Ghanaian Hiplife Musician, Nana Kweku Okyere Duah popularly known as TiC and formerly Tic Tac have joined the world in celebrating fathers.
Father’s Day is a special day in the year for honoring fatherhood and parenthood bonds as well as the influence of fathers in society.
Tic has shared on his social media handles a memorable story that happened while he was young.
The memorable story has been sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh on his handles in which the Hiplife music celebrates his Dad after narrating from his infancy.
Below reads his story;
One day my dad told me not to climb a tree in front of our house because it was quite big and he feared that I may fall and hurt myself but you know what I believed in my skills so I did not listen to him.
As soon as he drove out, I stepped out to play with my friends and guess what? I climbed that same tree I was asked not to.
So whiles on the tree playing, I saw my dad’s car approaching from far, quickly I got down from the tree, opened the gate for him thinking he did not see me.
He parked the car and headed straight to his room.
I thought I had outplayed him and that everything was under control not knowing he saw me but did not utter a word and was just waiting for me to get into the bathroom to bath.
As soon I began bathing my dad popped in with his belt, “come and see beatings”, in fact, I really felt it, so from that day I never went contrary to anything my dad said.
Today I am a full-grown man doing my own thing thank you Mr. Emmanuel Kwaku Duah (Rt. Lieutenant Commander).
I celebrate you today as we celebrate all father around the globe. Happy Fathers Day!
