Afro dancehall artiste Livingstone Etse Satekla, better known by his stage name Stonebwoy has disclosed that he had to push to get a verse on Jamaican musician Sean Paul’s latest album titled Life and Living.

Speaking to Joy News’ Catherine Opoku-Asamoah, Stonebwoy said when he visited Sean Paul in Jamaica recently, he listened to the almost completed album.

Very impressed with what he heard, he asked to be featured on the album.

He disclosed that he pushed to get a verse on a song on the album even though he was told that it was near ready. 

“I was like nah, I have to be on this album; he says it’s pretty much closed and I said I don’t mind, just open up a thing…so he goes on to the album and opens a verse for me,” Stonebwoy further explained.

A few weeks ago Sean Paul had Showered praises on Stonebwoy. During an Instagram live session, he commended Stonebwoy for doing authentic dancehall music.

Sean Paul said he respects the ‘Nominate’ singer because he is one artiste that actually goes to Jamaica for the production of his music.

“There are lot of people that do dancehall but they don’t say, ‘I do dancehall’, he said.

“They don’t come to Jamaica for the production so I really respect that about him,” he added.

Sean Paul further said Stonebowy knows that music developed in Jamaica is authentic hence his numerous visits to better his music.

The album also featured talented international artistes such as Mavado, Buju Banton, Busy Signal and a host of others. 

Stonebwoy is the only guest artiste who is a non-Jamaican artiste to be featured on the album. 

Sean Paul recruited Stonebwoy on the remix of his song, ‘Guns of Navarone’, which also featured Jesse Royal and Mutabaruka.
