The show must go on, it is no secret that MTV's Behind The Story has become a favourite for many South Africans, the honesty and real emotions that are brought to light have shown how vulnerable and human our ZAlebs are. The host with the most, Pearl Thusi, has really done well to connect with her guests on a personal and emotional level, which makes the show even more authentic.

Pearl Thusi will host Ghanaian star, Stonebwoy this Saturday on her show. The Ghanaian dancehall sensation's latest album Anloga Junction was released earlier this year it features our very own Nasty C. The coolest kid in Africa features on the track Bow Down, which is the lead single for the South African market and is already being playlisted on several stations across the country.

Stonebwoy was meant to be in Mzansi for a stop as part of his African tour, however, due to COVID-19 was postponed, but thanks to technology Pearl will be able to video-call him this weekend. Bow Down is a song that pushed Stonebwoy creatively, as this is the first the artist has worked on such a Hip Hop-inspired beat. The record was recorded in Ghana when Nasty C was in the country in April 2018.

On working with Nasty C, Stonebwoy had this to say;

"I didn’t think of a feature before recording the song I had the original theme which was to have bits and pieces of all forms of sounds that will be on the album. So when I created the hip hop afro-beats infused type of one, Nasty C came to mind because his style actually appeals to me when it comes to a sound like that, the song was cooked right in my home in my studio and was a beautiful experience cooking that song and right from the scratch and in two hours we had the song done."

Nasty C is not the only South African artist Stonebwoy has worked with, in 2018 he released Wame with Cassper Nyovest. Stonebwoy on his album Anloga Junction, which hit 10 Million Streams in 10 days also features US singer Keri Hilson amongst more.

We look forward to hearing from this Ghanaian sensation, who has a love for our South African artists and country, he will bring his energy and vigour to the show, which will be complemented by Pearl's frank questions to try and understand what is behind the story of his career and personal life.
