Kuami Eugene has lately been in the news for the wrong reasons, mostly for stealing a hook, a verse, or a rhythm from someone’s song. He has been advised by radio presenter, Prince Tsegah to avoid using stunts for hype.
Early on was the ‘Confusion’ saga which was communicated to the public to have been stolen from Malian artiste Sidiki.
This alleged theft case followed him to the month of June after releasing his new single, ‘Wish Me Well’. The highlife artiste was accused by Nigerian rapper, Ice Prince for stealing and sampling his songs Wish Me Well and In The Morning to make it his own.

This got the public talking and it really gave Kuami Eugene the hype he has been yearning for only for the masses to wake up to a remix from the two.
Radio presenter and artiste manager, Prince Tsegah, known in showbiz as The Don has advised the highlife artiste to stop depending on stunts for hype.
Speaking on his show, “You Sey Weytin” on Hitz FM, Prince Tsegah advised the young artiste to take a cue from some artistes in the industry that depend on stunts for hype and not their crafts.
“On a more serious note, I heard the whole Ice Prince saga was a stunt to promote their remix. Please, Kuami Eugene don’t use this strategy too much. You can ask the likes of Shatta Wale. They have used stunts and still have to depend on stunts”, he said.
He added that the high life artiste shouldn’t allow his Nigerian fellow to use him to revive his dead career. He advised Kuami Eugene to allow his songs to sell him instead of stunts.
