I have been single all my life – King Promise


Rising Ghanaian musician, King Promise, has made a very ‘controversial’ revelation about his relationship status contrary to the thinking of many Ghanaians.

Born Gregory Bortey Promise Newman, the ‘CCTV’ crooner has stated emphatically that he is not a fan of going on dates. He explained that he prefers to rather stay home all day.

In an interview on Celebrity Fanzone, he also revealed that he has never had a girlfriend and had gone on only three dates all his life.

“I have never gone on dates. I have been on two dates my whole life because I have never had a girlfriend. The first time I went on a date was three years ago and it happened twice after,” he disclosed.

“I will order the ‘waakye’ and take home. I am always home. A lot of stuff I used to do, I can no longer do,” he added.

It has been reported this week that some entertainments pundits are worried that with the opposition calling the president of Ghana ‘King Promise’, it might go against his brand.

However, King Promise has insisted that President Nana Akufo-Addo being tagged “King Promise” by his political opponents is something he finds funny, which doesn’t bother him.

“It’s funny when I see it all the time. I always laugh when I see stuff like that. I don’t have a problem with it honestly, having them call the president by my name kind of funny. He is the president, who’s gonna say he doesn’t like it. It doesn’t take anything away from me.”

King Promise is billed to perform at this year’s Ghana Meets Naija concert slated for June 9 at the Fantasy Dome in Accra.

Currently, his ‘CCTV’ track has taken over airwaves in Ghana.
