I didn’t go for my BECE results because I knew I would fail – Obaapa Christy

CHRISTY

Contemporary Ghanaian gospel singer, Christiana Twene, well-known by the stage name Obaapa Christy has recently revealed that she did not bother going for her Basic Education Certificate Examination results after completion.

According to the ‘Hyebre Sesafo’ crooner, she envisioned that she would not pass all the subjects, so she made no effort to return to the school after the results were released.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Roselyn Felli on Joy Prime’s Prime Morning, the gospel music diva said; “I reached JHS, but it’s not that I stopped; I wrote BECE, but I didn’t go for the results.

Responding to whether she passed her exams, Christiana said; “I didn’t even go for it to see whether I passed or not because I foresaw that I wouldn’t pass.

Not that she didn’t study, but the singer held the opinion that even if she did, she would fail because she had nurtured the mindset that she was not good academically, making learning difficult. As a result, she channeled her energy towards singing and praying at school since she enjoyed doing them.

“When we visit a colleague who is sick, then I’m asked to pray, or I’ll be called to lead praise and worship during Wednesday and Friday church services or a teacher would send me to buy something. Those were the things that made me like going to school,” the singer emphasized.

Not only did Obaapa dislike studies, but she mentioned that she also detested dictation sessions in class. Nevertheless, Obaapa Christy feels she would have excelled in her academics if she had positioned her mind to study thoroughly, considering how smart she is at capturing things at her current age.

According to the musician, she does not regret her conduct at school because she believes that education is not the only way to success for everyone. Although she supports formal education, she firmly believes that God’s blessing is the ultimate.

“My success is based on the grace of God that located me, and so I don’t joke with such grace,” she said.
