Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) unsung artiste, Kelvyn Boy, has disclosed on the mid-morning show on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, his father denied him care for refusing to give up on his music career.
In an exclusive interview with Sokoohemaa Kukua Thursday, the Afro Pop artiste said, his father gave him the option to either choose between his music career or move out of his house.
Born into an Adventist family, I hard the privilege of singing for the music group where my father was also a singer but I was also going to other churches to sing for them.
But my father was not in support of the idea and so I had to move out the house and hustle.
Kelvyn Boy who is originally known as Kelvin Brown said it took the help of some pastors to see him through secondary education although he could not write his final exams.
‘’If I had not taken that risk on the street, it would not have been the best. The decision was the best and it has paid off for me. My father told me he would not sponsor my education should I refuse to give up on my music career.''
The artiste said he played at clubs and other events in order to survive.
When asked if he regrets not writing the West African Examination, he said, not really but I have the intention of writing a remedial so I will get my certificate and pursue higher education.
