Ghanaian musician Wanluv Kubolor has
disclosed his children’s education is not his
priority as he drags his feet anytime he has to
pay their school fees.
The Kokonsa hit maker, who has eight children
– six biological, one step kid and one adopted
– by different women said he believed children
should just play and play.
Speaking on the Class Drive with Prince
Benjamin on Class91.3FM on Friday 11
November about his family, Wanluv Kubolor
said he considered himself a child as well.
“…I love my children but I’m so much of a
child myself. I’m childlike and so I’m not
serious about certain things that their mothers
are serious about, like school,” he stated.
“I’m not serious about [their] schooling. When
some of the mothers call me and tell me they
need money for school fees, I don’t think of it
as a priority, but I eventually [pay] because
they get stressed out because they say the kids
are sad they are not in school…but I just feel
like: ‘Children should just play and play.’”
The award-winning musician said he did not
believe in formal education because it only
turned people into workers.
“I don’t believe in this system of education
because it just turns you into a worker. It
doesn’t really teach you stuff about life; it just
teaches you how to function in a world that
was recently created by the colonial West so
that you can just keep paying taxes and make
enough money to pay your rent and go to
work the next day,” he noted.
Wanluv Kubolor is arguably the most
revolutionary artist in Ghana, credited with
creating a unique sound that pushes the
borders of Afro-Pop.
