Dancehall star Stonebwoy has for the first time narrated precisely everything that happened in the accident which crippled him.
Stonebwoy, speaking with Nana Ama McBrown on her show Saturday night, for the first time went into immense detail about the accident and how it affected him.
Stonebwoy and his family were involved in an accident in 2003 which led to him having a limp in his leg for years after – until he recently operated on it to fix it.
Speaking with McBrown, Stonebwoy revealed there were four of them in the vehicle which had the accident – himself, his brother, father and sister.
“We were driving from Accra to Ashaiman and we stopped on the shoulders of the road to urinate. When we were about set off for Ashaiman, all that we realised was that a car which was on two lanes driving from the Motorway towards Accra somersaulted and crashed our car,” Stonebwoy said.
“It was my father, my sister, brother and me in the car. I was rushed to the 37 Hospital before they took me to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. I was hospitalised for six months.
“If we were abroad I would have been enjoying huge sums of money from the insurance because it was a police car which crashed us”.
Stonebwoy said he got his stiff leg which made him limp due to the accident but his mum refused to allow him to undergo any surgery.
“The accident affected my leg. However, my mum advised me not to undergo any operation for fear of worsening the situation. She used to say when I gave birth to you, you weren’t like this. For the respect I had for her I decided not to do anything about it.
“Just after she passed away, I decided to operate on my leg. They implanted metal in my leg and because of that, I can now stretch my leg. Unlike before I could not stretch my leg. It was stiff.” the dancehall artist added.
