Uprising Ghanaian artiste, born Kelvin Agyekum and popularly called Kurl Songx says he has no regret for quitting his teaching job.
The young artiste sharing his life story in an interview with News-One disclosed that he was a professional teacher at Brainy World International School at Kokomlemle, a suburb in Accra for two years where he was being paid GH¢90 a month.
“It all started in 2016 when I was a teacher. I woke up one morning and decided to search for a different job. I was struggling here in Accra and that time I was teaching.
“My salary was GH¢90 so I went to Takoradi to search for a different job. On my way back home, I met this young man on the bus who watched me years ago on Vodafone Icons reality show. He asked me what happened to my music career. I was like I am focusing on how to survive and he said no I have great talent and should continue pushing.
“He convinced me and told me about MTN Hitmaker. Coincidentally, they were having an audition for MTN Hitmaker that day. So we quickly went to the venue and I auditioned and by God’s grace, I qualified.
“Back in the days I had to struggle to get into the studio to record but now we have a studio at our disposal because I am signed to Highly Spiritual and we don’t have to hustle anymore,” he narrated.
