Funny Face makes new promise to Ghanaians

Speaking to broadcaster NYDJLive on YFM 102.5, Funny Face established that he owed his resurgence to the consistent support from Ghanaians, even after his legal woes and several disappointing moments.

"I will never disappoint Ghanaians again. I am not going back to say certain things I said before or did some years back," Funny Face promised as he expressed his readiness to leverage his experience to help others battling mental health issues.
