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”.

… “A lot of ladies carry Louis Vuitton but most are replicas”
“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.
Fashion 101 returns on Africa Magic Entertainment on Thursday, 5pm and on GHOne on Sunday 3pm (with a repeat on Monday 8pm).
It is produced for television by Reverb GH and Emerald Paradise Productions.
