Ghana’s very own Stonebwoy has revealed that he once sold kerosene with his sisters at Ashaiman near Accra.
According to him, his mother was a trader at Ashaiman when he was growing up.
“Ashaiman is a very beautiful place in the sense that, it is diverse in culture, ethnicity, whereby, you have the Ashanti the Northerners, especially the Ewes because it is closer to the Volta Region”, Stonebwoy told Accra-based Citi TV.
He continued that: “If you lived in Ashaiman or you grew up in Ashaiman, you have the tendency to be tough. I sold [Kerosene] too. One time, I followed my sisters to sell Kerosene.
“Anybody who knows me knows that in my house we sold water to the area and my daddy actually had a corn mill. I could, I would operate. So, sometimes I’m there and I’m grinding the maize, sometimes, I go back and I pound the cassava. I actually want to close from school early so I can go and help out.”
As a reminder, Stonebwoy born Livingstone Etse Satekla, a Ghanaian Afropop, dance hall and reggae musician. He is the CEO of Burniton Music Group. He won the Best International Act: Africa category at the 2015 BET Awards and Artist of the Year at the 2015 Ghana Music Awards.
