The ‘wey tin no be Koko for my God’ crooner in an interview on YFM has disclosed that he was a worker at Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs but he sacrificed it to follow his passion even though he had the opportunity to climb the ladder in the Ministry.
“When I finished school, I was pushed into the ministry of Foreign Affairs and I didn’t have fun doing it. So I quit. I worked at the Ministry for two years so I was on my way to becoming a minster or an ambassador but it wasn’t my vibe,” the rapper said.
Speaking to Rev. Erskine on the Myd Morning Radio Show he detailed that “back then they knew I was deep into making music because as I was in the office, I had my headphones and I was always writing the lyrics“.
E.L added that “I always wanted to be in the studio. There was just something about recording songs that I needed to do so at a point I just quit my job and said to myself that I can’t do it and that is when I joined Jay Foley in the studio”.
The multitalented Ghanaian musician concluded that “If I don’t enjoy it, I’m not doing it”.
E.L real name Elorm Adabla has indeed achieved a lot with his music career. He churned out hit songs such as ‘Kaalu’, ‘Kooko’, ‘Auntie Martha’, and was also a contributor to one of Sarkodie’s breakthrough songs when he featured on ‘Dangerous’.
