There are various arguments going on in offices, social media and on the streets about the recent attack on Afro Pop singer Kelvin Boy in Ashaiman by Chain God, a former bodyguard of multiple award winning dance hall artiste Stonebwoy.
Some music fans believe that the street soldiers in Ashaiman have no right or whatsoever to stop Kelvin Boy from playing gigs or engaging in business deals in that community and that the police should deal with these boys. I agree to this point raised by some section of the public because as a journalist, I believe that citizens should not, for any reason take the laws into their own hands to cause violence or intimidate others.
Attitudes like that should not be encouraged on any day. “But believe you me”, that is not the only way to iron out this issue between the street soldiers and Kelvin Boy. In as much as we all agree that people should not take the law into their hands to intimidate others, there are some street “codes” we must also always consider in making such conclusions.
There’s a “life” code in every ghetho and on every streets of Accra that street soldiers expect every street person to know. Truth is, Kelvin Boy in his feud with Stonebwoy disrespected the people of Ashaiman and broke these codes. Disrespecting the “Ashaiman To The World” concert in an interview on such a big platform as Sammy Flex’s “Showbiz Agenda” on Zylofon 102.1 FM was not only a disrespect to Stonebwoy but indeed an insult to the street soldiers of Ashaiman… and the viral video of the attacker, Chain God confirms this.
Let me suggest these three things to Kelvinbwoy and his team and trust me, if these things are done, Kelvin can even host his own concert in Ashaiman in peace.
1. Kelvin should find a platform and apologize to the entire Ashaiman community.
2. Kelvin Boy should stop disrespecting Stonebwoy in his interviews as well as the innuendo tweets.
3. Kelvin Boy should seek for the blessings of the chiefs and street soldiers of Ashaiman. Trust me, if these three things are done, there will be peace and the artiste will win many hearts in the community.
All the above codes mentioned have also been captured in a video discussion with Sammy Flex below. Watch the full video for more information.
