The “Angela” crooner has however come out to disclose that he said that as a joke.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Kuami Eugene stated that he knew people were going to jump on the opportunity to roast him.
“I mean I know googling the price of the shoe is just a text away, but the fact that I’m playing and people actually think, we can use this to pin him down…” Kuami Eugene stated.
He also told Merqury Quaye, host of the show, that of all the things he posted on his social media handles, it was the shoe joke that trended.
Kuami Eugene added that he was expecting to see the video of Rex Omar singing his song trending on social media.
“The old school is singing the new school Highlife,” he said.
Kuami Eugene said he, however, trended for a long time on Twitter not for his Rex Omar video but for the price of a Zara shoe.
“Even my video got some bloggers together because bloggers were commenting under each other’s post and everyone wanted to put their tag on it so that it looks like they caught me first in a lie,” he added.
The ‘Obiaato’ singer said the obsession of readers to focus more on bad news has created a society where the up and coming acts would have to do something to trend.
“If a new actress/singer wants to emerge [make waves] she has to do a 30 minutes naked video on Instagram to get attention because when she showcases her talent you won’t listen to it,” he added.
