Obrafour also said the event was so traumatic he nearly became an atheist.

“In 1997 my mum sadly passed on when I gained admission at St. Peters in Akwatia to further my education. I dropped out of school following her demise,” he said in a chat on Suncity FM in Sunyani.

“My faith in God went down after my mother died,” he added.

“I started living the ‘kuborlo’ life…It was very painful at that time, but now I know that no matter how situations may be, God can change bad things for better. I regained and renewed my strength in Him [God] and it paved the way for ‘Pae Mu Ka’ to come.”

Obrafour has been making several media stops as he celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release of ‘Pae Mu Ka’.
