Kuami Eugene leaving Lynx Entertainment?
The announcement from Kuami Eugene comes after many days of speculations that he had parted ways with Lynx.
The rumours had been started after Kuami Eugene made a cryptic post about wanting to leave where he was. He deleted the tweet a few hours after sharing it when he realised it was gaining attention.

Kuami Eugene joins Black Sherif as label mate

Pundit Chris Tsormanah explains Kuami Eugene's move to Empire Music
While the general consensus has been that Kuami Eugene is breaking his ties with Richie Mensah's Lynx Entertainment, a pundit and music executive Chris Tsormanah has stated it is not the case.
According to Tsormanah who spoke to YEN.com.gh in a telephone interview, his close sources to the deal indicate that Kuami Eugene is only moving from Lynx as his record label but will maintain them as his managers.
"What thi means is that Empire, as the record label, will deal with the promotion of KUami Eugene's projects, distribute them, get him n tours, while Lynx will manage him personally.
"It is not different from what Black Sherif has. He has Empire as his record label but he is managed by RBA. Even at Lynx, KiDi had a similar deal in 2021 when he signed for Empire and Made In East New York labels while maintaining Lynx as management," Tsormanah explained.
He added that it was the way Richie Mensah's outfit had handled communication about Empir's deal with Kuami Eugene that is bringing confusion.
"I feel they could have handled it better. In KiDi's case, Lynx released a statement explaining the deal but this time, they left it for Kuami Eugene himself to announce. That is waht has led to the many specualtions and rumours."
