However, the musician commenting on being referred to as ‘Nungua Trey Songz’ said he is being nicknamed just as the President of Ghana being called ‘King Promise’.
He told JoyNews’ MzGee, after his performance at the residence of the British High Commissioner during the celebration of the Queen’s 93rd birthday, he told the President, he (the musician) was the real ‘King Promise’.
“I don’t mind, I’m from Nungua. Trey Songz is good, I’d rather they say Ghana’s King Promise because I represent my people…,” he said.
“…It’s like people calling the President and calling me the same, I can’t get mad at that. That’s the President,” he said.
