Multiple award-winning Ghanaian singer, Kuami Eugene, says he will be pursuing politics soon after attaining 30 years old.
The ‘Dollar On You’ hit singer said he possesses leadership traits and wouldn’t hesitate to accept any government appointment to serve the people and deliver to their satisfaction.
“It’s always my job to put smiles on peoples’ faces so being a leader is an opportunity to help people,” he said.
He added “It’s there. I think after thirty (30) years I will start embarking on politics.”
Sitting down with Metro TV’s Nana Yaa Tanoah Boakye on Friday’s edition of the Playlist music and entertainment talk show, Kuami Eugene, born Eugene Kwame Marfo said, he will go back to his root to represent his people as a legislator.
“Probably, an MP for my hometown, Akim Oda in the Eastern Region,” he hinted at his political ambitions.
The 23-year-old singer if he proceeds with his dream wouldn’t be the first Ghanaian showbiz personality to venture into politics.
In recent times, entertainers including; musician Kwame Asare Obeng known by his moniker, A Plus, actress Ebi Bright, actor John Dumelo, media personality Kwame Dzokoto, singer Diamond Appiah, actor Clement Bonney famously called Mr. Beautiful among others have tried a career in politics.
Away from that, the singer who’s known for songs like ‘Confession’, ‘Wish Me Well’, Angela’, ‘Open Gate’, ‘Dollar On You’, ‘Fadama’ just to mention a few, Kuami Eugene said he would have become a farmer if he wasn’t a musician.
According to the Akim Oda native singer, he takes delight in satisfying the demands of the belly, and being a farmer would offer him the glorious opportunity to eradicate hunger through the provision of his farm foods to the people.
“It’s always my job to put smiles on people’s faces… Being a farmer is also an opportunity to put food on the tables of people,” he said on Metro TV on Friday, May 28, 2021.
