Into the Future hitmaker, Stonebwoy has extended a heartfelt congratulations to Rastafarian student, Tyrone Marguy for his sterling performance at this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for scoring 8As.
Tyrone gained popularity in 2021 when his admission to Achimota Secondary School became a subject of discussion following an initial decision to deny him entry, largely because of his Rastafarian looks. It took a legal redress to secure him a spot in his school of choice.
Since then, Marguy has been a subject of public interest with most people monitoring his progress and so it was little wonder when a video of him checking his WASSCE results online and securing 8 As has gone viral since yesterday.

Since then, a number of people have congratulated him and once again ignited conversations about the need for the Ghanaian society to be more accommodating to Rastafarians.
And just like many of his admirers, Stonebwoy has added his voice to congratulatory messages, emphasizing that Marguy’s academic prowess eliminates the negative labels against Rastafarians.
He tweeted, “Congratulations – This Continues to Defy The Odds That All Rastas Are Up To No Good. 10 VIP tickets for You And Friends- Let’s celebrate On Friday at the Stadium”.
In appreciation of Stonebwoy’s gesture, Marguy replied with gratitude and accepted the invitation to the BHIM Concert.
The Achimota School admission saga involving Marghuy made headlines when he and another student, Oheneba Nkrabea, were initially denied entry due to their dreadlocks.
After a legal battle, Marghuy was eventually admitted, asserting the right of Rastafarian students to maintain their hairstyles and it appears his latest academic feat will further boost the confidence of his ilk in future.
