Veteran Ghanaian actor Akwasi Boadi, popularly known as Akrobeto, has shared his thoughts on the recent accident involving his colleague LilWin, which tragically resulted in the death of a 3-year-old boy named Tawiah Ampomah.

Akrobeto said that LilWin’s involvement in the accident and his subsequent actions do not reflect positively on his public image and societal standing.

He, however, commended the Ghana Police Service’s decision to detain LilWin for questioning, noting the importance of applying the law equally to all, regardless of their prominence.

Speaking on UTV, Akrobeto offered advice to fellow celebrities, urging them to conduct themselves in a manner that sets a positive example for their admirers.

He emphasized the impartiality of the law, stating, “Upon your release from remand, it’s important to make wise decisions because, in Ghana, no one is above the law.

“We, as public figures, must lead lives that inspire others, avoiding such incidents.”

Akrobeto continued, “When you deviate from the right path, the law will intervene without exception. Pastor Owusu Bempah, for instance, was taken into custody and subsequently issued an apology. There have been others who have faced legal consequences for their actions,” he said in Twi.

LilWin was detained by police on Monday, June 3, 2024, after being discharged from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

He has since been granted bail of GH¢50,000, and the case has been adjourned to June 27, 2024.

The incident has sparked discussions on the responsibilities of public figures and the importance of adhering to the law, regardless of one’s status.
