Stonebwoy’s Epistles of Mama 24-track double album (afrobeats and reggae) has got its released date changed on Itunes with Sean Paul removed from it making the Album now a 23-track Album.
The Album was released on December 12, 2017. However, checks on Itunes indicates that the release date has been changed to June 27, 2018.
It is not clear why his management has done this changes.
However top Entertainment Analyst, David Mawuli of pulse.com.gh has speculated that it could firstly, be a genuine mistake from his management because no sane artiste would change his/her album release date for fun.
Secondly, he might be targeting awards in 2019 with his albums because it has a lot of hits which are dominating charts this year.
But, this will not work. Because the album has already been nominated for awards. It was listed alongside Ebony Reigns “Bonified”, MzVee’s “Daavi” and Sarkodie’s “Highest” for the 2018 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. He lost to the late Ebony Reigns.
Aside from these two reasons, Mawuli cannot tell what the changes were all about.
The album, features a tall list of artistes including Kabaka Pyramid, Sarkodie, Mugeez, Efya, AKA, Praiz and Burna Boy, debuted on the Billboard World Albums Chart in March 2018 and peaked at 13.
The EOM Album was solely made in honour of Stonebwoy’s late mother Catherine Satekla who died on July 29, 2015.
