Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla, aka Stonebwoy has reacted to yesterday’s accident that occurred at Ashaiman market, in the Ashaiman Municipality of the Greater Accra region.
According to the musician, Ghanaians should not blame the accident on superstition but rather pay attention to the increasing negligence and indiscipline on the roads.
In a Facebook post, the “Bawasaaba” hitmaker mourned the dead and wished the injured a speedy recovery.

God is the author and finisher of our fate… But these deaths and accidents that leave us “disabled” is not from him! Let religion and superstition take some breath…
Look what happened in my city Ashaiman. A loaded truck runs into market women at Ashaiman traffic. Killing some and leaving some wounded, Driver-: break failure. Does this really justify the killing and wounding of other people’s mothers and relatives? Wait But did the driver actually mean to kill though?
I know the struggle of women especially traders in the market hustle tirelessly to fend for their homes. But
1• What if our market women stopped coming into the streets?
2• What if they occupied and stayed in the market places, purposely made for them to sell so that buyers go to them if they need anything ?
The market places may not be able to accommodate the increasing number of women venturing into trade, but is it worth risking their lives by the road side?
Ashaiman as densely populated as it is, still has land for modern market place to be constructed anyway.
Not to even talk about poor state of vehicles on our roads;
3• the trucks road worthiness…
4• the trucks Insurance and the rest…..
5• the ambulances that will get to the scene early enough to save some of the victims while they transport them to hospitals
6• are there enough Beds in the hospitals to admit victims….?
So on and so forth…..
We the people are the Government. No one person can make life easier for us without our input…
Our mindset and the way we see and think about things that really matter…
Don’t you think we are losing too many people prematurely because of our own indiscipline?
I know I was only expected to post the video and write captions Like
How about #LetsWiseUp #AndStopKillingEachOther
Get well soon those who obtained wounds
And May their souls Rest In Peace those who passed on… my condolences to their families…
