Actor Prince David Osei has said the roles given to him by most film producers have somewhat created a bad boy image for his personality.
“People perceive me as a bad boy probably because of the roles I play in movies,” he told Fashion 101 host Sandra Ankobiah.
Osei, who was a special guest on last weekend’s episode said contrary to how most people think of him, he is a cool, down to earth guy, who can’t even hurt a fly.
Asked why he has a thing for shades (or sunglasses), the stout-looking actor said “even in church I wear sunglasses. I wear them at night too. I see people but they don’t see me”.
“The sunglasses I’m wearing now (referring to the one he wore on set) is called Cazal. It was first endorsed by Jay Z and it costs 800 quid (800 pounds)”.
Asked which designer label he would gladly spend money on, Osei said: “I prefer shopping from places like Zara, H&M, Macy’s etc. The most expensive fashion item I have ever bought is my tuxedo. I bought it from Zara”.
“You see some people carrying designer stuff but most are replicas. A lot of ladies carry Louis Vuitton but most are replicas. It’s good to go for a brand that you can afford the original instead of an imitation”.
Osei also said his father is a fashion designer, whose label FAME, is doing pretty well.
“I am saying this for the first time on TV; my dad is a designer, FAME designs”.
Last weekend’s discussion segment centered on The African Print, and how it is gradually becoming an option most people would go for in choosing what to wear.
