Kuami Eugene's dream to win a Grammy Award has hit a roadblock - he doesn't command the 'more support' he believes is needed to pick the prestigious award.
On Tuesday, May 12, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported that Eugene had shared in an interview that winning a Grammy award is within his reach as long as Ghanaians up their support for him.
A cross-section of commentators on the YEN Facebook page seems to hold a grudge against the Open Gate hitmaker after he stated in an earlier interview that Ghanaians have to fix their mentality before asking the government to fix the country.
The commentators explicitly stated that they are fixing themselves first before thinking about supporting him to win a Grammy award.
"Wat support is he talking about ??? when u spoke vehemently against others who wanted ur support for the #fixthecountrynow demo. If u don't know, we live in a "u do me I do you county," reads a comment by Amankwaa Karikari Irene.
Mohammed Izza also added: "Which Ghanaians? The same Ghanaians you refused to support in fixthecountry campaign? Or the Ghanaians you turned down over your selfish interest?"
"Ghana black stars didn’t tell us to fix ourselves yet still, we don’t support them anymore mpo.... let alone sebe wele kontomire to grammys... #fixyourselfkwame," said Adam Ayuba Barry.
Theo De Calcium Figo also mocked Kuami Eugene: "We are fixing ourselves first after we are done we will come and support your sebe, bankye, yam and nkontonmire song"

Weeks ago, Kuami Eugene took a swipe at Ghanaians who criticise the lyrical content of his song Open Gate.
The Lynx Entertainment artiste has been at the mercy of trolls for the line 'sebe wele kontomire' in the hit song. He, however, thinks people who have unkind words to say to him because of that are shallow and are criticising him just for the sake of it.
"It is really, really a bit too shallow if you say 'wele sebe kontomire' is a bad word or it is not Grammy worthy. I don't understand because I am making numbers out there which means we are really listening to it," said Eugene during an interview on Hitz FM.
