Agbeko recounts his regretful past

According to Agbeko, he fell victim to substance use and lost his home when he became addicted, forcing him to return to the streets.

The Ototo Me hitmaker, who has now cut his locks, says his life as a homeless person plunged him further into addiction and several prison stints.

"Hammer used to come and bail me when I was arrested. Sometimes he when can't come, he sends me a helper," the embattled rapper hailed his boss and legendary producer, Hammer.

Agbeko expressed his interest in taking up his music career where he left off. He begged assistance to rehabilitate and return to his dream of making music again.

In his active years, the musician featured Sarkodie on his critically acclaimed single, Lay Low and was tipped to be one of the promising rappers from the Volta Region.

Again, we have another disappointed artiste who should at least have a consistent income stream from the several hit songs he churned out. Unfortunately, all we can count on is sympathy from his peers or any good Samaritan. There is a lesson for him and all young musicians coming up.
