Talented and versatile singer and songwriter Lasmid has recounted his days of hustle before becoming a musician.
The “Friday Night” hitmaker recently revealed on Onua FM that he used to be a mechanic “Fita” before venturing into music full-time.
The singer stated that his journey to music began when he was studying to become a mechanic, but his passion for music kept driving him, so he resigned to chase his ambition.
“I was a mechanic, “Fita” apprentice ( auto electronics) but I was unable to complete it. I was trained for a period between three to six months but I realized that my destiny was in music so I had to stop. The errands too were a lot,”
Although he quit halfway through the training, he still has some expertise in the field should he be guided by a pro.
“I learned a lot of things so I can determine a fault in that regard but would have to get someone to do the fixing after I have identified the problem,” he stated.
He further added that was not pressured to study the trade by his guardians but by his will to give it a go and started the training which he did in Takoradi
“I wasn’t forced to learn the job but I wasn’t willing to do so. It was more like I was at home doing nothing. No one forced me. After a lot of thinking, I realized I had done a lot of difficult tasks before so this was no different; it was normal. I learned the trade at Takoradi,”
Lasmid has said he has no regret for quitting his training to pursue music because it has been worth it.
