Boxer/comedian/musician Bukom Banku has a plan to improve his portfolio, a plan which involves him returning to complete the education he abruptly abandoned.
The boxer, born Braimah Kamoko, cut off his education to pursue his pugilistic career at an early age. He has had a relatively successful career so far, but he plans returning to the classroom to complete his education.
Bukom Banku made the revelation during an appearance on Live Fm Tuesday.
“I am going back to school; I am going to Accra Royal in Jamestown and ready to start from Form 1.” He said.
According to Kamoko, he admires those who pursue education, and therefore wants to join their ranks.
“Education is very important and I don’t joke with that. I admire people who pursue education and that is what I want to do.”
A return to education would not be a bad idea for the famously gaffe prone boxer. However, what is wrong with Banku’s actions would require more than a simple return to school to solve.
