Losing a mum is a very traumatic experience, especially when you’re very close to her.
It’s certainly an event which can make you take a life-altering decision, something Ghana’s legendary ‘rap sofor’, Obrafour, admits he once nearly did.
Obrafour has revealed that when he lost his mum at a very tender age, he was in senior high and the pain made him drop out of school and become a ‘kubolor’.
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’.
In a controversial interview, he slammed Charterhouse as greedy and the cause of issues in the Ghana music industry.
