Ghastly accident inspires Yaw Sarpong’s ‘Aseda’
Speaking about the inspiration behind his latest song ‘Aseda’ he recounted how he and his family as well as his music partner, Tiwaa, were involved in a ghastly accident. He disclosed that after news broke out that he was involved in an accident, some reports had it that he was dead. However, they later got the information that he was still alive and no one died. He further asked that government should fix the road since it’s one major cause of accidents in the country.
“Last year in October, I was traveling to Kumasi with Tiwaa and my children, and we got into a very terrible accident. As I said, God always takes me out of trouble. I was asleep and didn’t know what was going on. I woke up and I was at the hospital. But thankfully no one died. We just got injured, but we all survived. Some media houses were even saying that I was dead and all that but later they got to know that I was alive. So, it became necessary that I write this song and thank God for everything.
“The road was so small, I think that also amounts to the reason why the accident occurred. If only government will listen to our humble plea and fix the road, it will really help reduce these accidents. Because we have said this time and again to fix it. If God was not on my side, I would have died with my family”.
