“I can’t go and buy Waakye [boiled rice and beans] again, at least not like I used to before. Someone has to go buy it for me and I can’t also walk around like a regular human being anymore,” he told Lexis Bill.

“One time a lady saw me and she started crying. You don’t have to see me and start crying, I’m human but that only shows I’m not normal as I used to be,” he added.

King Promise also added that he has received his own share of untrue stories since he came into the limelight.

“One time there was news I was in a particular club when I was home. There have been rumours of me with ladies and many other things that are not true,” he added.

King Promise is having a great year so far, his debut album, “As Promised” is doing so well on all music streaming platforms.
