Ghanaian gospel sensation Diana Asamoah has shared insights into her journey before achieving fame as a musician.

In an interview on Hitz FM's Daybreak Hitz morning show, hosted by Andy Dosty, Diana Asamoah disclosed that her career took a different turn.

Contrary to her father's desire for her to become a seamstress, she found herself in the field of education after completing her elementary education in 1987.

Diana Asamoah recounted, "When I completed school, my father wanted me to learn how to sew clothes in Kumasi, but he had not bought the sewing machine and other things I needed at that time.

“So, I thought of selling beans, soap, and other items. However, he did not like the idea of me moving around people’s houses to sell. He feared that I could be raped."

Faced with this dilemma, Asamoah made a decision to become a pupil teacher at St Monica’s School.

Diana Asamoah, though not proficient in English, according to her, taught various subjects, including English, Geography, Twi, and others.

Despite the challenges, she expressed pride in her teaching career, emphasizing that none of the pupils she taught during her time at St Monica’s School failed in their examinations.
