The musician, who lost both parents at age one, said he lacked a lot of things because times were hard.
“I didn’t have anything. Sometimes I borrowed stuffs from friends and then I put them on and other people see me and they feel I had money…,” he told Mamavi Owusu-Aboagye in an interview on the AM Show on JoyNews TV, Friday.
Asked some of the things he borrowed, the ‘Nothing I Get’ hit singer said, “I borrow shoes, jeans, chains and things…”
After hitting the limelight, Fameye said there has been some significant improvement in his finances.
“Right now I (sic) come get something [money] small so I don’t borrow those things again…,” he said.
He explained that he did not really take music seriously till he saw his “junior Medikal going higher” and he decided to venture into full time.
Fameye, born Peter Famiyeh Bozah, revealed that he had a lot of songs but “it was this song [‘Nothing I Get’] that brought me to the limelight.”
‘Nothing I Get’, he said, is based on his struggles in life and that of others.
Aside from music, Fameye is also an actor and he has starred in a number of productions.
