8. Stonebwoy B

Listening to Stonewboy Burniton โ€”ย Stonebwoy B for short โ€” you might initially mistake him for a Jamaican. Like many of the other dancehall specialists in Ghana, he accents his lyrics with โ€˜nuff Jamaican patoisโ€”ย not exactly a stretch, of course, considering the dialectโ€™s roots in West Africa. After finding considerable success at home and even winning the Best International Act honors at last yearโ€™s BET Awards, Stonebwoyโ€™s been inching his way into the Caribbean market with some heavyweight collaborations, including the 2016 Carnival single โ€œBlock the Roadโ€ with Fay-Ann Lyons, and โ€œTalk To Meโ€ featuring Kranium.
