Even though public figures are expected to be seen wearing outfits and accessories, made by notable designers, singer Fameye says blending the fake with the original makes him happy.
He made this revelation on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Monday.
“I dey wear some things right now, some be original, some be fake. But the fact that some be original and some be fake for inside dey make I dey feel good,” he told Andy Dosty in Pidgin.
The ‘Praise’ hitmaker went on to state that he knows the difference between fake and genuine things but he wears both regardless.
When asked whether he resorted to fake/cheap clothing because he couldn’t afford to buy the original, he said: “God has blessed me now. I have been able to acquire certain things through God’s blessings and that alone amazes me.”
Be that as it may, the VGMA ‘Songwriter of the Year’ warned that he wouldn’t take it lightly when he is accused of wearing fake stuff when they are original.
“Supposing I am wearing something original and someone says it is fake, I will stand for my right and set the records straight,” said the ‘Mati’ hitmaker.
“If I am wearing a sweatshirt that costs €20 (GHC165), I will let you know the exact price—and you would have to believe me.”
He continued, “This gold chain on my neck is authentic. Therefore, when I mention the price to you, you’d have to believe me because I am telling you the truth.”
Being the only artiste to openly declare that he sometimes wears “fake” stuff, Fameye stated that he does so to please himself.
