Kuami Eugene being awarded as Highlife King is not important- Bisa Kdei
Arguably one of the best musicians to ever do the Highlife music genre!
At the 2019 VGMAs, Veteran Highlife artiste, Amakye Dede, crowned the Lynx Entertainment signee, Kuami Eugene as the King of Highlife, clearly downplaying Bisa Kdei’s efforts.
Before Kuami Eugene was even introduced to the limelight, Bisa Kdei was making hit songs after hit songs. He is considered to be one of the top artistes who made Medikal what he is today.
However, many people now see his songs as ‘funeral songs’ thus, saying he’s almost obsolete.
Talking to Afia Pokua on the Vim Talk Show, Bisa Kdei shared his idea about Kuami Eugene being crowned as ‘The King of Highlife.’
“Kuami Eugene has done so much within these few years, I mean he deserves to be awarded and all that but crowing him as the King of Highlife is not important at the moment. Because the moment you do that, you put a lot of pressure on him, people will not appreciate what he does so much again because they’d be expecting more from him as a ‘King.’ People will be pushing him to go the extra mile, like he should go feature Jesus but that’s not how it works.”
Bisa Kdei was the talk of town at the 2016 VGMAs after sweeping away four awards including ‘Album of the Year, Highlife Song of the Year and Highlife artiste of the Year.’
Ronald Kwaku Dei Appiah better known by his stage name Bisa Kdei is a Ghanaian native solo singer and record producer from Eastern Region.
