KK Kabobo’s music journey began when he joined a band very early in life when he fostered the passion to do music. He had to work as a student teacher to support himself.

“I became a pupil teacher because I had no money to continue my education, so the schoolmaster I was staying with applied for that job for me,” Kabobo disclosed.

Later, he was employed by the Methodist Educational Unit and started teaching at New Edubiase Methodist Primary School in 1976.

Kabobo played with various bands such as Sidiku Buari Express, Ampofo Aburi, and F. Michaels Band.

In any case, his definitive goal was to become a studio artists, so he decided to pursue a solo career after about 18 months of playing with different bands.

“After one year, when the bands I was playing with were not recording, I moved on,” Kabobo said at the time.

He wanted to focus on his passion for creating music in the studio, which led him to embark on his solo journey.
