The mother of Ghana’s Rockstar, Kuami Eugene, Juliana Marfo, has confirmed that Kofi Boakye is indeed the biological father of the musician.
Speaking in a new video seen by YEN.com.gh, Kuami Eugene’s mother narrated what happened for her to ‘bolt’ with the boy to Accra from the village where they lived.
According to her, after the birth of Kuami Eugene, his father was never responsible and left them to go be with his other wife whose name was given as Naomi.
She rubbished claims by Kofi Boakye that he travelled to Akwatia to do galamsey in order to get money for the family.
Kuami Eugene’s mother said the man simply went to stay with his other wife and paid no attention to them at all, leaving them to starve.
Unable to bear the situation anymore, Madam Marfo said she took the decision to relocate to Accra with her infant Kuami Eugene to seek greener pastures.
She stressed that it was almost like Kofi Boakye never knew the boy, and if not for his status now and his appearance on television, he would not have recognised him.
Madam Marfo also disputed comments by some people that Kofi Boakye was not the biological father of Kuami Eugene, stating he is indeed the musician's father.
She said Boakye has grown-up sons and so he definitely could father Kuami Eugene.
Meanwhile, Boakye said he is dying of high blood pressure after many attempts to get in touch with his son proved futile.
He has begged Kuami Eugene and the mother to put the past behind them and come to his rescue.
Kofi Boakye has made some revelations about Kuami Eugene’s real name and age since he first popped up.
