- The highlife artiste, who just received the highly-coveted title, said this as part of his acceptance speech after being declared the winner
- Kuami Eugene also used the opportunity to thank everyone who helped him in one way or another
Kuami Eugene, the winner of the Artiste of the Year award at the just-ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2020, has said that he did not expect to get this far.
Rockstar, as he is also affectionately called, made this statement in his acceptance speech after he was declared the winner of the highly-coveted title.
According to Kuami Eugene, he comes from humble beginnings in Fadama and Akim-Oda, and back then, prospects of one day becoming Artist of the Year in Ghana were dim.
Watch the video below:
In his own words, "thank you so much to every Ghanaian out there for supporting the Kuami Eugene project. From Fadama, I did not expect this, charle. I'm not joking".
The Artiste of the Year Winner went a step further to thank some entities who greatly contributed to his success,
"Thank you so much, Richie Mensah, I will never forget this. God bless you, Lynx Entertainment. And my mother, wherever you find yourself, I have made it."
