William Ramzy Amui, popularly known as Ramzy, first runner-up in the first edition of music reality show, ‘Stars of the Future’ after deciding to sing gospel following his release from prison in 2017 is of the view that his experience allows him to be mentioned in the bible.
According to the musician who was sentenced to 10yrs in prison, his experience in the past and how he has been able to survive all the tides that came his way is a miracle and one worth sharing.
Speaking on Kasapa FM, the former hiplife singer who used to survive on clubbing activities revealed that he comes from a God fearing home but he managed to find himself in an ungodly lifestyle during his early stage. Though he loved singing and doing hiplife, Ramzy has sworn never to go back to his past but rather focus on doing gospel.
Ramzy told Kojo Preko that his family had to go through pain because they had to feed him since he couldn’t fend on the food that was been served at NSAWAM.
The musician added that he was again sentenced to 20yrs in prison after being sentenced 10yrs for a crime he knew nothing about.
“I read the bible 4 times during my Ten Years in Prison. After spending 10yrs in prison, the judges added another 20yrs to my sentence”,
He further stated that this qualifies his story to be captured in the bible should it happen that the holy book is to be written again.
The Musician’s recent release dubbed ‘Nka Meye’ is a gospel song which Shatta Movement Boss, Shatta Wale has endorsed by stating that the song is an inspiring one.
The budding musician, who saw his dream cut short abruptly in 2007, was freed from the Nsawam Maximum Prison last Thursday.
In 2007, Ramzy and eight others pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy, armed robbery and dishonesty receiving under Article 29, Clause 146 of the criminal code.
A Tema based businesswoman, Cynthia Koda, on January 23, 2007 reported an armed robbery attack to the Tema Regional Police. She said her 4×4 Toyota Highlander with registration number GT 6409X and an amount of GH¢300 were taken from her at gun point at her community 11 shop the previous evening.

They were arrested and put before court and was given a 10-year jail term.
Before his incarceration, Ramzy was fast rising in the Ghanaian music industry. He placed second at the Stars of the Future in 2006 and also auditioned for the M-net West Africa Idol contest in Nigeria in 2007.
