He disclosed that he was unable to continue his education to the tertiary level because he was unable to afford the fees at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ).
 
He said: “I completed Tema Secondary school and I got admission to GIJ but couldn’t continue due to finances. Anytime they came to school to sack the people who haven’t paid their fees, I got sacked, every term I got sacked. They only time I wasn’t sacked was because they got the names missed up.”
