Former UK High Commissioner Jon Benjamin has stated emphatically that Stonebwoy isn’t a household name in the UK; which however suggests Shatta Wale is more popular.

The former UK-Ghana Ambassador Jon Benjamin in a latest tweet has disagreed with Ghanaian-born UK based international singer Stephanie Benson who stated that Reggae and Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy is a household name in the UK unlike his counterparts in the Ghanaian music industry.

The opinionated diplomat in a reply to an interview Stephanie had on eTV’s The Late Nite Celebrity Show with Eddy Blay said;

“No he isn’t. Household name in the UK”? I can’t think of a single friend or relative of mine in London who has ever mentioned or even heard of Stonebwoy, sorry.”

During an interview with Eddie Blay on eTV Ghana: Late Night Celebrity Show, Stephanie Benson said the ‘Bawasaaba’ hitmaker is leading the pack in the UK.

“Stonebwoy is big in the UK, everybody knows about him there but the others are not so known there. I went for my radio tour just before I came with the song ‘One More’, and a couple of my songs ‘Goodbye and ‘Good Feeling’ and everybody was asking me do you know Stonebwoy and said yes!,” Stephanie Benson said.

“I mean he and Mr Eazi are pretty much the only two acts they know in my ‘circle’ and not the Ghanaian circle because they know a lot of other acts obviously, but over there it was just Stonebwoy and I was thinking wow and actually M.anifest also. I did not mention Fuse ODG because obviously he is a worldwide brand,” she added.

Jon also replied another Twitter user:

This will come as another jab from Stephanie Benson to the Shatta Movement president after claiming mid-last year that she’ll never call the ‘Taking Over’ hitmaker for collaboration because she doesn’t consider him a great singer.
