Ghanaian singer, Mr. Drew, known professionally as Andrews Commey Otoo, has accused Open Gate hitmaker Kuami Eugene, born Eugene Kwame Marfo, is an expert in stealing songs by other artistes.

In 2020, the official video for his song, Eat, featuring Stonebwoy was deleted off Youtube after a report that it illegally sampled 'Love Riddim' by Nigerian-American artiste, Rotimi.

He was accused of copying the sound of No Dulling by Keche, featuring Kuami Eugene.

In his defence, Mr. Drew said he is not the first artiste to 'steal' songs belonging to other artistes, and that Kuami Eugene does the same.

"Kuami Eugene started stealing songs before me. He has a scholarship in it," retorted Drew to Abeiku Santana on Okay FM.

In other entertainment news, the Executive Director of Child Rights International (CRI), Mr. Bright Appiah, has said it can be considered an offence, should an individual make a donation to children and publish it.

While speaking in an interview with blogger Zionfelix, Mr Appiah indicated that his outfit, CRI, was not in the business of donating to children and publishing it everywhere.

He said it should be the fundamental principle of every person not to show off their acts of kindness for all to see.

Appiah said even though giving to children who are less privileged is the way to go, it was inherently an offence to post details and photos of it.

He added that for instance, should someone donate to an orphanage and post photos of it, the donor can be picked on for committing an offence and infringing on the rights of the kids.

Bright Appiah also reacted to the news of Akuapem Poloo giving money to a street child some time back.

According to him, if that act came to his attention back then, he would have called Akuapem Poloo to thank her for her act of kindness.

He went on to add that Akuapem Poloo’s son, Chief, would be taken very good care of until his mother returns from serving her 90-day sentence. Mr Appiah revealed that he had visited Poloo’s family and spoken to them about CRI’s line of action in catering for the young boy.
