Ghanaian rap artiste, Pappy Kojo also known as Fante Van Damme, has revealed why he went off the music scene for a while. 

According to the ‘Awoa’ hitmaker in an interview with Delay monitored by PrimeNewsGhana, he decided to take a break from active music because of depression.

The "Realer No" rapper disclosed his absence in the music scene was as a result of depression he suffered after releasing his single "Awoa" and losing all three nominations at the 2016 VGMA.

He also added that his loss on the night of the award earned him several bashes online which led him to the depression. His sad situation continued even till the release of the international banger "Akwaaba".

The rapper continued to live in the 'dark world ' despite the global success of "Akwaaba", which made him deny performances coming in through his manager and other extra activities relating to his music career.

However, Pappy Kojo also expressed his sentiment also on how ineffective the music system is.

'It's not healthy here. People expect you to be great and there aren't even structures for you to be great, it's like telling me to be like Cristiano Ronaldo, and we don't even have stadiums. So I don't have to stress myself.

'Thinking about it makes no sense, let's put the music aside. I get my own house, I get my own car I dey drive, I dey travel whenever I want. Have always been good. I have a beautiful family, my mum, my girlfriend is pretty, I shouldn't be stressed', he said.
