- Dancehall act Stonebwoy has advised the youth to stay off the abuse of tramadol
- He said it was dangerous to abuse drugs and cautioned against being pressurized to succumb to it
Multiple award-winning dancehall artiste and Zylofon Media signee, Stonebwoy, known in real life as Livingstone Etse Satekla has made a passionate appeal and advised Ghanaian youth to refrain from taking illicit drugs.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Accra-based Hitz FM, the artiste lamented that it was difficult for him to understand why some people decided to abuse drugs such as tramadol, codeine, among others just to get high.
Stonebwoy added that tramadol was a drug hence those who believed it gave a euphoric feeling should desist from using the it since it could have deadly consequences.
The ‘People Dey’ singer went on to further advice his colleagues in the music industry to stop advertising such drugs through their music because music was a powerful tool that could influence people into doing a lot of things including taking and abusing hard drugs.
The ‘Hero’ hitmaker said “Even if you abuse water you will die how much more medicine which will have an effect on you? I do stand behind the campaign that the abuse must stop…”
“You don’t have to do it for the hype. We are the ones destroying our lives. I beg them, he pleaded.
Not too long ago, Stonebwoy shared a picture of himself during a surgery he underwent abroad as a way of motivating people not to give up in life.
The dancehall act has a huge following and is reported to be the fiercest rival of his dancehall colleague, Shatta Wale.
He is married to Catherine Satekla, a dentist at the 37 Military Hospital and the couple have a beautiful daughter together.
