After the week-long outburst on social media about a partial judgment by showbiz agenda pundits on his version of JMJs Riddim of the gods, Jupitar took the opportunity to redeem himself and call for a lyrical battle with Stonebwoy.
As some are anticipating a response or an acceptance to the challenge, director of Editorial at Muse Africa, Nana Yaw Wiredu has posited that “Stonebwoy will never reply Jupitar.” Giving strong points to support his opinion.
To him, in the dancehall fraternity, “you go after the biggest fish, you hit him hard until he drops” citing an example with Samini and Shatta Wale’s case, saying that “Samini, unfortunately, responded to Wale and the table over overturned” suggesting that it accounted to Shatta’s hype at the time. He added that “Stone is currently above Jupitar, and will never respond because even though he can stand him, it will be a way to allow another conversation that he’s not ready for.”
Furthermore, Stonebwoy at his recent press meeting announced the release of his album, North American tour, and his Bhim shop, to Nana Yaw, these are also reasons why he will not respond to Jupitar’s call as he believes that it may be a distraction to him “especially now that he’s about to drop an album, go on his North America tour, play the O2 and will not want to lose concentration on that” he explained.
Another major point he raised to solidify his opinion was that “Stone is also currently comfortable with his status in the Ghanaian music industry and might want to go more without wasting time on one who hasn’t really been active in the music industry for some time and will not have that back to back with him” stressing that “Should things not go well for him, Jupitar may overtake him.” He coagulated his point stating that “It’s like Waley and Wizkid when Shatta was throwing at Wizkid, Wizkid refused to respond because where he is sitting, if he tries responding and Waley overtakes him, that’s the end”
Using these as a case study, he advised artists “to be careful when doing stuff like that” emphasizing that “Stone will never respond.”
However, he beseeched with JMJ to allow Jupitar to redeem himself with a redo of the Riddim though he thinks “it’s not necessary considering his prowess with money box as a case study.” He gave an alternative solution to Jupitar saying that he should “forget Riddim drop a banger and go to Canada.”
