You need to connect to grow – Stonebwoy
Stonebwoy, High flying Ghanaian dancehall artist has told Berla Mundi in an interview how his hard work over the years has been key to helping him get to where he is
Here’s what Stonebwoy had this to say “It didn’t take me two minutes, or I didn’t just fly to New York to get into that studio. I’ve been working over the past years, ready for opportunities, and when you’re prepared, when any opportunity comes, you’re overqualified. Continue to work while they are not watching, and by the time they turn an eye on you, you’ll be overqualified, and that’s how you get to wherever you’re going within a twinkle of an eye to some people, but they would not remember that you put in the work”
He also added that networking came at no cheap cost but one that is worth it “Stonebwoy has been opening doors. Networking is expensive, and it’s not cheap no matter at what level it is. You have to put in the resources. Whatever the resource be, financial resources, however, you want to describe the resource, it’s expensive. The thing is again I want to bring the thing about the mindset. Naturally, where I come from, you’ll hear a thing like “)ye aho she sh3,” but you need to get out of that kind of mindset. It’s called networking; you need to connect to grow. These are simple nuggets we play with”
Stonebwoy also advised his colleagues to not be limited by the fears of what society would say regardless as it is important to go out there and meet new opportunities that won’t come to you unless you make a conscious effort in creating them
