Afropop/Afrobeats sensation from Ghana Kuami Eugene has allayed his biggest fear as an artist.
He says that things are going well for him and he has great fame which he fears losing because it is his sense of identity.
The award-winning crooner who also does highlife music says he has worked tirelessly and diligently to make a name for himself in and out of Ghana. Thus, the last thing he would ever trade is the big name people know him for.
“My greatest fear is to wake up one morning and realise I’m not this rockstar. Imagine I wake up and go to the mall, and nobody says ‘Rockstar.’ I will ask myself if I didn’t sleep well. I mean, I get people asking me; don’t you get tired when people are on your leg everywhere? You don’t get to come to stand in a queue like us anymore? I tell them it’s my job,” he told Joy Prime’s The Doreen Avio Show.
Eugene who won the 2020 Artiste of the Year in the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards also touched off a fierce debate saying that money can get him fame
He reasoned that an artist at whatever level without money can never be famous; therefore, he works to get more of it so as to safeguard his fame by every means.
“The money can give me fame,” he added.
