Stonebwoy in the Ghanaian music scene has over the years been that artiste who always had tough skin against all odds. His car accident induced leg injury was one of those, but he managed to rise above it so easily. There were other strifes he had to deal with as a musician, and it seems in all of those he always had the touch skin to do so. No wonder he now calls himself the tough seed(Tuffseed).
Meanwhile, many were those who according to him, took his toughness for arrogance, which he seriously debunked. However, in his most recent interview on UTV’s United Showbiz with Nana Ama McBrown, Stonebwoy hinted at how he developed that tough skin.
The African dancehall first-ever BET award winner was answering questions on how his early childhood days were and how his musical journey began. He disclosed:
Translated from Twi “…my father was such a serious disciplinarian. The way my dad disciplines children wasn’t only known in our house, but the entire Ashaiman locality knew about it”
“…that was how I grew up. That is why I have such a spotless level of discipline and obedience” “other parents used to call my dad to come and beat their wards” “…they used to call him Old Soldier. If your child is stubborn, just call him to come and discipline him” Stonebwoy continued.
So from Stonebwoy’s submission, one could only imagine how his father used to beat him. Which must have made him become tough at a point. However, he further noted that that kind of discipline from his father resulted in how disciplined and obedient he is now.
