Award-winning Reggae/Dancehall artist, Stonebwoy has revealed that his recent attacks on Shatta Wale at his album release party was nothing but words of inspiration to the youth.

At his album release party at the Polo Beach club on Friday, April, 28th, Stonebwoy was heard ranting in a video to his fans and guests present.

“Fuck anybody who say they’re the dancehall king. Their mother,” Stonebwoy is heard saying in the video…We’ve been playing a lot so you people are not taking us serious. Do you know how much I put into this? 45 collaborations from Jamaicans, Billboard, grammy what are you talking about?,” he adds.

However, in a new interview, Stonebwoy has revealed that his comments were not directed to Shatta Wale as many think, but a moment of passion meant to inspire the youth who were present.

“In the heat of the moment, I was overwhelmed and wanted to inspire the young artists who were present and were watching me perform that they did not have to look up to anyone as the king of dancehall since there is a lot of work to do”, Stonebwoy told Nana Romeo on Accra FM.
