‘Selling Out the O2 Arena Doesn’t Scare Me’ – Stonebwoy Discloses

The "Activate" hitmaker believes that just like his Nigerian counterparts, his music appeals to a massive audience, therefore reaching the capacity of the O2 Arena, which holds 20,000 people, is within his grasp.

Ghanaian Afro-dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, has disclosed that filling the 22,000 capacity at the O2 Arena in London is an achievable feat which does not frighten him in any way possible. 

Speaking in a recent interview on Property FM in Cape Coast, Stonebwoy stated that is highly possible to fill the O2 Arena with the right promotional strategies and huge investment to generate a buzz aimed towards filling the venue. 

The “Activate” hitmaker believes that just like his Nigerian counterparts, his music appeals to a massive audience, therefore reaching the capacity of the O2 Arena, which holds 20,000 people, is within his grasp since he has performed to audiences at bigger venues internationally.

“As for the O2 Arena, it’s a venue that I’ve stepped there before and it’s not scary to fill but it’s just a matter of announcing and doing your promotion for people to come out in their numbers that’s all and it’ll happen,” he said.

“Just last two weeks my brother Davido invited me to perform at his show that’s like 20k capacity at the Madison Square Garden and I also performed at a reggae festival in Austin which is another 20k capacity. So when it comes to capacity we’ve performed a lot at such venues and I’ve even performed at the World Cup in Qatar which is 40k capacity including Summer Jam which is in the thousands of thousands,” he said.

The BET award-winning singer who is known for continuously touring and performing in different countries and Reggae festivals said he is not a novice when it comes to mounting huge stages,  citing his performance with Nigerian Afrobeat Artiste, Davido at the 02 Arena, the last two years.

“Even Ashaiman to the world has a big capacity so when it comes to capacity I’m not new to international platforms and I’ve been on some of the highest stages to ever be climbed. The O2 Arena has over 20k capacity if you remember two years ago Davido invited me on stage and it was beautiful to see people sing back my songs so filling the O2 Arena isn’t impossible at all,” he added. 

Stonebwoy, Usher, SZA, and Sarkodie were among the performers who headlined the Global Citizen Festival in 2022, which took place on September 24 at Accra’s Black Star Square. He was regarded as one of the best performers on the show by both viewers and critics. He was the first Ghanaian to headline the Austin Reggae Festival in Texas earlier this year. 

It can also be recalled that Stonebwoy made history when he filled the Accra Sports Stadium in December 2023, during his Bhim concert show. He also thrilled fans with an electrifying performance at the TGMA Xperience Concert last Saturday in Capecost.
