Biography of Lil win

Growing up with six other siblings in a relatively lower-income setting of Kwaman is a hustle on its own. You need to make something out of your life and that something is moving into Kumasi with immediate effect or die trying.

Offinso is the closest you can get – it’s bigger and better than the community at Kwaman but several miles away to Kumasi is definitely your best bet.

Formal education isn’t for everybody but with some, it’s more of a luxury than a necessity. There may be no sponsorship, unlike today that FREE SHS is flying everywhere.

Lil Win completed Junior High School – JSS in Kenyasi Abrem in the Ashanti region but it ended right there. I don’t know whether it was a matter of choice inspired by a well-thought-out plan or just another “wasn’t able to further his education” story of my life.
