The celebrity status comes with all of the lavishing treats, coupled with the glitz and glamour but then again, being a public figure has its own downsides.
It also means you don’t get to do many of the things you could do when you were a mere person. That is what King Promise is battling with. He says he does not get to just walk on the street and do his favourite thing as a typical person does because of his status, even getting himself waakye.
“It’s like you don’t own yourself anymore. 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.
“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. 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.
