The rapper’s childhood has been a little bit of challenging, narrating to Kuulpeeps, Young Arthur had rickets whilst growing up and after SHS, he was supposed to go to GIJ but couldn’t pay the fees so didn’t make it. At one crazy moment, he almost became a security guard. The story is, he had bought forms to the University of Ghana but didn’t get admission.
Kwesi Arthur’s whole rap career started after listening to Drake’s ‘Thank Me Later’. Let’s say it was the stepping stone to what Kwesi Arthur is today. Big ups to Drake.
