Stonebwoy ready to embark on road safety campaign

Ghanaian dance hall artiste, Livingstone Este Satekla aka Stonebwoy has expressed his willingness to join the fight against motor accidents.

Speaking to Citi TV at the funeral of the late Ebony Reigns on Saturday, he said as a victim of car accident, he would admonish the citizenry to collectively help reduce the menace to the barest minimum.

“Unfortunately, she died by an accident. The same cause that kills almost thousands of people every year and a number of people every day. The same cause that leaves a number of people injured and deformed every time. I am an example of that; I’m accident victim and I’m facing it till now,” he said.

When asked if he had planned of embarking on any campaign to help curb this problem, he said he was ready to use any means available to fight road accidents.

“Why not? Any form that we can advocate and educate the people about road safety, I am ready – and even as I speak now, it is gonna go far and you know we are all involved to make sure that we are all safe on our roads,” he added.

Stonebwoy was once involved in a car accident which claim the life of his twin sibling. The accident rendered him disabled over a period after he finally went through a successful surgery.

Few weeks ago, he donated an amount of GHc 5,000 and other items to patients at the accident ward of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

Already, rapper Sarkodie has composed a song titled ‘Wakeup Call’ to address accidents on Ghanaians roads.

Other people in arts and showbiz have also added their voices to the call since Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng aka Ebony died in a gory motor accident on the Kumasi-Sunyani road last month.
