Ghanaian singer, King Promise, has opened up about his fashion sense that always sparks controversies on social media.

In a recent interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM, the 'Ginger' hitmaker noted that he is a sucker for good fashion. However, he always seems to get caught up in the web of Ghanaian critics.
