Livingstone Etse Satekla, best known by his stage name Stonebwoy, made history by describing African music dynamics and the contradiction that “African males prefer to govern” on New York's Breakfast Club radio show.
The interviewers were equally interested in validating reports about how much money African men spend on their wives during the discussion on the future of African music and other topics.
In a Ghanaian cultural environment, Stonebwoy voiced his ideas as an African guy who had grown up in Africa. “I believe it's a product of our society and upbringing,” he remarked. You must take care of the house, just as you must be the man of the house. And so, that also affects how we treat our women.
African males, according to Stonebwoy, want to be in charge and, to some extent, dominate their female partners. However, he noted that because he opposes abuse, this form of control is not abuse. Instead, he described feminine women as subservient and polite, and he finds them attractive.
