“What readily comes to mind upon receiving this plaque is this huge sense of gratitude. Once upon a time, it was just but a dream to do music and now realising the dream, I am grateful that people are also recognising the need to celebrate other people for their achievements. I am extremely grateful to my fans for playing a huge part in my story and also to Boomplay for being an enabler of this music space so that artists can realise their dreams,” Stonebwoy intimated.
Commenting on Stonebwoy joining the Boomplay Golden Club, Elizabeth Ntiamoah-Quarshie, General Manager of Boomplay Ghana, said “On the occasion where we celebrate Stonebwoy’s Golden Club feat, I must say we are proud of his accomplishments because as much as we are always part of the success stories of artists, Stonebwoy is part of our success story here in Ghana.
