Ghanaian musician, Martin King Arthur, popularly known as Kofi Kinaata, has advised his colleague Kuami Eugene not to use the works of other songwriters without crediting them duly.

His comment was on the heels of Kuami being ‘busted’ for using portions of lyrics without acknowledging the original owners.

“Sometimes it is just by coincidence; you know, like they say, great minds think alike. So it is possible to say things similar to what others may have said in the past without knowing,” he told Mr El on Connect FM’s mid-morning show Adwumapamere.

“If the same accident happens twice consecutively, it’s got to be intentional.”

“If we do not know the song, it is hiding in an obscure corner, and it has to take some people to hunt for the original composers, then that is a clear insult to our intelligence and an attempt to look sharp,” Kofi added.

So far, Kuami Eugene has been accused of plagiarising the works of Malian singer, Sidiki Diabate and Nigeria’s Ice Prince.
