So since, the 24th of January 2019, there has being a question trending online; a question so philosophical it demands the indulgence of the entire Ghanaian public; intellectuals, scientists, market women, everyone.
Yesterday, one of the names to mention when you speak of Ghanaian comedy, DKB, on his twitter said, “Sarkodie’s primary school teacher was Grammy nominated Rocky Dawuni wow! No wonder Sark has been chasing Grammy.
Now my question is, who was Patapaa’s primary school teacher?”
Who was Patapaa’s primary school teacher?
Since yesterday there are now officially eight wonders of the world – the world wonders who this “primary teacher” could be. Also, scientists have abandoned their current research into explaining why some people like their own posts. They invested a lot into that research, but nevertheless according to reports, they have agreed that finding the primary school teacher of Patapaa is of much greater importance.
Sci-Fi movie lovers across the world also believe that if we can identify this teacher, we can send people back in time to assassinate them, and hence prevent the influence they had on young Patapaa.
Maybe it was this teacher that told Patapaa he could do anything he wanted to do in life. Maybe Patapaa wanted to become an astronaut but this teacher discouraged him when in response to the question, “what is the ninth planet?”, young Patapaa said earth. If so, the teacher should have been more lenient.
Maybe Ghanaians need to be more lenient, on Patapaa. Why do we keep picking on him?
Well, he did walk out of an award show furious that he didn’t win no award. Thinks he deserves it.
Anyway who was Patapaa’s primary school teacher? Who do you think? King Ayisoba? Appietus? Who could it be?
I mean we could mention King Ayisoba but that man really has put out some good music. “I want to see you my fadei. I want to see you my fadei …” – That was some pretty content filled music. King Ayisoba has a good voice and the international world really loves him.
We could mention Appietus obviously, because the few times we heard him on songs, he was saying nothing. In fact, it’s safe to say that Appietus invented mumble rap. He sure should have been one of Eminem’s diss tracks.
Anyway even though Appietus says nothing, just like Patapaa, as far as music production, Appietus wouldn’t produce songs like one corner. I’m somewhat sure.
Appietus is like the bad pastor who teaches his congregation to do what is good and righteous. He surely couldn’t have taught young Patapaa to do this in the future.
Frankly, it is hard to point out anyone who fits the criteria to have being Patapaa’s primary school teacher; except… except if it was Bukom Banku or Ayitey Powers. Maybe this is more of a Bukom Banku thing; you know nothing is impossible for that man.
So yeah, Bukom Banku was the primary school teacher of Patapaa. The bad english; the “rebel” mindset -definitely Bukom Banku.
In primary school, the statement, “Anything you want if you get, there is no beggars on the road.” inspired young Patapaa, and absolutely changed how he views life. Patapaa particularly idolized his teacher, Bukom Banku, for his insightful quotes.
Now we know where Patapaa gets his style from.
Anway who won’t be motivated to grow up and do a song like “one corner” if they had a teacher make profound statements like: “A Tsetse fly cannot listen to their teaching, is walking to the death man to go cemetery” everyday in class.
