How BBC World reported LilWin accident story

The BBC World Service on June 4, 2024 carried a story on the deadly accident involving comic actor and movie producer, Kwadwo Nkansah, alias LilWin.

The story, titled “Boy’s family seek justice after crash with Ghana actor,” detailed events after the crash of May 25 which claimed the life of a three-year-old in Kumasi.

It leveraged on the court case LilWin is facing and the caution by the family of the deceased that they will pursue the case to its logical conclusion, ruling out any settlement outside of the courts.

LilWin was on Monday granted bail to the tune of 50,000 cedis with two sureties to be justified.

Boy’s family seek justice after crash with Ghana actor

The family of a three-year-old boy killed in a car crash involving popular Ghanaian actor and musician Lil Win have said they are “determined to seek justice”.

The child died in a hospital in the city of Kumasi after the crash on 25 May, local media reports.

Lil Win, real name Kwadwo Nkansah, was also taken to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital – and arrested on Monday after being discharged.

In a statement issued before his arrest, the actor’s production company had called the crash a “tragic accident”.

Lil Win was charged with dangerous driving and causing harm through negligence at Kumasi’s Asokore Mampong District Court on Monday.

He was not asked to enter a plea and was granted bail for 50,000 Ghanaian cedis (£2,630; £3,355). The court adjourned the case until 27 June.

Afterwards, two relatives of the three-year-old boy Nana Yaw told local radio station Angel FM that they were counting on the police to investigate the matter thoroughly.

One of the men said: “We are determined to seek justice for our child.”

The family members accused Lil Win of failing to contact the family after the crash – until he heard that a young child had died. The actor has not commented the allegation.

The boy’s father, Jacob Kofi Amponsah, remains in hospital.

The premiere of Lil Win’s new film, A Country Called Ghana, was cancelled in the wake of the collision.

It was scheduled to take place on Saturday 1 June in Sunyani, a city around 123km (76 miles) away from Kumasi, but Lil Win’s production company Wezzy Empire called it off.

“This difficult decision was made in respect of the memory of three-year-old boy, Nana Yaw, who unfortunately lost his life in a tragic accident involving our Chief Executive Officer, Kwadko Nkansah ‘Lil Win’ last Saturday and join the family in mourning their loss,” a statement, posted to Lil Win’s social media accounts last Thursday, said.

“The CEO extends their sincere condolences to the bereaved family and wish a speedy recovery to the father, Mr Jacob Kofi Amponsah.”
