‘My Accident Was Caused By The State But They Never Helped Me’- Stonebwoy

Stonebwoy has stated in a fresh interview that the accident that has incapacitated him was caused by a state vehicle yet they left him to his fate.

The Dancehall artiste who is one of the most relevant and consistent artistes in Ghana with several local and international awards to his name, disclosed that the ill-fated accident occurred at age 13 when he was travelling to Ashaiman after visiting his uncle with his father and sisters in Accra.

“I clearly remember my mother had prepared waakye and I was planning to eat it after a football match we had planned but sadly, I never got to eat it. A police van caused the accident on our way back from Accra. My accident was caused by the state and that was the last time I was whole,” Stonebwoy told Rev Erskine on Y107.9FM’s Y Leaderboard Series.


He indicated that it was tough recovering from the accident but sadly, “the state did nothing to support me.”

Stonebwoy who had won a visa lottery and was preparing to travel to the States had to lie on his back for two months. “I was the youngest and smallest at the accident ward at Korle Bu. I faced a tough time at the hospital and my mother had to sleep on the floor of Korle Bu for 6 months.”


Stonebwoy added. “My mother was doing her best to make sure I was alright and my siblings were also supportive. It wasn’t easy for me as a young boy who was super active and now, I had to accept the reality that I couldn’t run anymore and I suffered a lot of ridicule

The Bhim Nation President also revealed he had metal plates fixed in his knees and as he described it; “it was not easy for me as I had to hustle through all that as well.”
