Ground Up Chale act Quamina MP has disclosed his relationship crushed because he was going through difficult times – so tough that the lady could not stay but leave as several offers came her way.
Born Emmanuel Ato-Kwamena Amonoo, the musician disclosed on the Delay Show that life had always been tumultuous; only getting better after hitting the limelight.
“I had someone I could call a girlfriend. She left me because the gari was too much,” he said. “She was a very nice person; she was beautiful so boys came to her. She couldn’t take the pressure so she left.”
Although he responded in the affirmative when asked whether he still interacts with the ex-girlfriend, the artiste mentioned that he is not ready for a relationship because it’s not a priority.
“Once in a blue moon, I think about her. She even calls me, we talk. Now, I’m thinking about the relationship. I want to really make it in life,” he noted.
Recounting how challenging life has been over the years, Quamina MP said he was so broke he could not afford three square meals a day.
According to him, before he had a hit song that subsequently made him get gigs, he had to manage and spend 20 Ghana cedis a week.
“The way I eat has even changed. At first, having twenty cedis on me for a week was a motivation. I’d buy bread and coffee as breakfast and lunch, and use 3 cedis for kenkey and fish as supper. Now, I don’t even feel hungry. I eat and there’s enough left for tomorrow… I have been able to rent a two-bedroom house,” he said.
Quamina MP became famous in 2018 after he released ‘Wiase Ye De’ which featured Kwesi Arthur and Yung C. His popularity shot up following the release of ‘Feel Okay’ and ‘Amanfour Girls’.
He has performed on a number of big stages including Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) and Ghana Meets Naija.
