Dear @stonebwoyb

I’ve heard it time and time again, “God puts people in your life for a reason”. It’s a common theme, people say it all the time.. but this is something I truly believe when it comes to you and I think you need to know how big of an inspiration you really are to me.

I know that you will most likely never see this, and that’s the pain of this situation but that won’t stop
Me from writing this..To you, I am just “another fan”, but to me you are an inspiration and a god I am so proud to ever b alive to witness ur Glory.
Life has been tough, I recall my days on the street of Accra. A street boy who had no where to sleep, my days in two different orphanage homes, and when life became unbearable, I decided to take my life.

Having a second Life is something that don’t really happen to people. I started listening to ur music in 2010. Ur choice of words forming music did not only brought joy to my heart but also strength to my soul and a believe I can also make it..

Today not only am I alive, i am a proud old student of Accra polytechnic and a Film director who completed NAFTI,I am also blessed with a craft. Just as I take a bold step to sell my craft to the world I want to say thank you, thank You for inspiring me.

Looking for 1000 ways to show my gratitude knowing there is nothing I can offer in person which u don’t already have I decided to have ur image in my garden.. I am grateful and will forever b.
