Talented young musician Kuami Eugene is a Ghanaian highlife and Afrobeat singer and songwriter signed to Lynx Entertainment.
In an interview with Doreen Avio on Let’s Talk Showbiz on JoyNews, the ‘Walahi’ hitmaker noted that his life was challenging until he had his breakthrough in the music industry.
According to him, he keeps his old photos of him as a reminder of where he came from and how he’s struggled to make it to the top.
Recounting how tough life was, he revealed that has pictures of himself sweating in his mum’s kitchen, pictures of him in a studio with a leaking roof and an old analogue TV which he kept by his bed.
“We didn’t have good roofing so every time the sun is out, you could see it through different holes in the roof, my studio didn’t have a fence so people could see what I did from outside. There was so much noise every time I had to record something, God has been good to me,” he said.
“The Kuami Eugene you see here, my life has been beautiful, whatever I touch turns into Gold and I didn’t see myself getting here,” he added.
The singer, who turned 22 on February 1, has been churning out hits after hits and currently has an album, ‘Rockstar’, to his credit.
Kuami Eugene originally known as Eugene Kwame Marfo was born to Alex and Juliana Marfo in Oda, Ghana on 1st February 1997.
