Popular Highlife musician, Adane Best, has accused Lynx entertainment’s rockstar, Kuami Eugene, of stealing lines from his songs without crediting him.
In an interview on Accra FM, Adane Best accused Kuami Eugene of stealing what appears to be his signature tune ‘Eeeeeee eeeeeee‘.
According to him, that ‘Eeeeeee eeeeeee’ was adopted or in plain terms ‘stolen’ from his popular song ‘Mama’ which had the ‘Eeeeeee eeeeeee‘ a lot of times in the song’s introduction.
Adane Best also alleged that in Kuami Eugene’s ‘Wish Me Well’, the lines “Nana Nyame Kabi mam3 kabi mam3 kabi mam3 kabi mam3 kabi ma wo mba Nana Nyame b3 Kabi ma wo mba ah” which literally means God should speak for his children, were also taken from the last line of his ‘Mama’ song.
When asked if he had the intention of going ahead with any legal battle to claim damages for what Kuami Eugene has done, Adane Best stated that his goal is not to get money from the rockstar but he just wants the right thing to be done.
He added that at least kuami Eugene should have credited him once he used his lines just like it is done elsewhere in the world, according to a report by Zionfelix.net.
Asked if he will like to do a collaboration with Kuami Eugene, Adane Best stated that he is one artist who does not do well with features, and as such has never been featured by anybody.
Adane Best happens to be one of the people who have accused Kuami Eugene of stealing from his songs.
The young singer was recently accused of stealing his song ‘Wish me well’ from Nigerian Ice Prince.
Also, when he released his hit song ‘Angela’ Kuami Eugene was accused of stealing from a popular Francophone singer.
After admitting to using part of the Francophone’s lyrics to his song, Kuami Eugene explained that he drew inspiration from him, for which reason he decided to use part of his lyrics.
