Legendary Bob Marley drops a Stonebwoy-assisted single ‘’Buffalo Soldier” off posthumous album ‘’Africa Unite”: Listen

The late reggae legend Bob Marley and Ghanaian dancehall sensation Stonebwoy have united on a monumental collaboration, “Buffalo Soldier.”

The iconic track, originally released by Bob Marley in 1983, has been reimagined and revitalized with The Ghanaian BET award-winner and GRAMMY nominee’s contemporary flair, resulting in a harmonious blend of reggae and dancehall rhythms.

“Buffalo Soldier,” featured in the album “Africa Unite,” carries profound historical significance. The song pays homage to the brave African-American soldiers who fought valiantly during the late 1800s, particularly the 10th Cavalry Regiment, known as the Buffalo Soldiers. These soldiers, despite facing adversity and discrimination, played a pivotal role in the American West, proving their dedication, courage, and resilience.

In this new rendition, Stonebwoy’s unmistakable vocals blend effortlessly with Bob Marley’s timeless lyrics, producing a captivating fusion that honors the legacy of reggae while bridging the gap between continents. The track showcases Stonebwoy’s admiration for Bob Marley’s pioneering work and serves as a powerful tribute to the enduring impact of the reggae icon’s message of unity, social consciousness, and liberation.

The music industry was equally effusive in their praise, hailing “Buffalo Soldier” as a testament to the unifying power of music. Top executives and record label CEOs acknowledged the significance of bringing together two musical luminaries in “Africa Unite.” They commended Stonebwoy’s artistry and his ability to seamlessly complement Bob Marley’s distinctive style, breathing new life into a song that has touched millions for decades.
