I Aimed At Getting A Good Place For My Mum To Stay; Not To Impress Others Over My Fashion Sense – Kuami Eugene
Ghanaian musician, Kuami Eugene, has talked about how he was mocked over his fashion sense some years ago.
Eugene was heavily criticized over how he was dressing when started his music career.
Speaking via a Twitter space with Sincerely Accra Podcast, the ‘Single’ composer said he aimed at getting a good place for his mother to stay.
According to him, he was not thinking about impressing others over his fashion sense.
He revealed that things were difficult at home when he ventured into music.
“When I came to Lynx Entertainment, trust me, I actually had nothing. My parents didn’t have money and you can’t compare me to some artiste I came with because they were living in their parent’s house. My mum, my dad, my siblings, and myself were living in a rented apartment. It wasn’t okay for all of us.
“The time everybody was talking about my shoes and dress, trust me, I was trying to put things together. The things these other artiste had to go to the boutique to put together, I had to go to Kantamanto… so you can’t compare the two of us. People will say these things without knowing my pocket,” the Lynx Entertainment artiste revealed.
Kuami Eugene further stated: “The first thing I was thinking of was to find a good place for my mum to stay…I wasn’t thinking of what to wear but how to fix my mum’s life because the English I am speaking today is because she put me through good education. I had to find somewhere better for her to stay before thinking of putting on a Louis Vuitton or a nice t-shirt that will cost like GH200. It was too much for me back then.”
