He said: “It is education. When I see musicians who are graduates, I am proud of them. I like to have PhD too.

“Though my mother was a teacher, she still gave me the freedom to do what I wanted to do. But given another chance, I would like to take education seriously. I would have finished my secondary and university education before going into music.”

He however admitted that it was too late for him to go back to school.

“I have so many people depending on me at the moment,” he added. “Helen Paul and I even talked about it recently and she encouraged me to go back to school. But the truth is that I feel my children will continue from where I stopped.”
