Yesterday at the official opening of the BHIM Shop at Ashaiman in Accra, Ghanaian Dancehall and Afropop multiple award winning artiste ‘Stonebwoy’, auctioned the first set of his much anticipated BHIM Clothing for a sum of Ghc 17,000.00. A fan who revealed herself as ‘She Loves BHIM’, single handedly purchased 2 sets of sports suit at Ghc 5000.00 each and a casual T-shirt at Ghc 2000.00. Other purchase were made by other guests which amounted to the total figure of Ghc 17,000.00. Stonebwoy expressed his gratitude and stated that the BHIM shop is here to stay and so should be supported. The BHIM shop follows a promise made by Stonebwoy earlier this year to make available quality clothing for his fans and the public.
In an exclusive interview with BET Award winner ‘Stonebwoy’, he stated that he did not set out to be a fashion designer nevertheless, he is very hopeful that the BHIM Shop will grow. “This clothe brand of mine is actually a symbol that is attached to my career and myself. I didn’t get up to produce clothes to sell; I’m a musician and a philanthropist and this comes with it. But, this is also something I have always planned to do; that is to leave a mark on the soil which I grew up. So, it is not competition motivated even though it has to run as a business. Nevertheless, it will definitely grow just like how I started my career in Ghana and now I’m taking it to the world”, he explained.
The prices of the clothing have been set at affordable rates in order for the average Ghanaian to be able to get their hands on BHIM Clothing and accessories. The BHIM Shop is located in Ashaiman close to the famous ‘Sakasaka’ Park that was the host grounds for the annual ‘Ashaiman to the World’ concert.
