Reggae Dancehall musician, Samini, Dagaati has revealed that he was one of the fastest sprinters in Greater Accra during his high school days.
Despite his football prowess, Samini picked athletics as his favorite sport at a young age. He stated that throughout his stay at Accra High School, he represented his school in short sprint races and consistently finished first.
Speaking on Angel FM, he reminisced, “When I was a student, I had a passion for athletics. Those who knew me during my time at Holy Family in Mataheko were aware that I was an athlete. Unfortunately, the Senior High School I attended was new, so I couldn’t pursue athletics there.”
Samini went on to say that he routinely competed in 100-meter, 200-meter, and 4×100 relay competitions, and he was frequently among the top finishers, winning nine out of ten occasions.
He even made the Greater Accra shortlist for the 100-meter event shortly after graduating from Junior High School.
Samini Dagaati recently graduated from GIMPA’s Greenhill Campus, where he also served as president of the student representative council (SRC).
