A new gospel artist, Rexford Opoku, a son of gospel legendary, Prof Kofi Abraham, has revealed that his father’s stage jacket inspired him to be musician.
He said though he was only following his father in taking care of the musical instruments, hardly did he ever thought of being a musician until that fateful dream.
Rexford Opoku, the university graduate, made the revelation on Otec FM’s entertainment show ‘Anokyekrom’ hosted by Collins Tee on Saturday.
As a guest on the show, Rexford Opoku, who is affectionately called Prof Jnr, said his ambition was to be a chartered accountant, until that dream changed his career.
“My interest was only on how to play and take care of the musical instruments, in fact I had no interest in being a musician/singer until that dream,” he made the confession.
He added that “even after the dream, I was adamant because of my poor locals until during a music entertainment show at the university where a pastor prophesized to me to adopt music as my career.”
“One day my father came to me and told me to do music. It was that moment that I realized that the dream has come into a reality, which is, handing over the music batton to me,” he continued.
Prof Jnr said he then decided not to only pursue music as his career, but to continue and protect his father (Prof Kofi Abraham who is considered as the “Professor” of gospel music in Ghana) works.
Rexford Opoku, is out with his debut hit single “Odo”, literally meaning “love”, and has hinted of coming out with more songs and projecting the uncompleted works of his father.
