Multiple award-winning Lynx Entertainment signee, Kuami Eugene has in an interview thrown light on his teenage days and how his father decided not to support him any more during his junior high school days.
In an exclusive interview with Stacy Amoateng via the Restoration show, Eugene Marfo disclosed that his dad’s decision to not spend a penny of his money on him was due to his stubbornness.
“With my other siblings, he was supporting, but when it comes to myself, my dad stopped supporting me when I was in JHS because I’m not the kind he thought would bring something better [out],” he said.
According to Kuami Eugene, his pursuit of “something else” outside academics made his dad lose hope in him.
“The whole family was clever. Me, I’m clever but I want to chase something else. I’m too stubborn… My dad lost hope in me when I was very young. I was like 13,” Kuami Eugene said on Restoration with Stacy.
Surprisingly, Kuami Eugene asserted that despite overhearing his father tell his mom he won’t take care of him anymore, it didn’t make him change course for what he was after in life.
“I was stubborn, and to emphasize, I was raised in Fadama (a suburb of Accra), so my level of stubbornness was high and you need to be a tough mom to be able to handle me.
“You need to be somebody who never gives up to handle me because I was really stubborn. So I don’t blame my dad sometimes, perhaps he just couldn’t handle it anymore.”
He said, his mother never left his side in the phase of his father not taking care of him anymore.
Speaking about his mom, Kuami Eugene stated that his mom means a lot to him. He recounted how his mother became famous in their vicinity because she always moved from one game centre to another looking for him.
“My mum means a lot to me. I owe her. Whoever I am today, she had to put me here and I learned a lot from her,” he added.
