“High-life Artiste of the Year” winner at the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Kuami Eugene, has replied critics who think he did not deserve to be crowned by veteran high-life musician, Amakye Dede as the “Future of high-life.”
According to the “Wish me Well” singer, he deserves every bit of praise and honor coming his way because he worked hard for it.
Kuami Eugene was crowned by Amakye Dede at the VGMAs after an exciting performance together. According to Amakye Dede, Kuami has shown him that the high-life genre will continue to live on.
A lot of people have however come out to criticize the gesture; some feel it was staged just for hype, others feel it was disrespectful to other prominent high-life artistes like Bisa K’dei who has done equally well for the genre.
Kuami Eugene has come out to reply his critics saying that there is absolutely nothing bad about the gesture.
“It was a good feeling and performing with Amakye Dede was a blessing. With the crown, it is also a blessing upon my life. I think it’s a negative vibe to say he was forced. Why can’t we appreciate goodness when it happens?”
“I’ve won ‘Highlife Artiste of the Year’ back-to-back. Let me say that alone proves I am doing highlife well. I do live performances too and if I have been crowned Highlife act of the new era, I don’t think there is anything bad about it,” he added.
