

His comment comes following reports that, Ghanaian-born UK based international singer Stephanie Benson has said that dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, is well known in the UK than other musicians in Ghana.

“Stonebwoy is big in the UK, everybody knows about him there, but the others are not so known there. I went for my radio tour just before I came with the song ‘One More’, and a couple of my songs ‘Goodbye and ‘Good Feeling’ and everybody were asking me, do you know Stonebwoy and I said yes!” Stephanie Benson said.

According to the former UK High Commissioner to Ghana, reports that Stonebwoy is more popular in the UK than other musicians is untrue.

The former British High Commissioner to Ghana shared this on his Twitter handle.

“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,” he said
