I SOLD CHARCOAL, PORRIDGE, BEANS TO PAY MY SCHOOL FEES – Celestine Donkor

According to gospel singer Celestine Donkor, she had to sell food items as well as other goods like charcoal and oatmeal to pay for her education.

Celestine Donkor has discussed some of the hardships she faced as a child, including how she had to engage in street selling in order to survive.

The gospel singer claimed that her parents turned to street hawking because they lacked the resources to support the entire family.

Speaking in an interview on Prime Morning on Joy Prime, Celestine recounted saying, “at a point, we had to survive by ourselves at a very young age; you have to think of paying your fees.”

“So, when you come back from school, you need to think of what to sell and how to raise money for the following morning. I’ve sold corn, charcoal, ‘kookoo’ (porridge),” she recalled.

“As a young girl, one of the prayers I constantly prayed and asked God was, ‘Why didn’t you bless my parents to take care of me? It was a prayer I always prayed in a deep place.

“I don’t understand why my parents are alive and I have to still be like an orphan in someone’s house. It is different when your parents are dead,” the celebrated singer explained.
