[Video] “I wanted to create a hit song for Maccasio but Stonebwoy prevented me”, Bluebeats Claims

Tamale-based producer Mahmowas Fowaana popularly known as BlueBeats recently accused reggae dancehall artist Stonebwoy of sabotaging a collaboration between Maccasio and himself.


In an interview with Majority FM, BlueBeats claimed he had planned to create an original beat in his studio that would give Maccasio his “biggest hit song ever.” However, Stonebwoy allegedly declined that beat and instead chose an existing reggae one that was already in BlueBeats’ studio.


BlueBeats felt Stonebwoy prevented him from working with Maccasio on what could have been a chart-topping song using his own new beat. He believes Stonebwoy wanted full control over the creative direction and selfishly pushed for an old beat rather than BlueBeats’ new original one.


The accusations sparked a reaction from Majority FM’s panelists, who agreed Stonebwoy acted selfishly if actually denied Maccasio the chance to work with BlueBeats’ new beat. They felt an artist of Stonebwoy’s stature should not limit the opportunities of others in the industry.


Stonebwoy is yet to publicly address the allegations. The full story remains unclear, as BlueBeats’ interview only provided one perspective. Stonebwoy may have had reasonable motives for choosing the existing beat. Until both sides are heard, it’s difficult to make a fair judgement.


Nonetheless, the controversy has fueled debate about artistic freedom versus gatekeeping and integrity in Ghana’s music scene.
