Afropop Musician, Fuse ODG, has narrated how he never felt confident as a black man living in Europe.

According to Fuse, it was quite that serious that at a point he was trying to sound like a British because he didn’t want to be noticed as an African.

Speaking to Sammy Forson on Joy Fm’s Personality Profile, Fuse explained that it’s by such attempt to sound like a British that has caused his “Twi” to be diluted and doesn’t sound authentic because he avoided speaking his local dialect so as not be noticed as a Ghanaian.

Delving into what disorientated him to be shy of his motherland, he said growing up in Europe, there was a stereotype about “black people” and he didn’t want to be associated with such perception about Africans.

In the conversation, the singer also mentioned that all these experiences have now shaped his keen interest to change the archaic narrative about Africa and its people.
