The reigning VGMA Artiste of the Year, Kuami Eugene, has opened up on the passionate prayer he made to God about his mother.
He said he begged God to use him to be the one taking his mother out of poverty because he could not look on to the condition in which they lived by then.
Growing up in Fandama, one of Accra’s slums, Kuami Eugene said his mother sold small provisions to make ends meet and take care of them.
Presently, the musician says he sees that God has answered his prayers and he is very much grateful to Him.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com.
According to Kuami Eugene, he could not see himself getting to 30 before helping his mother, Juliana Marfo, out of poverty because it would be too late since she would have been 50 by then.
This, he said, motivated him to make that solemn prayer to God.
Kuami Eugene has carved a niche for himself after storming the music industry with his debut Angela about three years ago.
He has not rested on his laurels as he has churned out massive hit songs after Angela.
The youngest musician alive to have won the Artiste of the Year has also signed on to many lucrative deals as an ambassador.
He is also enjoying a measure of luxury as he drove in his Range Rover to buy waakye as published earlier by YEN.com.gh.
Though many people have criticised him saying he did not deserve his recent award, Kuami Eugene has given reasons why nobody else could have won it but him.
