Kuami Eugene's claim to be a rockstar is unfounded, says Colombian singer and rapper, MC Dementor.
The Lynx Entertainment signee often refers to himself by the moniker in his songs, on stage, and during interviews.
In a new interview with MzGee on TV3's morning show, New Day, Dementor stated that the musician cannot lay a claim to the title because his music isn't rocking.
“No, he is not a rockstar. He sings nice and can call himself an afro-pop star but not a rockstar. Because rockstar is somebody that makes rock music, and his music is not rock," said Dementor.
"In fact, he can put something related to rock, but in trending, he is not related to a rockstar."
He added that rapper Sarkodie can call himself a rockstar because of his artistry.
Previously, YEN.com.gh reported that the Lynx Entertainment artiste has been slammed by an entertainment analyst for his continuous use of songs by other people without their approval.
The Open Gate hitmaker has been accused of using songs by both young and old songwriters, and music producers including Roland 'Roro' Ackah, the producer of Okumchola by the late Seth Frimpong.
Following a recent accusation, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, an entertainment analyst has advised Eugene and his management to put a stop to using songs by others without financial compensation and explicit permission of the rights holders.
"It is not fun anymore. Whether it's a trivial or serious related matter, he's always entangled in this song 'theft.' It should stop especially when it is coming on the steps of the 'Okumchola' issue," Asamoah-Baidoo said.
"Over the period, he's had the tag of 'stealing' songs. It is getting too much for me. I expect that the right thing will be done when he wants to use a song by someone by finding the right owners. Even if he can't do that himself, his management with their connections should figure it out."
