On 21st October, the award winning Afro-dancehall star; Stonebwoy, tweeted something on his official twitter account which looks like he just got signed to Jamaica-based award winning Record label; VP Records.
Stonebwoy tweeted “Shouts To
@VPRecords @VP_Afrika We The First Ghanaian AfroDancehall/Reggae Artiste To have Penned!! B.H.I.M” accompanied with a couple screen-shots of himself and the Burniton Music Group logo which is an Instagram post by VP Records. However, there were no details attached to these posts than “Major Announcement Coming Soon” and “vpalmusic#gohigher #burnitonmusicgroup #sa #vpalmusic stonebwoyb@vpalmusic To a The World”
VP Records is based in both Jamaica and Queens – New York. The label started off about 50 years ago by Vincent Chin and his wife Patricia who are reggae pioneers… The label started off in Kingston Jamaica and later extended to other parts of the world. VP Records won Billboard’s “Best Independent Record Label” and “Best Reggae Imprint Label” several times…
VP Records has their own worldwide distribution platform known as VPal Music. They have been behind the success of most of the top Reggae/Dancehall artists such as Beenie Man, Sean Paul, Shabba Ranks, Beres Hammond, just to mention a few… This looks like a big step in the right direction for Stonebwoy as a unique artist and the most recognized Afro-dancehall artist in Africa and probably the world.
Aside the good news, Stonebwoy has just been listed among the artists joining Morgan Heritage on their European tour dubbed “Strictly Roots European Tour” which will be kicking off from Amsterdam (Netherland) on November 2nd, Utrecht (Netherland) on November 4th, Lausanne (CH) November 5th and Brussels (Belgium) November 6th.
Congratulations to Stonebwoy and we wish him all the best in his career… If you are in Europe, don’t miss the dates!
