Nigerian artist Patoranking has explained why he was unable to enroll at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana despite having been accepted.
He claimed that, in contrast to the students in his community, he was charged in dollars.
Speaking after his visit to Ghana on Hitz FM. Patoranking claimed he did not get why fees for international students had to be paid in US dollars.
According to Patoranking, the costs were outrageous given the current currency rate.
But the singer was unaware that the payments would have an effect on his enrollment, his chances for a future career, and his physical development.
“Back then at the University of Cape Coast, international students were charged in dollars,”
His father asked him to let go of his plans of attending UCC after he had reached him.
“My son, I know this is what you want – to further your education at UCC, but you have siblings. It will be nice to have them have a taste of secondary education.”
Since Patroranking was unable to attend UCC, he was given the chance to rediscover himself and utilize his singing potential, which ultimately contributed to the development of who he is now.
