Stonebwoy bags 3 Grammy credits as the Global Award ceremony looms


Stonebwoy’s reputation has received a huge boost as  three albums  he featured on have been nominated in the upcoming Grammys.

The albums that were released in the year under review were picked for “containing at least 51% playing time of new reggae recordings,” according to the Recording Academy.

The nominees were unveiled yesterday, November 23rd, ahead of the Grammy ceremony scheduled to happen on January 31st.

The albums “Pamoja” by Etana, “Live N Livin” by Sean Paul, and “Royal” by Jesse Royal each scored a nomination in the “Best Reggae Album” category.

 “Pamoja”, has 16 tracks with the 6th featuring the Ghana international. This album was released on June 25th and was themed to bring together the world and cultures of Africa and Jamaica in both musical and lyrical form.

He grabbed another feature on “Live N Livin”—one of two albums from Sean Paul—which offers a collaboration over confrontation undertone that showcases unity in dancehall.

On Jesse Royal’s sophomore album “Royal,” which is incredibly versatile, multi-layered, rich in sound and message, the “Kpoo Keke” hitmaker also dropped some linest on the track “Dirty Money.” The album was released on June 10th.

The “Bhimnation” president is almost becoming a household name as far as featuring on Grammy hopeful tracks with this latest one, his fourth mention.

 In September 2020 being his first, the Ghanaian music legend received a certificate for his contribution as a featured musician on Morgan Heritage’s Grammy-nominated album “Avrakedabra.”

He was named to the GRAMMYs Recording Academy Class of 2021 in June 2021, providing him with the chance to celebrate, represent, and give back to music and its creators.

This invitation reflects the Recording Academy’s commitment to excellence and further growing its robust membership body. The invitations also reaffirm the Recording Academy’s recognition of the important contributions of music people to influence progressive changes within the music industry,” a statement by GRAMMYs said
