He disclosed that he has lived with his mother and father since he was a child and so for the media to give attention to someone he knows from nowhere claiming to be his father is disappointing.

Kuami Eugene also described the whole thing as an insult to his parents, reiterating that the media and those spreading that rumour are being insensitive.

He added that the man keeps making those claims because some people somewhere might be encouraging him to do that, while the media keep granting him the platform to make more views.

The said Kofi Boakye was in the news claiming that the musician’s name is not Kwame but Kofi, adding that he named his ‘son’ after himself.

According to him, Kuami Eugene’s mother absconded with him to Accra when he was very little and they lived in Oda.

He said he had informed the musician’s mother that he was going to seek greener pastures in a nearby town only for him to return to meet their absence.

Boakye was also in the news recently when he claimed that despite the effort to reach out to his ‘son’, Kuami Eugene kept neglecting him and would not even answer his calls.
