Popular Highlife artiste, Kuami Eugene has apologised to Patapaa and his followers for comments he made about the fellow musician.
Kuami Eugene had stated that he will not collaborate with Patapaa because his songs were noise and not music.
The 'Angela' hitmaker who was speaking on GH One TV's Rythmz Live revealed that Patapaa had reached out to him for a collaboration but he had declined because he does not like Patapaa's style of music.
“He wants me for a feature and I said no because I’m not ready…Patapaa’s kind of songs is not me. He is making too much noise,” he stated in response to a question from the show host.
His comment led to a lot of bashing from social media users who deemed it as insulting to Patpaaa.
But in sharp u-turn not long after the video of his TV interview went viral, Kuami Eugene has render an unqualified apology for what has turned out to become a controversial comment.
In a video he posted on Twitter, Kuami Eugene explained that his comments were borne out of his friendship with Patapaa which sees him tease the 'One Corner' hitmaker everytime they meet.
According to him, he always teases Patapaa for producing noise in the name of music whenever they meet and that was exactly what he was doing on the TV programme which has unfortunately been interpreted in a negative sense.
Kuami Eugene added that he will continue to support Patapaa with his music.
While Kuami Eugene, born Eugene Marfo, has been the poster boy for Ghanaian Highlife since he burst onto the scene last year with his mega hit, 'Angela', Patapaa has been everything unconventional in the Ghanaian music industry.
His 'One Corner' song, though poorly produced went international and he has been riding on that since 2017.
Patapaa is currently one of the most popular music artistes in Ghana.
