Adjetey Sowah: I regret not taking education seriously

Adjetey Sowah came to the limelight at a very young age when, in 1986, he became the only Ghanaian and the first African to win the World Dance championships

The former world dance champion Adjetey Sowah has said he regrets not putting his education first as he was building his career.

Adjetey came to the limelight at a very young age when he became the first Ghanaian to win the World Dance championships in the UK in 1986.

“I didn’t take my education serious, which I regret, but apart from that everything is great,” he told Kwaku Nhyira-Addo, who was hosting the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (19 July 2023).

“It’s in the blood: my father used to be a rocknroll dancer back in the 1960s. I realised I could dance when I was in school, Lincoln International School, around Class Five. I was leading a traditional dance group and I realised I could do it,” Adjetey Sowah said.

Sowah added: “A Teshie guy is always a Teshie guy, if you know what you want and you want to achieve it, you have to focus. With determination, you’ll get there.”
