    The collision of Talent (creativity), disability  and accident is so marked that the tortured artistes has become a cliché. But with depression rising among women an men as artists—it is worth trying to separate the cliché from the truth it masks, and to ask whether the connection between talent (creativity) and depression can help us think again about the bigger picture.

    Most people refer or see Stonebwoy to be disabled but that's a fallacy, the real truth of the matter is, he wasn't born like that. He's current leg injury was due to a fatal accident he suffered during his early youthful days.

    Analyzing Stonebwoy's profile, his talent (creativity) pulled him out of people's hopeless thoughts, and for that matter, he gave his life a meaning and shape by taking part in Kasahari in 2005/2006 (not too sure of the year) hosted by Dr. Duncan at Adom Fm where many rapper were given the platform to showcased their musical talent by rapping, singing and ragga (riding on riddims) on any beat.

    All these while he was limping but he never had any form of manic depression because he knew what he was up to achieving.

    Although he had a lot personal challenges from peers and other caliber of people, he had his mental state very reliable, upright,focused & straight forward, and he also knew that he could do the work (Music). He never took in antidepressants because he  could face the flatness.

    He preferred the highs and the crashes, even though it meant the rages and the withdrawals, and in anyway, he rather had his own suffering than someone else's solution.

    Determination determines ones destiny, pronounce the word artistes in Ghana, Africa and the world at large, to conjure up the image of a sui generis genius, Livingstone Etse Satekla popularly known in Showbiz as Stonebwoy Burniton is one name you can't do without.

    He's very promising, respectful, humble, stylish, crafty, great fashion sense, dynamic, and lyrical beast. As relevant as he is, he solemnly proclaims his love for what he does best, which means he's someone who appears to dwell upon a higher plane, Vision, inspiration, mysterious gifts as from above: such are some of the associations that continue to adorn his presence.

    He's now a music icon and an inspiration to so many people in diverse ways.

    Disabilities and accidents, has nothing to do with talent. Unless maybe one is not willing to pursuit his of her dream.

    Meanwhile, he has one new joint with Mzvee titled Come Over : http://ow.ly/3x8hPp and another joint which he was featured by dancehall 1st Lady (D' Angel) from Jamaican on Tingisha Remix on the (Chaskele Riddim) : https://soundcloud.com/rebelliberationrecords/tingisha-remix
