Since news broke last Sunday that popular hiplife musician, Castro, was feared drowned after a Jet Ski accident with a lady friend, many of his colleague artists have been praying that he is found alive.
Reports say that Castro was in the company of Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, who together with friends were spending the weekend at an Ada resort. Castro was said to have taken one of the Jet Skis available out on a cruise on the Volta River, along with the lady friend.
The lady, according to reports, fell off the Jet Ski into the water, prompting Castro to try to rescue her. It was in his effort to help the lady that Castro also went down under.
The lady has been identified as Janet Bandu, an upcoming actress who took part in Multi-TV’s reality show I’m In Love with Bomaye in 2012. 24 year-old Janet is a student in fashion design in Accra.
