Ghanaian gospel musician Luigi Maclean has revealed he used to sing for his seniors’ girlfriends on the phone back in Senior High School.
The musician, who was nominated the Best Male Vocalist at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was speaking on the Class Drive (CD) on Class91.3FM, Thursday, 28 May 2020.
Luigi who was also referred to as an R and B King back in Mfantsipim School told show host, Prince Benjamin, that: “The interesting part about this was how the seniors will call you, they had their phones in school, sorry for telling on you I mean you are too old to be punished now. So they call their sweethearts in other schools in the Gey Heys and the Holycos they call them and tell them okay, I’m about to sing for you and then they call me, so I get over and I sing on their behalf. I mean, if you don’t sing it, that’s the end of you. So that’s what I used to do back in school.”
He described those moments as “fun times.”
Luigi added: “That dream was there to do the R and B because the funny reason was that I feel like Ghanaians had so much but it’s not showing so I feel like I should be that kind of saviour to do the R and B and put Ghana on the map but I believe that God had something greater for me, like a purpose.”
The musician, who used to be a member of gospel music group, Joyful Way Incorporated was featured on Joe Mettle’s award-winning song titled ‘Bo No Ni’.
He is also currently promoting his new song titled ‘Oguama’ featuring MOG.
