Patoranking explains how Dollars hindered him from going to University in Ghana


Nigerian music star Patoranking explained how dollars hindered him from going to university in Ghana, during his uni days.

The Airste said, he gained admission to one of the University in Ghana but he had to leave it because international students have to pay in dollars.

He said his father couldn’t afford his fees as he had younger ones who needed secondary school education as well.

During an interview on Hitz FM, he revealed that he gained admission to the University of Cape Coast but couldn’t proceed because the fees for international students like himself were paid in dollars at that time.

“Back then at the University of Cape Coast, international students were charged in dollars,” Patoranking said.

What Patoranking’s father told him:
The singer who said he was excited about the admission got a different response from his father when he broke the news to him on a phone call. Patoranking said his father’s reply wasn’t what he expected, as he said he couldn’t afford it. According to the singer, his father said:

“My son, I know this is where you want to further your education at UCC, but you have siblings. It will be nice to allow them have a taste of secondary education.

“The Nigerian singer said at that point, he knew he had to man up not just for himself but for his family, which made him venture into music.”
