Ghanaian dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has refuted a popular opinion that Ashaiman is a crime-ridden town with notorious residents.
The Bhim Nation boss questioned the reasoning behind tagging his “home grounds” as a crime-ridden community when there’s never been a bank robbery there.
He was speaking on security measures being put in place to ensure the safety of everyone attending his ‘Ashaiman to the World’ festival happening on Saturday.
In an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra 100.5 FM’s mid-morning show ‘Ayekoo Ayekoo’ Thursday, Stonebwoy said:
“Someone will say, as for Ashaiman, it’s full of thieves and other criminals but that’s you holding on to the old perception. If it were so, [ask yourself] have you ever heard, excuse me to say, there’s been a bank robbery in Ashaiman? They say we are strong-willed and unruly but have you heard of such a thing before?”
“Ashaiman is a place you can live without your parents and know that the community is looking out for you. I’m telling you. That’s where I grew up.”
“It’s one of the places where you know the town is your mother and your father because everybody is surviving over there,” he remarked.
