In other news, multiple award-winning dancehall musician, Livingstone Etse Satekla, also known as Stonebwoy has been mocked on social media after the well-known fashion brand, Tommy Hilfiger announced the Nigerian Icon, Wizkid as their new brand ambassador.
This comes after Stonebwoy was reported to have met with the CEO of the brand and began wearing the brand, hoping to secure a deal with the brand but he was snubbed for another artiste.
Well, the brand made the list of their new brand ambassadors public but it appears that the dancehall maestro was absent as Wizkid who never wore the brand prior to the deal bagged a deal with the brand.
