It’s sometimes painful growing up to know you were rejected by the one who brought you into this world for unknown reasons.
This has always become the case of fathers when things get tough for them in life or realises the child they brought into the world has a certain type of deformity.
Some fathers also neglect their duty due to financial constraints but that cannot be overlooked as many of them have struggled through hard times to cater for their children.
In the case of Ghanaian actor, Samuel Dabo, known in the entertainment industry as Yaw Dabo, he was rejected by his father at a young age after he had challenges with his job but thanks to his mother, he wouldn’t have seen the daylight.
Recounting his struggles after his father left, the popular actor narrated that his mother single-handedly raised him and two other siblings, and after many years his father came back to apologise and to seek for his support.
In response, the midget actor said if he could take the law into his own hands at the time, he would have shot his father dead.
“I am the first child of three children and it has taken the grace of God for us all to be successful after our father left us. I am able to provide for my mum despite how tough the movie industry has become and built a three-bedroom house for her,” he said on Nhyira FM’s Obra Show.
“My mum recently called me seeking forgiveness and support for my father after he confessed his admiration of my hard work and talent in the movie industry. But, I asked myself, would he have looked for me or my siblings if he hadn’t seen me on TV?” he added.
