Ohemaa said there was a point in her life she couldn’t even afford to pay her rent, and she had to just roam as a teacher in her school with her baby till late in the night when the landlady would be asleep before she sneaks into her room, just so she’s not bugged to make payments.

She revealed a number of her songs are based on inspirations she got pertaining to what her brothers had been through.
Grace to excel
