I never saw my mum until JHS – Sarkodie shares his story

Ghana’s most decorated rapper, Sarkodie yesterday in an interview on Hitz FM’s ‘This is Gospel’ shared his sad story of the struggles he went through growing up as a kid.

According to Sarkodie, born Michael Owusu Addo, he never set eyes on his biological mother until he got to junior high school.

Narrating what made him not to see his mum for that long was because he was taken away by his dad when he was still a very little boy and handed him over to a caretaker at Mile 7.

According to Sarkodie, the caretaker was always maltreating him and always feared when he gets home after school.

“I didn’t know where my mum was, I didn’t know dad was. My mum didn’t know exactly where I was because my dad came to pick me, my dad knew where I was but I didn’t know where he was staying,” he said.

The ‘Adonai’ hitmaker further disclosed how his mother found him when he was in JHS and his reaction towards meeting his mother after so many years.
