Gospel musician Michael Oware Sakyi popularly OJ has revealed that he failed mathematics exams multiple times during his school years.
Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, OJ, said while growing up he realised that his strength was in reading subjects while mathematics was a challenge for him.

“I decided to read books, get into philosophy and things that will enhance the sharpness of my gift,” he added.
