According to Benjamin, he’s a person who has lived in two children’s homes and on the streets of Accra for many years. He said things got really hard for him to the extent that he was not having a place to sleep.
He came to the conclusion of ending his life until he started listening to some songs from the Bhim Nation president back in 2010. He said Stonebwoy’s choice of words in his songs encouraged him to never give up in life no matter what he’s going through.
Benjamin revealed that through the inspirations he picked from the ‘Putuu’ hitmaker’s songs, he’s now a graduate from Accra Polytechnic and also from NAFTI. Read the full letter below;

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.
