In a bold and unapologetic response, Kuami Eugene asserted that he had no intentions of changing his Highlife sound.

The artiste emphasised that changing his unique musical identity in pursuit of international recognition would be a disservice to the Highlife genre. He firmly stated that his commitment to preserving and promoting Highlife music was non-negotiable.

Ameyaw Debrah weighs in on Kuami Eugene's style

Popular entertainment journalist Ameyaw Debrah, in a conversation with YEN.com.gh, opened up about Kuami Eugene being referred to as a local artiste, and mentioned that it was far from the truth. He said:

I don't believe there is anything like a local artiste. Kuami Eugene's songs have crossed borders, so tagging him as a local artiste is pointless and something we should not do as a people. I have friends from Nigeria who have requested him for different gigs, so he's big outside Ghana. I don't subscribe to that assertion.
