“Ever since I’ve been here in Accra, it’s been music all over because dad is not a radio person so he would direct you on the kind of songs to listen to. I grew up with daddy…daddy will be going for a trek, now we call it tour, to different regions playing and I’d follow him. So, somehow, I had it in me that I actually wanted to do music,” Akwaboah Jnr said.

He stated further that he knows singing highlife and keeping to it is difficult but he believes with time and perseverance he will get to the top.
