Sarkodie, a well-known rapper from Ghana, struggled to find his calling while pursuing a variety of interests and skills.
Despite being one of Africa’s most well-known musicians today, Sarkodie’s career began with goals that were unrelated to the world of beats and songs.
Sarkodie revealed a side of himself that many of his fans might not be familiar with in a candid chat with the music website NandoLeaks on their podcast.
The ‘Money No Be Problem’ rapper, real name Michael Owusu-Addo, claimed that his childhood desire to become a doctor was fueled by his love of the sciences.
“At first, I wanted to be a doctor. I also paint and doodle. So there’s clearly progress in that area,” he stated in the show.
But life has a way of leading us along the road that is destined for us. Sarkodie was drawn to music by its attraction, which made him want to learn more about the field.
He claims that his mother, Emma (Ewurama) Maame Aggrey, who was worried about his future, offered him a year to succeed in the music business or go back to school.
The artist, who is presently on tour in North America, recalled the crucial occasion, saying, “She acted just like an ordinary African parent… they are concerned about your future and believe that their choice is the best one for you.
The one-year window was a turning point in his life because fate appeared to be on his side about his desire to pursue music.
“I was fortunate that she gave me a year to show myself because it was also the year that things began to improve. I was fortunate. Perhaps I wouldn’t be sitting here with you if it had continued into the following year, Sarkodie acknowledged gratefully.
