The military dream
Looking back, Kobby Kyei narrated he had his tertiary education from the University of Winneba where he pursued a diploma in music with the intention to become an Officer in the military.
The blogger further said, getting a job after school was very difficult.
He however had a large following on social media from the university due to his love for Sarkodie and was using his platform to promote anything Sarkodie.
Reaping the benefits
Mr Kyei said thanks to blogging, he has been able to do very well for himself as he has bought his very own car through that, and has gotten married with kids, thanks to what he is currently doing.
He, however, stated that the ‘dirty’ blogging other platforms are practising has created a bad perception about the blogging space and due to that, he has lost several big deals.
