Casting my mind back in my musical journey, I had nobody to sponsor my career. So these life challenges inspired me to write this song.”

He added that none of his brothers were high school graduates because of their father’s demise.

With over 40 years of doing music, 26 albums, the lead singer for the Asomafo band has made waves in the gospel music industry.
