Awo Bediako, mother of renowned music producer, Sugar Tone, has admitted his son is a drug addict.
She told Agyemang Prempeh (Agyemang Nie), host of Power Entertainment on Power FM Saturday night when asked about his son’s condition.
“Yes, I am aware,” Awo revealed when Agyemang enquired whether she was aware of his son’s drug addiction.
This comes a week after a video went viral on social media showing drunk Sugar Tone lying on the floor helpless.
He became a subject of public ridicule while some suggested he should be sent to a rehab before the situation gets out of hand.
Trying to know the condition of the once popular music producer, Agyemang called Awo Bediako but she was reluctant to talk about the current condition of his son.
To her, something was being done to save her son but she would not tell where Sugar Tone was.
Earlier on the show, Sugar’s father, Okyeame Bediako, had revealed he had seen his son three days earlier.
Mr Bediako said he was not sure his son had taken in alcohol before he was filmed.
According to Okyeame Bediako, he suspected Sugar Tone had taken a hard drug.
He blamed his former wife, Awo Bediako, for the current situation of Sugar Tone.
“Sugar has been in the same house with his mother for a long time,” he said.
The couple divorced in the mid 90s and their two children stayed with their mom.
“Sugar was his mom’s money bag. Kofi [the eldest] was bringing nothing home” Okyeame Bediako told Agyemang Prempeh while blaming his former wife for Sugar’s habit.
“His mother has over pampered him that is why this is happening,” Bediako added.
Awo Bediako quickly rebutted, saying his former husband did not take care of their children ever since he left home.
” I have been taking care of the children ever since he left home. Ask him if he ever paid for the school fees of any of the children,” she alleged.
Agyemang advised both of them to take interest in getting a professional to help their son.
