Nigerians accepted me – King Promise

Ghanaian musician, Gregory Bortey Newman, popularly known as King Promise, has said he was welcomed by Nigerians during his recent tour of Africa’s most populous nation.

Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Zylofon FM, King Promise disclosed that he was surprised to see Nigerians singing his “CCTV” as they cheered him on.

“Nigeria was amazing”, he said, adding: “I had a good time when I was doing media promotions; I did a few TV and radio station interviews and I did zylofon concert, which was a good one. I had an amazing time.”

According to the ‘Abena’ hitmaker, he was initially scared to go out there to promote his career out of fear of being rejected, but it turned out to be a successful venture.

“When you are in someone’s country, where it’s not your country, you will be scared, because you don’t know how it’s going to be, but people actually sang along to CCTV and the rest.

The singer added that he is looking forward to hitting the international market, saying: “For me, I had a good time in Nigeria and I am thankful, I am looking forward to hitting other African markets as much as I’m trying to break into the world, so, it was a good move and I am excited about it, we are receiving a lot of messages from Nigerians; already they are loving it, so, it means something positive.”
