Fameye disclosed how he enjoyed teaching kids and often sang jamma songs for them, noting that his unique approach to teaching helped him build a good rapport with the children, who gave him the nickname, “Teacher Peter.”
“I have taught before at Mempeasem, located in East Legon around Trinity. With kids, you don’t need to do much, and I used to sing jamma for the children too much. I took the kids to the streets too much,” he shared.
Recounting the experience of teaching children and the joy he derived from it, Fameye disclosed how the school’s headmistress was sometimes baffled by his unique teaching style.
