Stonebwoy has said the ghastly accident that has left him incapacitated was actually caused by the state but he was left to his own fate as he battled for his life.
The President of the Bhim Nation said he was 13yrs when the accident occurred while 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 father of two further 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.”
