Ghanaian dancehall musician Stonebwoy has bluntly said that Nigeria did not invent or own the Afrobeats musical style.
He claims that despite their misconception that it was created and can only be found in Nigeria, the world always associates Nigerian music with Afrobeats. Stonebwoy stated this during a Pulse One-on-One interview in which he discussed his music and the Ghanaian music industry.
In the interview, the singer was asked where he believes Ghanaian music has progressed on the global industry scale, and he stated that it is still riding the waves of Nigerian music.
He went on to say that while the rest of the world believes Afrobeats originated in Nigeria, he knows that is not the case.
