- Kuami Eugene has been accused of stealing lyrics once again
- His latest accuser is Docta Flow who claims the singer stole lyrics for his collaboration with Okyeame Kwame
Highlife sensation Kuami Eugene has found himself in another controversy over his lyrics in a song.
This time, a hiplife artiste known as Docta Flow is accusing the Wish Me Well hitmaker of stealing lyrics from a song he (Docta) calls Chichinga.
According to the hiplife artiste, Kuami Eugene used the lines “ma bie gya, a ma obi adwa, afei ma bie new chapter” in Okyeame Kwame’s ‘Ino Be My Matter’ song he was featured in.
These lines, Docta Flow claimed, were lyrics he wrote in the Chichinga song which also features Kuami Eugene.
“We did the song before Kuami Eugene was signed unto his label. A year and some months after the song was released, I went to Lynx office, to meet Kuami and his manager but they treated me as if my song was substandard,” he added.
Speaking in an interview on Hitz FM, Kuami Eugene's accuser stated that he had tried to get a video done for his song or rewrite the song but was denied. His suggestion of them having another collaboration was also shot down by Eugene who claimed his plate was full.
For this reason, Docta Flow "was shocked to hear him use my words in a song” without any credit.
Docta Flow, however, does not intend to take the matter to court but want only wants to raise awareness over because many underground artistes treated this way are not given the chance to talk in such matters.
Attempts by the show host, Andy Dosty, to reach Okyeame Kwame or Kuami Eugene for a response to the accusation was not successful.
It must be noted that this is not the first Kuami Eugene has been involved in such controversy concerning his lyrics or songs.
His breakthrough Angela track alongside Confusion and Wish Me Well have all suffered from accusations of lyrics or beat stealing.
Recently he was accused of stealing lyrics for his verse on the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) 2019 theme song titled ‘Our Music Lives’, featuring the voices of Amandzeba, KiDi, Adina, Joe Mettle, Teephlow and Kuami Eugene.
According to reports on social media, the ‘Aku Shika’ singer’s verse was sampled from a song titled ‘Ragamuffin’ by a female Jamaican Dancehall artiste, Koffee.
