The rapper told Ghanaian award-winning broadcaster, Abeiku Santana, in an interview.
Lord Kenya revealed that his hit song “Driver” was purposely written to address the poor state of our roads after he himself went through many accidents.
He told Abeiku that it’s God who protected him from all the accidents and prison cases.
“I can only thank God because some of my accidents were very serious. People felt I even died in one that happened at City Hotel going to the prisons, there is a curve and a pillar there. My car got so close to the pillar and everyone thought I was dead. That was when I realized people have to be careful. But I did the ‘Driver’ song alright, when I am in my car I say driver speed up. And then I damaged one man’s car and he reported me to the Asokwa police station and the police started looking for me. I had 15 accidents and six police cases throughout my career” he told Santana on Okay FM.
He further explained: “So the idea was that I realized there were so many accidents so people had to be careful but personally I wasn’t living according to my lyrics. But I thank God. My first police station was my issue with the man I damaged his car, the second we went to beat someone. The third was when I pushed some police officers off the stage. I again damaged some car from my old boy and the police came in. Yeah, I had a few cases. I even attacked a police officer but in all this, I will say God knows his own. It is just by the grace of God. I think we lost a lot of great people through road accidents. May their souls rest in peace. We should be careful in life. Some will go and return. Others will not and you can’t question God about it”.
