Controversial Ghanaian Boxer Braimah Kamoko, a.k.a Bukom Banku has said he’s going back to school.
Kamoko, who dropped out of school to pursue a career in boxing, Tuesday told Jay Foley and Jeremie on LIVE FM’s morning show Live Breakfast Club that after achieving considerable fame and fortune from the trade, he was now ready to go back to school.
“I am going back to school; I am going to Accra Royal in Jamestown and ready to start from Form 1. Education is very important and i don’t joke with that. I admire people who pursue education and that is what I want to do.”
Kamoko has been in the news lately, largely for his free-for-all social media antics and support for the ruling National Democratic Congress. Often, his clear lack of ample hold of the English is questioned, but also admired in some quarters. The former, he told Jay Foley and Jeremie, he’s ready to make better.
Kamoko has ten children with different women, and has vowed to put them through an appreciable level of education, adding “I don’t want them to become boxers.”
