The fast-rising artist has expressed his dissatisfaction after realising that the rapper has deceived him to endorse the ruling political party
Ghana’s reigning Artist of the Year Kuami Eugene has admitted that he is disappointed after a song he featured on has been tagged as a campaign song for National Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2020 general elections.
In a song by award-winning rapper Sarkodie titled Happy Day, Kuami Eugene sang the chorus. However, little did Eugue know that Sarkodie was going to endorse NPP as he said in the song that “if he can sleep comfortably in his room devoid of constant power shortage and has his children attending schools freely, then Nana Akufo-Addo should continue as the president until 2024.”
“Sarkodie deceived me to be on a song which he was actually going to look like it was to endorse Nana Akufo-Addo,” Eugene said in an interview with Stacy.
“Actually, we did this song to thank God and not to endorse NPP. I feel a little betrayed because this wasn’t what we agreed on. However, I will not sue a senior colleague.
“If indeed he has taken 500k cedis to give this song to NPP then I will not sue him for the deceit but go to his house for my money
“Sarkodie has insisted after my management contacted him that this song was not an endorsement to take money but he wanted to voice out what he felt?” he added.
Eugene was voted as the Artist of The Year at the 2020 Ghana Music Awards held a couple of months ago.
