Fameye Speaks On Why he ditched teaching to join the music industry 

Ghanaian rapper Peter Famiyeh Bozah known as Fameye or Peter, has disclosed that he was a teacher at Mempeasem located in East Legon but had to quit because of his music career.

The ‘Nothing I Get’ hitmaker lamented his meagre salary at the time but said he managed to cope with it without pursuing dubious ways of making additional money.

In an interview monitored by The Ghana Report on Accra FM, Fameye said, “I have taught at Mempeasem before”.

“Oh, you know, for children, it is multiplication and others, and in KG (Kindergarten), you teach everything.”

“I used to sing ‘jama’ (cheer songs),” he recounted. “I once did a particular song that got the headmistress upset.”

“I took them to the ‘street’ too much,” Fameye said, explaining with a demonstration of an Akan rhyme that tells the story of a man who exchanged gunfire with a supposed ghost on his farm”, he added.

According to him, his students used to call him ‘Sir Peter’ and not Fameye, which is well-known in the entertainment industry.

He said he terminated his teaching contract to join the Ghana Music Industry in 2017.

Famaye has songs like ‘Praise’, Nothing I Get, ‘Twa So’, ‘Susuka’, ‘Long Life’, ‘Ahwehwe’, ‘Obolo’ and others.

He recently released a dirge after the death of Ghana winger Christian Atsu on February 6, 2023.
