Rockstone: Being accused of stealing a car still breaks my heart

The hiplife superstar Reggie Rockstone says he is still surprised that anyone would accuse him of stealing a car in Ghana

The Ghanaian hiplife musician Reggie Rockstone has said that being accused of stealing a car still breaks his heart, and that the past accusation against him was strange.

Speaking with Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Thursday (21 April 2022), Rockstone (real name: Reginald Yaw Asante Osei) said: “That was a weird one Ghana tried to pull on me … I was unpleasantly surprised by my country when somebody accused me of stealing a car and I was dragged to court.

“I went to court for years to try to prove my innocence and it was at this point that I realised that the Jesus syndrome is your own people.”

He added: “I had folks who I knew personally write on social media [to the effect that] I ‘could steal the car’ … So today if an issue of someone pops up I just keep quiet.

“But I went to court and I had my day … I got off.”

He said he was treated like a punk after being arrested but, “It turned out that this car they said I’ve stolen was my father’s car.”
