Benjamin recently shared his sad life story in an interview with Zion Felix.
According to Benjamin, when he was very young, there was a conflict between his mum and his rich dad. The conflict resulted in separation between his mum and his dad. According to Benjamin, his dad took him and his senior brother to his Aunt’s place. Benjamin stated that life was very tough there for him.
In the interview, Benjamin stated that his dad just came one day and took him and his brother in a car and just dropped them in a children’s home which was closer to a bush at that time. His father left them and told them he will come for them but never returned.He left the children’s home to his mum but his brother went back to their dad at Tema. Living with his mum, stepfather and stepsister, life was frustrating which made his mum aked wether he was interested in a boarding school. Benjamin agreed but he stated that her mum landed her in another orphanage home which was at Nsawam. He said that, the life there was very bad because most of them were gä.y and it was because the former supervisor in the house was in that act. According to Benjamin, life there was so uncomfortable that one day he was locked in a room by one of his Seniors who wanted to chop him. Benjamin said that it was only tears that saved him at that time. In the Orphanage Home, his mum came for a visit where he told her about the horrible experience and even added that, if she doesn’t pick him out from the place, he will die but his mum just told him to hold on for sometime.
As he got to JHS, he left the children’s home and headed to his step dad’s place in a nearby village because most of his friends in the children’s home were into g.ãy. He had a friend in JHS who introduced him to his mum and that gave him an advantage of eating in their house whenever he pays a visit. He completed JHS successfully with a promise from one of his Uncles who was a lawyer that when he gets a better result, he will get the rest of his education sponsored. He completed school and left for his Dad’s house in Tema. After the results came, he went to his uncle’s place with his father because he passed as his uncle was expecting.
According to Benjamin, his uncle fulfilled his promise by giving them money for his Secondary School education. Benjamin stated that his father took the money from him but never sponsored his education. He reported this to his mum and his mum didn’t take it cool with him. After sometime, he went back to his mum and begged her to just drop him into the secondary school and leave him.Her mum did her best and he was lucky to get a support from his stepfather. His stepfather Paid his fees for two terms and left him but God being so good, he had a support from his Senior brother who had then started hustling till he completed.
After school, life became so tough that he one day drunk poison but woke up the next morning just to feel some discomfort in his stomach. He went to private and his health came back to normal. He called a friend and told her about it. His friend told him that he didn’t die because God had a better plan for him. Benjamin stated that from there, life has been cool for him till date. He said he is gradually improving as he is growing. That was a story from Benjamin in an interview with Blogger Zion Felix.
