Duncan Mighty halts music career to pursue PhD

Duncan Mighty reveals Wizkid, Burna Boy, others will feature on his upcoming album

After months of being away from the music scene, singer, Duncan Mighty has revealed why he took a break.

Speaking in a recent interview with 3Music TV, Accra, Ghana, Duncan Mighty said he took a sabbatical from music to focus on his education and vowed to get a Doctorate of Philosophy degree.

According to him, he has an MSc in Acoustics from Freiburg University, Germany.

He said

“Taking a break from music wasn’t a difficult decision. Most importantly, you must be able to equip yourself. You must be in charge of your career or business. For me, talent is not enough, music is not enough. 

“I have to back it up with education. Studying in an international community like Freiburg University… It is not an English-speaking university. You had to do Dutch language courses for six months, then you would be admitted to school.

“But I give God praise. I think education is the only thing that remains with you even in old age. So if you cannot go to school when you parents could send, you should go when you can send yourself. That was why I took a break from music. I’m not done with education yet. I must have a PhD.”

Ducan Mighty urged his fellow artists to pursue education with dedication, emphasizing that “talent alone is not sufficient.”

“If you’re not educated, someone is out there waiting to use everything you have made. Be careful, it is not about singing today. It’s called recording business.”
