Buzzing Highlife Singer Kuami Eugene is in the news for stealing another song. This time he stole not just only the song lyrics, the progression and also flow of the rap. Kuami Eugene is a Ghanaian singer-songwriter. He is signed to the record label Lynx Entertainment and is best known for his single “Angela”.
The song “Wish Me Well”, which Kuami Eugene of Lynx entertainment wrote and sang, is accused of being an “almost note for note copy” of the song “Wish Me Well”, written by Nigerian rapper Ice Prince and Brymo.
IS KUAMI EUGENE THE ONLY VICTIM KNOWN FOR “STEALING SONGS PROGRESSION ” ?
In Africa, we do not take copyright issues very seriously. This could be the reason why many artists do not get grammy. World Star Edsheeran has also had his own copyright challenges. The “Thinking Out Loud” Owner has been slapped with copyright claims that it lifts from Marvin Gaye’s 1972 classic “Let’s Get It On” and are seeking $100 million in damages.
Ghanaian Bloggers are not here to witchhunt any artist. But this attitude from Lynx entertainment has to stop. Kuami Eugene cannot steal note to note song , lyrics, progression and even flow of rap and rhymes.
So we ask can Nigerian Rapper Ice Prince also sue Kuami Eugene for copyright claims. Listen, people, the 2 songs and let us know you view.
