Speaking in an interview with Okay FM, Joyce Blessing thanked Akrobeto for convincing her to stay in Ghana and continue her music career because it has helped her to become who she is today.
“I was not joking when I hinted at leaving the country. But since we are humans certain things will get to you. There was one person who sat me down and advised me against the idea of leaving the country.
“That person is Akrobeto, he told me to ‘discard the idea of discontinuing my music career and leave the country for abroad. Because he once traveled and when he came to Ghana what God has done for him exceeds the opportunities he had abroad’. I don’t know what he saw though but he convinced me to stay in Ghana,” she said.
