Diana Asamoah, a Ghanaian gospel performer, recently shared a revelation that has some music enthusiasts talking.
The gospel singer claims that she was a teacher once, despite the fact that she has always presented herself as illiterate.
She stated that after completing elementary school in 1987, she was inspired to become a teacher by her father, who was a teacher, in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hit FM’s morning programme, Daybreak Hitz.
“You know, in those days, they employed pupil teachers. When I completed school my father wanted me to learn how to sew clothes in Kumasi but he had not bought the sewing machine and other things I needed at that time so I thought of selling beans, soap and other items. However, he did not like the idea of me moving around people’s houses to sell. He feared that I could be raped.”
“He then told me that a pupil teacher at Saint Monica’s school was going for further studies at the training college so I should go and replace the teacher for the time being. When they noticed that I was doing well, they made me a ‘substitute teacher’ for every teacher that was absent,” she noted.
When asked what subjects she taught, she said that she taught geography, English language, and any other topic that the school taught.
She reported that none of the students she taught performed poorly during exams.
In recent years, Diana Asamoah has gained notoriety for her comedic qualities in addition to her evangelical music.
Despite her limited English proficiency, she frequently creates English terms that become viral as humorous content.
Diana Asamoah’s hit song “Ma Bo Wo Din” has a remix out right now.
