“Stonebwoy is in a league of his own. His genre-blending style has resonated with millions of fans around the globe and he’s helped shine a light on the rich and vibrant sounds coming out of Africa,” said Cat Kreidich, President, ADA Worldwide.

Cat Kreidich continued that:

Stonebwoy’s ‘OverLord’ Has A Unique Inspiration Behind It!

He made a huge mark, with his 2017 album ‘Epistles of Mama’ making him the first-ever Ghanaian artist to land on the Billboard World Albums chart and his 2023 album 5th Dimension debuting in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums chart.

His hit single “Blessing” garnered over one million views on YouTube within 24 hours of its debut, making him the quickest Ghanaian artist to achieve that milestone on the platform. He also recently became the first Ghanaian artist to rack up 100 million streams on Audiomack.

The multiple award winning Stonebwoy has been featured top Jamaican acts including on Jamaican reggae band Morgan Heritage’s Grammy-nominated album Avrakedabra. His long list of collaborators also includes heavyweights such as Burna Boy, Stormzy, Keri Hilson, Sean Paul, Trey Songz, and more.

The deal marks a continuation of growth for ADA in the African music space following active partnerships with Africa’s leading digital music distribution company Africori and Nigeria’s most influential independent record label Chocolate City, among others.
