Popular Ghanaian musician Kuami Eugene, in a conversation with Naana Donkor Arthur, addressed the criticism of his fashion choices, explaining that his humble beginnings have shaped his priorities.
Eugene revealed that he hails from a financially disadvantaged background. He emphasised that spending extravagantly on expensive designer clothing was never his focus, and he had solid reasons for his choices.
Growing up, my family faced financial challenges. We didn't have much, Eugene shared. So, when I found success in the music industry, my priority was not to spend on fancy dresses.
Eugene disclosed that his mother and siblings still resided in a modest one-bedroom apartment in Fadama, even as his fame and fortune grew. He explained that it made it impractical for him to allocate substantial resources to expensive clothes.
