Renowned Ghanaian Highlife singer, Kwabena Kwabena says marrying in his twenties stole precious years of his life.
Speaking in an interview with Zionfelix recently, the “Aso” hitmaker said he should have concentrated on his young and blossoming career at the time other than settling down.
“The irony of the whole thing is, I played a role in stealing my whole life away from me at a point.
“The reason why I am saying that is as at 26 and 27, around that time, I felt that what I should have done was to focus on my career and not allow any external force to derail my train,” he said.
Despite what he believes were missed opportunities to enjoy his life at the time, Kwabena Kwabena said he is happy to reclaim such lost moments now.
Kwabena Kwabena pointed out that he is now older and wiser to understand the importance of seizing opportunities and not taking anything for granted.
“I feel I was a young guy around that time, but by God’s grace, God has given me the chance again to have a second shot of my life.
“That’s the reason why I am not taking things for granted because around that time, there were other people who have become casualties or were involved, and so I don’t want to make it look as if I was a great person and somebody was bad.
“I feel that at a point in my life, I should have focused on my career more than any other thing. I shouldn’t have married then,” Kwabena Kwabena said.
While others may wallow in misery, the “Fa Me Saa” singer prefers to capitalize on difficult circumstances of being heartbroken to write his best love songs.
In an earlier interview with George Quaye on Showbiz A-Z in January, Kwabena Kwabena says he channels his energy into writing beautiful songs when he is heartbroken.
“The best time for me to write great songs is when I am heartbroken. So I love it. I love those moments”, he revealed.
