He also added that the popular sound engineer was also not on drugs but admitted that he was rather addicted to alcohol.

Ras Caleb claimed that Sugar Tone said his present condition had been caused by loneliness and neglect.

The MUSIGA executive said Sugar Tone said he was very aware of the reason for their visit since he was following the development on social media after his video went viral

The well-known music maker is said to have recounted how he made a lot of hit songs but was now living in the shadows.

Ras Caleb mentioned that Sugar Tone was very sane and was aware of all that was happening around him.

The Greater Accra MUSIGA president went on to add that Sugar Tone particularly asked about Shatta Wale.

He, therefore, used it as an opportunity to appeal to Shatta Wale to come to the aid of Sugar Tone before things got out of hand.

Ras Caleb said the entourage that visited Sugar Tone was made up of himself, Trigmatic, Michael Banfo, Mr Derrick, Reggy Zippy and Mark Darlington.

According to Ras Caleb, a web platform has been formed following the visit to solicit ways to assist the once-well-sought-after sound engineer.

The visit was necessitated after a video showing Sugar Tone drunk to stupor and fast asleep in an uncompleted structure went viral online.

Gifty Fornyikpor, a mental health nurse at the Pantang Psychiatric Hospital in Accra, in a phone conversation with said a patient could only be diagnosed with mental health by a health professional.

She added that since Sugar Tone had not been checked into a mental institution, it was not a given to say he had gone mad.

"Sugar Tone cannot be declared mad just on face value if he has not been examined by a health professional. At best, we can say he is addicted to drinking and was found in his state after a hangover set in".

Judging from his recent speech and the fact that he was able to recognize visitors, one can tie his condition to alcoholism and depression and not madness," Gifty said.

Meanwhile, popular media personality Blakk Rasta has spoken following his appearance and participation in the #FixTheCountry demo that was staged in Accra on August 4, 2021.

While speaking on a television show, Blakk Rasta said he was excited over the fact that many celebs did not take part in the demonstration.
