Popular musician and blogger Kobby Kyei has disclosed that he married his wife, Georgette in a rush because she was pregnant.
Speaking in an interview on Ayekoo Ayekoo, Kobby Kyei spoke about his first beginnings and how he used to sleep on a black blanket which was worth GHc20. He described the blanket as “my first property” when his wife got pregnant.
According to Kobby Kyei the only money he was depending on was the stipends journalists received from media events nicknamed “Solidarity”. He disclosed that sometimes he was given GHc50 as “soli”.
“I had just started blogging and nobody knew me or had my name on their list when I went to events”.
Kobby Kyei disclosed that when his wife got pregnant, he asked her to keep it although he wasn’t financially stable.
“The very day we realized she was pregnant, I held her hand and went to see her parents”, he told the host of Ayekoo Ayekoo on Accra 100.5 FM.
“My girlfriend’s parents did not know. The girl didn’t tell them also. She protected me because she believed I was hardworking and could make it”.
Kobby recounted how he showed the marriage list to his parents but they shot him down because it was an impromptu ceremony.
“I went to show the list to my parents but they told me they were unprepared and this was an impromptu wedding and I wasn’t employed”, he disclosed.
He disclosed how he used his “soli” money to buy clothes and other necessities and other items on the marriage list.
