I Forfeited My Scholarship For Music - Kobby Prairie
Artiste, Kobby Prairie, recounts on how he left his studies to pursue his dream
Kobby Prairie has outlined the sacrifices he had to make to pursue music.
According to the singer/songwriter, he left a fully-funded United Kingdom Scholarship just to make tracks for the people.
The adept instrumentalists explained that he developed a strong passion for music and playing the piano along the line while schooling and that he just had to stick with it despite all the other tempting avenues that he could have explored.
“When I had to make that decision, I had not written any song yet but I had the talent and I just had to make the decision of forgoing the scholarship”.
He said this while speaking Foster Romanus on e.TV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show.
“It was a hard decision for me to take because I was going to study Psychology outside the country. An opportunity lots of people will die for but I didn’t. I later went back to the university after going back and forth only for me to be in another psychology class which I hated”.
“So every time we closed from the psychology class I’ll ask myself, so this was what I was going to major in?” he added.
Kobby Prairie further asserted that he has never regretted the decision for once.
“No, I don’t regret it because I don’t think or know if there was ever a great person who was able to impact lives without having to make a decision which will seem insane at the moment. I have no regrets whatsoever."
"I did not go to England because I didn’t like studying, but then, I just had this burning desire to do music,” He concluded.
