The Universal Music Group owns the multinational Def Jam Recordings record label in the United States. With superstars like Jay-Z, DMX, Ja Rule, Method Man & Redman, Ludacris, Rihanna, Jeezy, and the inimitable Kanye West, Def Jam established its dominance over the next two decades.

For more than 35 years, it has been the cutting edge of hip-hop music.

Stonebwoy's debut single, "Therapy," was released on May 3 by Def Jam Africa.

The song is from his upcoming album, Album 5. On May 13, the accompanying video is due. Stonebwoy from Ghana has been added to Def Jam Africa by Def Jam Recordings of Universal Music Group (UMG).

Full List of Winners Sipho Dlamini, CEO of UMG in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa, referred to Stonebwoy as "a true African talent" who "works to lift the heart and spirit of those around him while producing fresh sounds that keep blowing the world away." Stonebwoy was also referred to as "a true African talent." We anticipate what 2022 will bring for him.

Tunji Balogun, chairman and CEO of Def Jam, stated, "I'm excited to welcome Stonebwoy to the Def Jam Family in partnership with Sipho and 0207."

“As we continue to strengthen our musical bond in important markets like Africa and the UK, it will be dynamic, talented artists like Stonebwoy that will lead the way,” he added. "The Def Jam brand is recognized all over the world as a stamp of excellence in black music."

Two years ago, Def Jam began operations in Johannesburg and Lagos, both in Africa. Stogie T, Cassper Nyovest, Nadia Nakai, Nasty C, Tshego, Tellaman, Ricky Tyler, Larry Gaaga, and Vector are among its African signees.

Stonebwoy is an award-winning African artist and is one of Ghana’s most pertinent stars, says UMG.

He released his new single, Therapy, on May 3 via Def Jam Recordings, 0207 Def Jam and Def Jam Africa, supported by UMG labels around the world.
