To all in the Ghanaian Dancehall and music circuit he is known as Stonebwoy Burniton.  Outdoored  Livingstone E. Satekla, he hails from the Volta region of Ghana as the 4th child of 7 siblings born on saturday 5march 1988.   He realised his talents and abilities as a lyricist and script writer at an early age, remembering writing and acting drama pieces as far back as fourth year in primary school.

Stonebwoy Burniton

Since then he has never stopped singing both songs that he has written and composed and those by artists he is influenced by.  Stonebwoy was introduced to recording his own track nearly a decade ago with a small recording set up that a family member had.  Before and till date, he has spent most of his time composing.  In his first year at Senior High School, he was introduced to a radio DJ/presenter at Adom FM in Tema who at the time was the host of the KASAHARI show.  On this show, upcoming artists would have battles every Saturday night and that is where he came into contact with artists such as Sarkodie, even though they both attended the same Senior High.  Stonebwoy proudly says “I battled my way out every weekend without defeat till date”.

Stonebwoy released his first radio track “Makuma” (My Heart) in his second year at Senior High School and several others later that same year.  By his third year, he had acquired himself a stable underground popularity and was thereby able to release another titled “Empress” which held him up even after leaving school in 2007.  After that, things have happened in quick succession and Stonebwoy started work with S24 studios, the studio responsible for hits from artistes such as Samini, Tic Tac, Kwawkese, Okomfuor Kwaade, Afro Moses, Bukbak to name a few.

There he met Samini in 2008 and clicked.  Alongside other personal running Stonebwoy and Samini still par with Loyalty and friendship.

Stonebwoy has done various collaborations which are popular with artistes like VIP, Samini, Kwawkese, Obrafour, Afro Moses, Blackrasta and many others.  The latest in Stonebwoy’s ventures include the release of 3 tracks from the upcoming “Grade 1” album namely Climax, Push It and Hills and Valley, due out at the beginning of 2012.  Other tracks that will be released on other street tapes (mixtapes) will include like Over N Over, Rudegyal, Pullback, Lighter, Crazy and many more.
