Stonebwoy has stated that the heinous event that has rendered him paralyzed was inflicted by the state, but he was left to his own fate while he fought for his life.
According to the President of the Bhim Nation, he was 13 years old when the disaster occurred when he was traveling to Ashaiman after visiting his uncle in Accra with his father and sisters.
“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 stated that it was difficult for him to recuperate from the injury, but regrettably, “the state did nothing to help me.”
Stonebwoy, who had won a visa lottery and was about to fly to the United States, was forced 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.”
“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
