The Boomplay Golden Club is an exclusive club reserved for artists who have achieved exceptional streaming numbers on the platform.

The accomplishment arrives a few weeks after his fifth studio album, “5Th Dimension,” was published via Universal Music Group and DefJam Recordings. The album has surpassed 20 million streams on Boomplay.
Reaching over 100 million career streams on Boomplay is a significant milestone that showcases Stonebwoy’s widespread appeal. It also further solidifies Stonebwoy’s status as one of Africa’s most celebrated and influential musicians, pioneering the afrodancehall genre into mainstream success. His anthems such as Nominate,” featuring American artist Keri Hilson, Activate,” with Nigerian superstar Davido, and Putuu,” have all contributed to his remarkable streaming success. These tracks have not only dominated charts across Africa but have also garnered international recognition.
Boomplay, Africa’s leading music streaming service, has recognized Stonebwoy’s exceptional talent and the immense popularity of his music, which has resonated with fans across the continent and beyond. With his distinctive sound and energetic performances, he has consistently delivered captivating hits that have amassed a massive following. Known for his unique fusion of reggae, dancehall, and afrobeats, Stonebwoy has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the global music scene. His lyrical prowess, infectious melodies, and socially conscious themes have struck a chord with listeners, earning him critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base.
Stonebwoy, born Livingstone Etse Satekla, was the first major artist to join Boomplay when the company launched in Ghana in 2018, and for the first three years was the most streamed artist on the platform. The musician, who fuses Afro-pop, dancehall and reggae, has remained one of Ghana’s leading names in music since 2012. In December last year, Stonebwoy was honoured by rival DSP Audiomack after he became the first Ghanaian artist to surpass over 100 million streams on the platform.
Meanwhile, Stonebwoy is set to embark on a North American and Canada tour in support of his ground-breaking “5th Dimension” album, which made an impressive debut, entering the Billboard Reggae Album Chart at No. 8.
Dubbed the “5Th Dimension” Tour, the 12-date trek will take him from his native Ghana to North America from July 15 to August, bringing his vibrant and energetic performances to audiences across the region and his infectious energy and musical prowess to fans in North America. He will also head to Europe later this year for a brief UK tour with shows in Manchester at Canvas on October 26, Birmingham at O2 Academy 2 on October 27, and London at the Electric Brixton on October 29.
On the road, Stonebwoy will be promoting his “5Th Dimension” record, which includes “Manodzi” (which features multi-GRAMMY award-winner Angelique Lidjo), “Life & Money” (which features English rap heavyweight Stormzy), and “Into The Future”.
