Winner of MTN Hitmaker Season 7 and new BHIM Nation signee, Okailey Verse, has said that her mentor, Stonebwoy is every honest, upfront and a very simple guy.
“It’s fun working with this man [Stonebwoy]… he is down to earth, I have never met anybody like him before, he will let you know this is what you should do and this is what you should not do, he will tell you the truth, he will be honest with you, he is raw like that, he is very plain,” she said in an interview on Accra-based Hitz FM.
OV noted that Stonebwoy has a lot of wisdom and knowledge when it comes to music and that she’ll be ready to be lectured by him.
And if in anyway Stonebwoy scolds her, she’ll not take it to heart because she knows he simply want her good.
“He is a big person, he is very knowledgeable and so if he tells me stuffs like that, I will really need to learn hard. I remember I was doing a particular song with him, it wasn’t ‘Want Me’ but a particular song and I remember my verse, I got a few melodies I had to fix certain lyrics in it and he was like, ‘what you said here, does it make sense …?”
The reigning “ruler of the mic” added that she believes she is good enough hence the opportunity to work with Stonebwoy’s record label, Burnington Music Group (BMG) and that if Stonebwoy should scold her, that means she has to work extra hard.
“If he tells me that I’m not good enough, it means I have to work hard because if I’m with him, I don’t think he will pick somebody who is not good enough…if he tells me that, it means I need to work hard. (or I might be sleeping),” she said.
OV however, noted that one needs to put up his/her thinking caps to work with Stonebwoy, saying, “You would have to think when you are working with him.”
