“We had a rough kind of lifestyle. I have been a heavy smoker, drinker, and went into rap music. If someone has said I will become a pastor, I never would have believed it,” he said.

He further indicates that his bad life started when he was only an adolescent as he was born in Tesano and then grew up in Fadama and Abeka.

Prophet Oduro added that he had his encounter with God through a near-death experience, and it had redirected his course in life but did not take away his 'toughness'.
