I Need To Listen To The Right Stuff; Kudus On Attachment To Stonebwoy Music

Ghana International and Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus has described Stonebwoy’s songs as “spiritual” and upliftment for his soul.

The footballer is known for being attached to songs by the Ghanaian Afropop, dancehall and reggae musician and promoting his songs among his teammates.

In August 2020, a video of Kudus and another teammate jamming to Stonebwoy’s ‘Putuu’ song in a dressing room went viral.

He is also on record to have said Stonebwoy is popular among his teammates.

In Amsterdam during an interview with Ajax’s media team this week, Kudus noted that the life of footballers centred on music and therefore there is the need to listen to the “right” songs.

80% of our football life journeys include music. When we travel for games in the flight, music, flights, music, when in the dressing room before games music… half time we listen to Bob Marley songs. I need to listen to the right stuff that can touch me and uplift my soul and motivate me in the work that I do.”

He also indicated that he relates to the lyrics which he described as “spiritual”.

I just relate to them spiritually and most of them on how it can impact myself.”

His attachment to songs by the dancehall artiste began during an injury when he had to spend much time in a rehab centre.

Asked how he does that with music, Stonebwoy said, “Over the years, I write, I compose, I arrange, I record so I understand the type of energy, the synergy that the beat has with the lyrics”.

Stonebwoy made the journey to Amsterdam for the player to listen to songs on his new album titled 5th Dimension scheduled to be released on Friday, April 28.
