BET Award-winner, Livingstone Satekla aka Stonebwoy during his performance yesterday at an event showered praises R2bees for being our legend and keeping the fire burning before the advent of Afrobeat as they were there before Afrobeat.

According to Stonebwoy, R2bees being there before Afrobeat is the truth and no one can dispute that and that makes them our legend because they have been serving us some great music before most of our favorites emerged.

Stonebwoy while performing with them at their event took the opportunity to honor them on stage and let all those present and watching know that R2bees are our legends because they were there even before Afrobeat.

Stonebwoy also thanked them for keeping the fire burning before they all emerged then brought in Afrobeat to make the Ghanaian music diverse which we all are enjoying today and it’s a good thing Stonebwoy has honored them.

R2BEES REVEALS WHY THEY DON’T GRANT INTERVIEWS

Celebrated Ghanaian music group R2Bees, have explained what informed their decision not to grant both radio and television interviews.

You will attest to the fact R2Bees have not been on most radio and television platforms for several years now although they arere still actively going about their music businesses.

However, in a recent interview with Joy FM’S Doreen Avio, they group made up of Mugeez and Omar Sterling stated that it was their decision not to work with the media in promoting their works.

According to the “Walaahi” hitmakers, they actively granted interviews during the early stages of their music career.

However, they stopped granting interviews after they discovered that some media houses are in for the clout and their agendas but not to promote them.

They added that the journalists then alter.ed their words and took advantage of them.

“The only thing we know how to do is sing and that when we get the mic but for granting interviews, we don’t do that anymore because some journalist used to clout chase,” they told Joy TV.

We used to grant interviews when we were coming up, and it’s not like we have been like this since, but we realised that some interviews we used to grant back then had the journalist taking advantage of us because negativity sells, and they try to twist our words.”

Their fans and Ghanaians alike have complained about their absence in traditional and social media.

Omar Sterling and Mugeez spoke at the album launch and listening session of their latest studio album, “Back 2 Basics” in Accra.
