The 33-year-old star said that if an artiste manages to lay their hands on bigger names to collaborate with, it makes it easy for the exposure but it doesn’t necessarily solidify the content.
“Collaborations is not a ground for testing, it is a ground for 'let’s get the best out of the both of us'.”
When asked if he felt African music has arrived, Stonebwoy said that African music has got to a place that hasn’t been reached yet in our present time. According to him, there has never been a better time like this.
He also added that it is good to make the best of this period because our present will become what the future would build upon.
