Speaking to YEN.com.gh in a WhatsApp conversation to give more details, a source close to the family disclosed that Oppong could not complete junior high school because of social stigma.

''He lives with his mom in a rented house. Their rent is due but they don't have money. Unfortunately, he does not know his father; he is nowhere to be found to help with their situation.''
''Oppong and his mother have moved from different places to their current abode because he had to deal with stigma. People laughed at him because of his condition. He is very shy and lacks confidence.''
