Ghanaian Dancehall and Afropop  artist Livingstone Etse Satekla, better known by his stage name Stonebwoy has reacted to the viral argument on social media comparing two Ghanaian footballers, Michael Essien and Thomas Party.

In an interview with Atinka TV, Stonebwoy described the comparison as disrespectful and that he doesn’t think even Thomas Partey endorses such a comparison.

The dancehall artist cautioned Ghanaians to stop comparing Thomas Partey to Michael Essien in order not to pit them against each other.

Some football-loving Ghanaian put up posts on social media to compare Thomas Partey and Michael Essien and this has triggered a wild debate in the country.

Thomas Teye Partey, is a Ghanaian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Spanish club Atlético Madrid and the Ghana national team. He has spent most of his career with Atlético Madrid, making over 150 competitive appearances and Michael Kojo Essien is also Ghanaian professional footballer who plays for Sabail in the Azerbaijan Premier League as a midfielder.


I don’t think Thomas Partey endorse this disrespect. Ghanaians like this arguments because it gives them happiness but Essien is a legend and I’m sure Thomas Partey was inspired by people like Michael Essien. People shouldn’t say it for it to seem Partey is the one behind it. I know Partey very well, he is humble and respectful and I don’t think he will approve of this. Essien is a senior man and Partey is doing his part and representing us. So let us not compare the two”.
