“There was nothing disrespectful in what he said”-Richie Mensah defends Kuami Eugene

Published

on

Boss of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah has weighed in on the on-going battle between his label member, Kuami Eugene and hip-life artist Guru NKZ.

The two have been trending yesterday following reports that Kuami Eugene chastised Guru for disrespecting his boss, Richie and seeking a feature with him.

“Guru did not use the right channel. You want to feature me but you go to media houses to insult the man who made me. I wouldn’t have been Kuami Eugene but for Richie so I expect that respect is accorded him no matter the differences that exist. I am under Lynx Entertainment and any song I produce needs to go through them,” Kuami Eugene is reported to have said in an interview on Adom TV.

The “Yeeko” hitmaker’s sentiments come following the altercation between hip-life artiste Guru and his boss.

In September last year, Guru had accused Richie Mensah, Okyeame Kwame and Bice Osei Kuffuor, a.k.a Obour for sabotaging his career for the past ten years despite his hard work and contribution to the music industry as both a musician and an investor.

Guru responded to Kuami Eugene’s statements saying;

“Point of correction I never begged for a Collaboration. I didnt ask for Collaboration because I wanted a hit song, I have alot of hit songs and im proud of that. I wanted you to know i appreciate your craft does why i wanted us to work together and nothing more.”

Richie has also waded into the conversation and defending Kuami Eugene’s statements.

He wrote:

“I normally stay quiet in most situations but this time I only feel it’s right I say something. Guru asked Lynx for a feature with either KiDi or Kuami Eugene, but the request was denied. He then went from one media house to another insulting myself and other members of Lynx management, even to the extent of accusing us of sabotaging his career for the past 10years. He spun stories which implied we have some extreme power in the industry to vitiate someone’s career. As usual my team and I stuck to our usual demeanour and stayed mute. When Kuami Eugene was asked in an interview if he would feature Guru, he simply said he couldn’t because Guru had insulted me consistently, and it wouldn’t be right to do a feature with someone who was disrespecting his boss. Let’s call a spade a spade. There was nothing disrespectful in what Eugene said. I’m a responsible leader, and I would have chastised my artist if he spoke out of turn. So my question is, those attacking Eugene for allegedly disrespecting his elder Guru, where were they when Guru was attacking myself and my reputation in a disrespectful manner? We talk about unity in the industry and then we go around bringing each other down. I personally have no problem with Guru. Never have and never will. I like to conserve my energy towards constant success and development than to waste my time on petty squabbling. Guru is a natural hitmaker, and doesn’t need KiDi nor Kuami Eugene on his song to make a hit. So there really should be no offence taken in any of this. So can we just drop all this wahala and everyone go back to making hits for Ghana.”
