Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has stated that winning the 2015 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards came to him as a surprise.

According to Stonebwoy, he was surprised not because he did not deserve the award but the news hit him hard that he was highly elated.

“It was a surprise to me but I wasn’t belittled neither was I intimidated. First and foremost, I tend to derive the joy and like the level that brings to me as an artiste…. It was a surprise to me not to say I don’t deserve it but you know that this is genuine so it puts a punch on your emotions. That was the type of surprise. It was well deserved,” he said in an interview with NYDJ on Behind the Move.
