Eight-year-old Talented Kids Season 12 contestant, Raymond Nyarko Appiah, better known as Akwadaa Nyame has given a heart-rending narration about his life.
The youngster who has faced cycles of rejections disclosed that he has never set his eyes on his biological father.
In an interview with Kofi Adoma on Kofi TV, Nyarko Appiah disclosed that his biological father denied him before he was born, compelling his mother to roam in churches with him on Sundays to minister to earn some money for their upkeep.
The child artiste discovered his singing talent at age four and has since been working to improve himself, he said.
As a child, he has faced tons of adversities because he had to learn how to make money at that tender age to help his mother provide for them.
He bemoaned that his father denied responsibility for his mother’s pregnancy and neglected her, forcing her to send him to churches to sing for money.
Despite the drawbacks, he has refused to relent and is determined to succeed.
The child artiste shares a narration of adversities including the series of rejection which started with his father.
