Africa’s most revered dancehall act Stonebwoy has been honoured by Audiomack after he became the first Ghanaian artist to surpass over 100 million streams on the platform.
In recognition of this achievement, a plaque was presented to Stonebwoy by Audiomack’s vice president of marketing and brand strategy, Jason Johnson, and director of brand and media partnerships Charlotte Bwana at the 2022 Afrochella Festival this week in Accra where he was a headline act.
An Afropop/dancehall veteran, Stonebwoy officially signed on to Audiomack in 2019. Within 21 months, he has accrued over 380 000 total subscribers, the most by a Ghanaian artist, and surpassed 680 000 monthly listeners.
His latest feat arrives two years after he set a record with his fourth studio album Anloga Junction, which received the most streams for a Ghanaian album. The project became not only the most streamed Ghanaian album but also the first to receive 10 million streams on Audiomack.
The following year, the artist became the first Ghanaian musician to reach 100 million streams on the site for his hit single 1Gad.
“This is for everyone who streamed my music, God’s blessings to you all,” Stonebwoy said. “I promise you that next year, I am going to drop an album.”
Audiomack, which launched in 2012, currently reaches more than 20 million monthly users globally. As of January 2021, Audiomack was the top-ranked music streaming app on Apple’s iOS in Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal, and Kenya.
