Ghanaian artiste, Kwesi Arthur was once offered a job as a security guard on his come-up.
Arthur made the revelation during an interview on Starr Chat on Starr 103.5 FM Wednesday.
He was speaking on having to make a choice regards his music career, and the difficult times he faced including not gaining admission to the Ghana Institute of Journalism because his parents couldn’t afford the fees.
That led to people offering him menial jobs.
“I’m glad I stuck to this (music) through all the trials and the stuff people were telling me,” explained Arthur to Bola Bay.
“People offered me jobs to be a security guard and stuff, I almost went for the job. They even called me once to come for my uniform.”
Arthur gained mainstream acclaim with his song ‘Grind Day’ two years ago.
In 2018, he won the ‘Hip Hop Song of the Year’ with the song that brought him mainstream acclaim, and earned a Viewers’ Choice Best New International Act nomination at the 2018 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.
Arthur has headlined a number of shows, and has cemented his place in the mind of music fans in Ghana, and across the world.
