The popular female musician has disclosed how civil war in Liberia had a massive negative effect in her family in the early 90s.
“My mum is a Ghanaian, my father is a South African. They met in Liberia when my mum went to Liberia to work. My father was in exile in Liberia because it was apartheid and his father was in government.
He had to go somewhere to seek for asylum because if he had stayed in South Africa a little longer, I don’t think he would have lived long. That’s how he met my mum, she said.
Speaking on ” Restoration” with Stacy show, the ace highlife musician confirmed that she was born in October, the war broke out a month or two later. By 1990, we came to Ghana.
“I was not even a year old when my mum brought me to Ghana. My father was a doctor and was working in a different region in Liberia so when the war broke out, it was hard for my mum to go to where my mum was”
“My tried many times to go to where my dad was but it was very risky to go because the rebels were in the street. They would stop you, when they set eye on you and ask you to dance around with your naked body”
At a point where my mum realized it was not safe anymore, she decided to come to Ghana and that made her loose contact with my dad.
The most reason why my mum relocated to Ghana was due to fear of death after having a tip off that the rebels were going to blast the place the next morning.
Several years later, we received letters from my father in quest to communicate to the family. As one who held never met my father before, I held the letters dearly.
When I grew up, my mum told me my dad was from South Africa but I didn’t know he was dead. I got to know he was dead when I visited a cafe one day and found it on the internet.
Currently my mother is affected by Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) She doesn’t like to watch movies that have guns because she actually saw people shot and killed during the war.
