Stonebwoy’s 5th studio album, Anloga Junction- has already started making waves even before it’s officially unveiled. The much-anticipated album is scheduled to drop on 5th March, a day before Ghana’s Independence celebration.
Why did the Bhim Nation boss give this interesting title to his album? We have the answer right here; as spotted on one of his social media handles.
Anloga Junction is a major junction that connects all Anglo towns and communities. It is the junction that leads to Alakple, the hometown of Stonebwoy.
Alakple is a town in the Keta Municipality of the Volta Region of Ghana. This town is situated along the southeastern part of the Keta Lagoon. The bust of the prominent Africa American boxer George Foreman is planted at the junction along the Anloga and Dabala road. That road leads to Alakple.
Alakple is situated in Anlo, Volta, Ghana, its geographical coordinates are 5° 51′ 0″ North, 0° 53′ 0″ East.
The town is prominent for the historical role it plays in the area. It is the home of the Nyigbla, ‘god of war’ who rode on horseback. The major clan in the town is Ameawo who are the custodians or clan responsible for nugbidodo ‘settling disputes’.
They are also believed to have control of all palm trees in Anloland. As custodians of Torgbi Nyigbla there are many taboos related to their dressing and food. for instance they are forbidden to wear shirts or blouse and sandals within the shrine.
As you can see from the short essay above, Stonebwoy has a very good reason for coming out with such a name for his new album.
