According to the rapper, he never had the opportunity to see his biological mother till Junior Secondary School.
The most decorated African rapper, made this revelation when he appeared on Franky5’s special ‘This Is Gospel’ show on Hitz FM.
According to Sarkodie, it happened because his dad took him away from his mum when he was still a little kid and handed him over to a caretaker.
He added that growing up with the caretaker was not as pleasant as he would have wanted because aside from being denied the pleasure of growing with his mother, his dad was also not around to be the father figure in his life.
The C.E.O of Sarkcess Music said what kept him strong during those times is prayer.
He said on a random day, he was in class at Achimota Preparatory School when he saw his mother approaching.
