Kuami Eugene, a Ghanaian afrobeat and high-life artist, has reflected on the times he promised his mother he would completely change their lives when he was 25.
However, Eugene pointed out that he realized his ambition and promise six years earlier than anticipated when speaking in an interview with Class FM.
“I always had a dream and an ambition. There’s a certain level I should get to. So I’ve dedicated all my life and time to getting to that level.”
“I’m still not there yet, but I’m proud of myself. I mean, I used to tell my mom that by 25, I’d change our lives and I would be driving a car. I got it at age 19,’’ he said.
The multi-award-winning artist rose to fame after joining Richie Mensah’s Lynx Entertainment record label and releasing his Highlife hit Angela, which was produced by Killbeatz.
“At the age of 19 years, I had Angela, and it was banging everywhere—a young boy.’’
“I’m proud of myself. I mean, besides God being on my side, I’ve tried as much as possible to acquire a lot of knowledge about what I am doing today,’’ he asserted.
“When I was in Fadama, I didn’t do a lot of partying or clubbing; I didn’t go out there to go and play and all. It was just to learn, learn, and learn more. I had to learn how to produce, write, mix, master, and edit—I was learning everything that I could get my hands on.’’
He continued, “I think it’s paying off. Besides God being on my side, that’s the reason why I’ve been able to come this far.’’
