The president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour popularly known as Obour has revealed that eating fufu at night bloated his tummy.

Speaking on Neat FM’s Entertainment Ghana, the rapper denied allegations that he is spending money from the coffers of MUSIGA and that is making him gain weight.

“It is fufu oo! Eating fufu at night is what has bloated my tummy… Everybody at MUSIGA knows that there no money at MUSIGA. I believe people make those statements just for fan,” he said.


Obour admitted hearing heavy criticisms from a section of the public over his weight – a reason for his decision to do something about it.

“Frankly speaking, I have noticed how most Ghanaians love me, they worry about me and my health. I have noticed all their concerns about my weight and tummy. I don’t want to disappoint all those who love me and are worried about me so I have started a strong workout routine to reduce my weight and get in shape,” he stated.

Obour is set to start a new Fitness reality show which will be launched on Friday August at Rockstones Office in collaboration with 4Syte TV.
