In a recent interview, Kuami Eugene defended his crown as he jabbed those criticizing him for the crown.

"It was a good feeling and performing with Amakye Dede was a blessing. With the crown, it is also a blessing upon my life," he said.

"I think it’s a negative vibe to say he was forced. Why can’t we appreciate goodness when it happens," he queried.

The Lynx Entertainment artiste claimed that he deserved the praise from the veteran highlife musician, Amakye Dede because he had worked hard over the years.

"I’ve won ‘Highlife Artiste of the Year’ back-to-back. Let me say that alone proves I am doing highlife well," he claimed.

"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.

Kuami Eugene has come under heavy criticisms after he was crowned king of highlife at the just-ended 2019 VGMA.

Some highlife musicians have waded into the argument as they criticized both Amakye Dede and Kuami Eugene.

In a recent interview, highlife musician Nautyca claimed the action by the legendary highlife musician did not sit well with him.

According to Nautyca, Kuami Eugene has not taken highlife to the extent that he will deserve such crowning.

He noted that Kuami Eugene has not been in the industry for long and has not taken highlife far like the legends like Daddy Lumba, Amakye Dede himself for him to be named king of highlife.
