His students were pleased with Worlasi’s involvement, so he said, “I’ll also be relying on him for additional engagements in this manner.” He said, “We have done similar things with Kojo Cue, Poetra Asantewa, and Reggie Rockstone,” according to a classfmonline story.

Worlasi, a student at Takoradi Technical University, claims that prior to beginning his musical career, he was a “Back in college, I was asked to be a teaching assistant (TA), but I couldn’t because of music. I desired to return to Accra and begin performing music. I kind of said no.”
