He added, “And looking at my results I saw that it wasn’t good enough and so I knew I wouldn’t do well in my final exams and that’s when I told myself that I need a plan B”.
In a virtual interview on Accra-based Asaase Radio, Blacko who was speaking from London said realizing that he was about to fail his final exams, he decided to come up with an alternative to his education.
He narrated “I remember that in my SHS days I used to play beat on tables with my hand for my friends to sing and rap with it so one day I decided to do a freestyle and they loved it so that was when I decided to try it.
“My first time in the studio was somewhere in the year 2019 and the experience was something else and after I completed SHS in June 2019 I decided to venture into music full-time,” he concluded.
