Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has said he sometimes dials his late mother’s number and later realises she is not part of the living.
“You just reminded me of the fact that sometimes I pick my phone and dial her number and I am like oh sorry... She was my paddy but we never really got to meet often,” he said in an interview with Kojo Yankson of Joy FM Super Morning Show.
Stonebwoy’s mother kicked the bucket on July 29, 2015 at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra after an unconfirmed ailment.
The late Catherine Satekla, according to reports, was rushed to the hospital for treatment but could not survive. Stonebwoy could not get the chance to share his last words because he was outside the country when the sad incident occurred.
His manager, Blakk Cedi, was reported to have said that his client was not in a good state of mind in the wake of his mother’s death.
“It should have been someone else and not Stonebwoy’s mum. Stone is going crazy and it’s not good for us now. Now that we have a lot to do, we have a lot laid in the pipeline. Stone’s mum is Stone’s everything. When we are out, when we travel to play shows, Stone's mum will call like five times that night just to make sure we are on our way back home,” Cedi told Live FM’s Jay Foley.
“I was washing on Sunday in the morning when I had a call from his sisters that their mom collapsed… She was fine as at Sunday when she was admitted. I went there on Monday to check on her, and she was recovering, I couldn’t go on Tuesday but I was there on Wednesday afternoon until I had to go pick Stonebwoy at the airport. I went to pick Stone at the airport. We just got in and we were told Stone’s mum is gone. The doctors were on her…” Blakk Cedi recounted.
It would be recalled that the 2015 BET Best International Africa Act staged a free concert at Mandela Park, Ashiaman on August 8, in honour of his late mother.
She was buried on September 5, 2015.
