One of Ghana’s finest Dancehall artiste, Samini has disclosed that all wasn’t rosy when growing up as a kid, he had to sell ‘Koko’ and ‘koose’ in Dansoman just to survive.
The “My Own” hitmaker in an interview with DJ Adviser on Happy FM’s “Ayekoo After Drive” show said;
“I grew up in Dansoman (DC), we were daddy’s boys but hard boys as well. I sold Koko and Koose all over Dansoman. Everybody knows me for selling Coco and Koose. I carried the things I sold on my head so they know and call me ‘Koo Emma’.”
“When I was 12 years, I sold Koko and Koose for money during vacations from school,” he added.
It looks like all our musicians didn’t have it easy before hitting the limelight and this is a big lesson for the young and “underground” musicians aspiring to be like some of these successful artistes.
