Gospel artist Eko Dydda has revealed that at some point during his high school study period, he was learning in a girls’ school.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Eko Dydda said that he went to Riverside Girls’ High School for one and half years, being the only male student at the school.
“I first joined Eastleigh High School but was unable to continue with my studies there. I had to join Riverside Girls’ High School where I studied with girls for one and half years,” he said.
The Nina One hit maker revealed that financial constraints left him with few options that included joining the girl’s day school, where he was allowed to pay half the school fees.
“I had challenges paying school fees and that is why I left Eastleigh in the first place. When I approached a teacher from Riverside High School, I was offered a chance to learn by paying half my fee,” he said.
The hit maker asserted that studying with girls helped shape his career as it raised a bold artist from his previous shy personality.
“The fact that I was a very shy boy made my life at Riverside High very challenging. But with time, I was able to shed off the shyness,” Eko Dydda told Kenyans.co.ke.
Dydda’s revelation come two months after the gospel artist survived a grisly accident when a lorry rammed into his car, causing it to roll severally.
In the December incident, the Me and My House singer escaped with minor injuries, prompting his fans to flood messages of goodwill all over social media.
