Stonebwoy Signs with Def Jam

Stonebwoy, Ghanaian Afropop, dancehall, and reggae artist, Stonebwoy, has secured a global agreement with Universal Music Group's label subsidiaries Def Jam Recordings, 0207 Def Jam, and Def Jam Africa.

Def Jam Africa, which launched in 2020, will represent his music throughout Africa, while Def Jam Recordings will be his label home in the United States.

Stonebwoy will be supported in the UK by 0207 Def Jam, the flagship Universal Music UK label that selected Ghanaian London-born twin brothers Alec and Alex Boateng as Co-Presidents in 2020.

According to the Boatengs, "Stonebwoy is one of the great Ghanaian based modern music artists and ambassadors. The opportunity to amplify his outstanding talent alongside Sipho, Def Jam Africa and Tunji with Def Jam Recordings is very exciting, especially him becoming a part of our world class Def Jam artist family. Hopefully this is the first of many more collaborative projects to come."

Stonebwoy has worked with international artists Trey Songz, Khalia, Etana, Sean Paul, Keri Wilson, Alpha Blondie, Chivv, Burna Boy, and others. He is one of Africa's most famous artists on social media, with over 7 million followers across Instagram and Facebook.
