Fast rising female dancehall artiste Ebony after two years of studying at Methodist Girls’ SHS decided to say goodbye to school all because she wanted to focus on music.
The ‘Poison’ hitmaker has refuted claims that she was dismissed from school. Speaking to MzGee of Hitz FM, she asked Ghanaians never to believe any story that says authorities of her former school sacked her because of her bad behaviour.
Giving reasons why she left the school during her second year, Ebony disclosed that she convinced her father why he needed to allow her to start music and forgo school. According to the dancehall artiste, the thousand and one reasons she gave daddy years ago went into his good ears and that made him give her the go ahead to pack all her bags from Methodist Girls’ SHS and take music seriously.
She continued that most people attend school to gain knowledge and earn income so she has not regretted dropping out of school since music can fetch her income more than what school would have given her of she had continued.
“Why do we go to school? We go to school to be intellectuals and also to get an income and music can equally do the same things for me. If I’ll be going back to school then I’ll continue what I already know but not for income because music is already doing that.
I’ve never been dismissd from any school before. I was very stubborn but I was never sacked. I sat my dad down and told him this is what I wanted to do. I told him I want to do music and he understood me. He was like they have always known I was going to do music so they have no problem but I should promise them I will go back to school in future” Ebony told MzGee.
