‘Happy Day’: Kuami Eugene betrayed?
Reigning Artiste of the Year, Kuami Eugene has disclosed his discomfort with a new song by Sarkodie dubbed, “Happy Day.”
The song which featured Kuami Eugene subtly endorsed Free Senior High School and appealed to voters to retain the New Patriotic Party(NPP) in power.
Reacting to the song on 3FM’s “Showbuzz” with MzGee, Kuami Eugene said, he was given the first verse of the song, which did not contain any endorsement of a political party, for him to compose the chorus.
He went further to say that he got to know of the endorsement bit in the song when they were shooting the video.
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement of Nana Addo to aid me do the chorus, it was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse. I had no idea it was an endorsement song,” he revealed.
He said, after getting to know of the endorsement element in the song, his team, Lynx Entertainment confronted Sarkodie’s team which they denied that it was in support of President Akufo-Addo’s campaign.
“As a human I hate to be kept in the shadow to do something that I have no idea about, it is the only thing that makes me quite uncomfortable,” he said.
Kuami Eugene, added that the release of the song did not make him comfortable, because, “it has the tendency to affect his budding music career.”
According to him, he was not ready to openly endorse a political party, adding that they would still pursue the matter and make their position clear.
