My mother reported me to Police for pursuing music –Pat Thomas

Legend Ghanaian highlife musician, Pat Thomas has revealed how his mother reported him to the police for pursuing a career in music.

In an interview on Citi TV’s entertainment and lifestyle show ‘Upside Down,’ Pat Thomas revealed that he decided to leave school in Techiman to pursue his dream of becoming a musician.

Ironically, his mother, who was also a musician, was not happy with his decision and reported him to the police.

The most intense moment of the interview came when the legendary singer revealed that, while he regrets not taking his education more seriously, his decision to pursue a career in music has ultimately been a successful one.

He is currently considered as one of Ghana’s most successful Highlife musicians, releasing hit songs such as ‘Sika Ye Mogya’ and ‘Mewo Akoma.’
