Reminiscing the times he interacted with Manu Dibango, Rockstone said that he was indebted to the legend whose sounds influenced his early Hiplife works.

“Jay Z sampled his (Manu Dibango) song and he went out for his money but when I used it, he said, for me it’s free,” he added.

Rockstone added that the last time he had seen the Jazz legend was at AFRIMA and was met with warmth.
“My heart goes out to his family…we are his family we all grew up to his music. For you who don’t know him, you might wanna look him out,” Reggie said.
