Afro-pop singer Rebecca Acheampong, known as Becca in music circles, has revealed that her father was never in support of her career choice as a musician.
She noted that the father’s decision was based on a perception he had about Ghanaian musicians and singers being drug addicts, alcoholics and sex addicts.
"My father did not want to hear anything about music, you know, they have this perception about musicians and singers. They think that they are either into drugs, alcohol and sex and these things formed part of his reasons to disregard my choice."
Speaking in an interview with host Nathaniel Attoh on Autograph on Joy Prime on Multi TV debunked the perception her dad had of musicians, she said that "It is never true. The fact that you are an entertainer does not mean you are like that."
