Ghanaian music artiste, Fameye, has disclosed that before he rose to fame, he used to be a teacher.
While speaking in an interview on Accra FM, he revealed that he sued to be a teacher at Mempeasem, a community located around Trinity, East Legon.
He said he was given the nickname “Teacher Peter” by his pupils who he enjoyed teaching and often sang “jamma” songs for. He added that he had a unique style of teaching which endeared him to the pupils.
Fameye said he taught before at Mempeasem, located in East Legon around Trinity. With kids, you don’t need to do much, and he used to sing “jamma” for the children too much and took the kids to the streets too much.
Fameye recollected fond memories of teaching children and the joy he derived from it, he, however, admitted that the school’s headmistress was sometimes baffled by his teaching style.
He further added one could imagine him teaching these East Legon children the songs he used to teach them.
Fameye concluded that the school used to pay him GHC150.00 at the time.
