Akwaboah has opened up about what he did to pursue his dream as an artiste.
The Ghanaian singer and songwriter disclosed in a recent interview that he had to make a difficult decision.
While working as an instrumentalist which was not paying well, Akwaboah said he gave up on it.
He then focused on writing his own songs.
Akwaboah said he stayed hungry for about a year when he aimed at becoming an artiste.
“Being an instrumentalist, playing for people and they will give you small money so I said this job I no go do again. I literary came home with nothing and it was not as if I had some money somewhere to spend. I stayed behind to write my songs. When people call me for shows as an instrumentalist I say no, I want to become an artiste and stayed hungry for like a year,” he revealed in an interview with Valerie Danso on the GTV Breakfast Show.
Akwaboah also advised budding artistes not to chase trends.
