Budding songstress Akiyana has revealed how her own father disowned for choosing to be a musician.
Akiyana recounted how tough her life has been since she decided to pursue music without the support of her father.
According to Akiyana who was speaking at the music video premiere of her song “bubra” held in Accra, she said that; “I have hustled really hard and it got to a point where I had no one to help me. My father disowned me because I wanted to do music. Seeing all of you here today gladdens my heart soo much”.
She however clarified that after seeing her success since joining the music industry, her father is now in full support of her craft because he’s seen improvements.
It is very typical of Ghanaian parents to frown upon their children going into the arts industry. Most parents prefer their children to become lawyers, doctors, Accountants amongst other professions they see as “respectable”.
As Akiyana’s father has decided to support her dreams, we wish her all the best and hope he doesn’t change his mind at the long run.
