According to him, despite your talent and hard work, musicians including himself, have suffered a great deal from what he termed as tribalism in the industry.

This comes after Joy Prime made a post promoting Stonewboy for a show in Jamaica.

“Reggae Dancehall act @stonebwoy is billed to perform in Jamaica this weekend. The show dubbed Rebel Salute: The Preservation Of Reggae will host some of the biggest reggae acts all across the world. Stonebwoy is the only Ghanaian billed for the event,” Joy Prime’s tweet read.
