Princess Amoah disclosed her parents divorced while she was still in primary school, which affected her performance in primary school and later in secondary school.
Though she admits she was a stubborn child because of her troubling childhood, she blames her parents' divorce on the difficulties she encountered in her studies in senior high school.
''I didn't complete school, I didn't even write the exams. it's the broken home; I blame the divorce of my parents. Half of it is the cause of my parent's divorce,'' she told SVTV Africa.
Princess Amoah had to stay with her mother after her parents' divorce but her father later came for her to live with him.
The trouble of living with either parent from time to time greatly compelled her to move back to stay with her mother.
During this time, her mother's financial situation had a challenge on their living condition.
Unlike her father who worked in construction, her mother could hardly provide for her siblings and her.
