I won't pretend Willi Roi was my friend - Stonebwoy

Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has reiterated his reasons for not attending the funeral of the late Willi Roi, who was the Head of the Zylofon Arts Club.

According to him, he was being honest in a video which went viral where he said he did not have a good relationship with Willi Roi.

“I answered some delicate questions and I was honest about what I said and I don’t stand to pull back anything and I’m not saying it with a wicked heart, the truth they say hurts but it set people free,” he said in an interview on Accra-based Hitz FM.

Stonebwoy alleged that Willi Roi’s death was not natural, so it is normal that people he was not in the best of terms with would be linked to his demise.

“The manner in which he passed, as Ghanaians, as superstitious people, you might even feel that it not over a natural dead therefore or probably people have hands in it…my father will tell me that in a situation like this, whoever he wasn’t free with will to a large extent come to mind,” he said.

“I feel it, he’s human, I look at him from an artiste point of view, I have seen his videos I only got to hear his name and know him last two years ago only when Menzgold and Zylofon came to play, I have never heard anybody Willi Roi before.”

Stonebwoy, however, added that there was nothing like a good relationship between them when they worked together at Zylofon.

“I don’t have any relationship with him, we have met only once in the office to record a jingle together for a project …and aside that I haven’t had any good relationship with him till today, so in a situation like this do I have to pretend?” he queried.

Background

Willi Roi died on Sunday, February 10, in his apartment at the Royal Richester Hotel at East Legon in Accra.

His body was found by security personnel who were on a routine check.
