Ghanaian musician Justice Amoah, better known as Patapaa, has revealed that he pilfered his mum’s coins in order for him to go to the studios.
Sharing his life story with Zionfelix on the Celebrity Ride show, Patapaa disclosed that he was a bartender at his mother’s pub at Agona Swedru in the Central Region, therefore making him steal some of the coins made at the pub in order to outshine in his career.
He also added that there was no one to assist him in his music career considering the background he was coming from at Swedru hence providing him with no option than to pick profit made out from the mum’s drinking business.
The ‘One Corner’ singer, however, explained that he wasn’t working aside assisting the mum in her pub so it was easy to be caught by the mum, adding that from the studios back to the pub, he had nowhere else to go.
According to him when the mum noticed that he was stealing from her she then released the need to be assisted in his music. He noted that ever since that day, his mum has been supporting him at all cost without giving up on him because she believed in his music dream.
Amused by his answer, Zionfelix further asked if the mum gave up in supporting the career, he said, ‘My mum knew my talent to be music because I was not doing any other job except music at that time so how can he have money to do his music, so it encouraged my mum to realise that the son was going to be great so she started helping me from time to time until God opened doors for me”
Patapaa also indicated that his talent was a gift from God because all his hit songs weren’t written by him or anyone but whenever he listened to rhythms, he flows out the lyrics.
