In his own words
"Growing up, my dream was to be a great football player. I was really good. It was Abedi Pele that I used to regard as my idol. He was one of the greatest in the world. And people used to tell me I played just like him. I'm left-handed and left-footed just like him," Sonnie said.

According to the famous musician whose impact is being felt around the globe, his relentless ambition for football crashed after he suffered an injury.
Whilst still injured, Sonnie indicates that he found love for singing, and his passion just switched suddenly, which he is now very grateful for.
"I consider it to be an act of God. He is the one who directed me towards this path. If I had continued to become a footballer, nobody knows what would have happened. I would have probably been dead even", he added.
