‘We did not orchestrate crowning of Kuami Eugene’— Charterhouse dares Amakye Dede to come clean

Organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) has denied involvement in the crowning of Lynx headline artiste, Kuami Eugene as Highlife King of the country.

It could be recalled that Highlife Legendary, Amakye Dede recently asserted that some individuals compelled him at the 2019 edition of the VGMA to crown Kuami as the future of highlife music.

Following his assertion, the Head of Public Events and Communication of Charterhouse, Robert Klah, has urged Amakye Dede to mention names of those behind the act since Charterhouse is innocent of the supposed act.

In response to claims by Amakye Dede that he was forced to do the “coronation” against his will, Robert Klah told Asaase Radio that they had no hand in it.

“We did not orchestrate any crowning session so I am a bit lost when it comes to the assertion that event organisers are responsible. We work with a team so you give them the opportunity, they create what they want to do”.

“The only thing is that you want to ensure that whatever they are going to present is not distasteful, so they get there and perform their act and you move on,” he added.

He revealed that he was forced to crown Kuami Eugene Highlife King at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).

According to Amakye Dede, who made the disclosure on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (June 14), he did that under compulsion from the event’s organisers.

He didn’t only spark huge debate but equally faced public backlash from various players in the music industry, including record producer Zapp Mallet.

Interestingly, the veteran Highlife artiste has disclosed that Kiki Banson was behind the act in an interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM earlier today.

“I can tell you on authority that it was Kiki Banson who forced me to do this. You can call him to find out from him. Why do they have to put me through this?” he said.
