I don’t steal people’s song, I pick a line from them – Kuami Eugene clears the air

After several accusations, the man himself has confessed in an interview, what the actual ‘truth’ is.

Popular Ghanaian Singer and Songwriter, Kuami Eugene has been backlashed by fans for ‘stealing’ old songs and sampling them in his own way to make them hit songs.

In an interview with Citi TV’s AJ Sarpong, The Rockstar, as he is affectionately called, debunked such rumours and termed them as untrue.

“Music theft is when you pick exactly what someone has said and put your name on it like it’s yours, but that’s not what I do. I just pick inspirations from a song, not a whole verse or chorus. When I’m writing my song and I find out there’s something that’s in line with what I’m writing I just pick it, that doesn’t mean I have plagiarised a song and termed it as my own.

“Even bigger artistes than myself do that, globally. So I don’t know why there’s always something wrong when I do it.”  He said. 

He added that, sometimes he does that to remind people the kind of ‘vibe’ he is trying to create, not because he lacks content.

The 2-time VGMA High-Life artiste of the Year winner has been accused several times for lyrical theft. About a year ago, he was accused for stealing Nigerian Rapper, Ice Prince’s lyrics in his hit song “Confusion.” Kuami Eugene went ahead to do a remix with the Popular Rapper.
