Associating with ex-convict Buju Banton will not affect my brand negatively – Stonebwoy
Ghanaian dancehall artiste Livingstone Etse Satekla, known in showbiz as Stonebwoy who doubles as the CEO of Burniton Music Group has expressed that recording a song with ex-convict Buju Banton will in no way affect his brand negatively.
This comes after he was recently pictured with the legendary Reggae superstar after his Afro Nation concert held in Portugal.
According to Stonebwoy who recently collaborated with Sean Paul and Beenie Man, the fact that Buju Banton has spent years in prison means nothing and will not have any negative effect on his brand.
Stonebwoy posited that Buju Banton after his release from prison was able to fill a stadium at his first concert.
According to the ‘Shuga’ hitmaker, he is not worried about the fact that Buju Banton has been to jail and that people make mistakes all the time.
“We all go court aaaa. This ex-convict came out of prison wey e dey fill the stadium. The West understands these things and that if people didn’t make mistakes, there wouldn’t be cells”, Stonebwoy explained.
