“I was forced by my uncle but still dropped out of secondary sch. I have taught myself everything I know. I learned from real life experience".
Paedae, a member of Tema-based music group R2Bees, has revealed that he did not take education seriously and had to drop out of secondary school even though he was forced at a point to go to school.
He explained that, he did not find interest in schooling because his parents are illiterates and school was not relevant to them so, he had to choose whether to go to school or not and he chose not to.
Paedae added that though he did not go further with his education, he has however taught himself everything he knows through life experiences and he has been equipped him with things formal education ‘can’t build you’.
The rapper revealed this in a series of tweets. He also preached about accepting oneself and being enlightened.
“My parents are illiterates. School didn't mean sh!t to them. I had to choose from primary education to go to school or not. I chose not to. I was forced by my uncle but still dropped out of secondary sch", he wrote.
I have taught myself everything I know. I learned from real life experience.In those experiences I was equipped in a way formal education can't build you. Formal education will teach you to become someone else", he added.
In preaching about accepting oneself and being enlightened he wrote, "Your body is a universe. You are bigger than GHANA-AFRICA. You are more awesome than the world and all in it. But you have to be YOU to realize it. Stop living someone else's life/dream".
"Wrong wording. You are 'as' awesome as the world and all in it…".
"All my life I've been me. Before I became more enlightened I always felt I'm more powerful intelligent better than everybody. When I became more enlightened I realized I was as powerful, intelligent and better as everybody. You can be Steve jobs or Kwame Nkrumah".
"Trust your instincts. Do good. You burn more energy spreading hate. Spread love instead. Live free. LOVE”, he concluded.
