The Industry Still Doesn’t Understand That An Artiste Can Write Songs For Others – Kuami Eugene

Popular Ghanaian Highlife musician Kuami Eugene has lamented the fact that the Ghana music industry is yet to understand the versatility of creatives.

Speaking on the Onua Showtime with Nana Ama McBrown which Newshuntermag.com monitored, he reacted to criticisms about writing Joyce Blessing’s “Victory” song.

Kuami Eugene listed several artistes he has written songs for including Becca, Efya, MzVee, and Adina. He added that he had been doing so with discretion because he believed the music industry had yet to understand the concept of an artiste equally being a songwriter.

“I was just doing it behind closed doors because many people would not understand and the industry has not developed to the level where it can understand. People would ask “He does songs and writes songs for others?” he said.

He added that the situation would have been worse if he started charging for his songwriting works, especially as he was new to the industry at the time. He therefore had to “make some sacrifices and do some of them for free.”

Kuami Eugene currently has been vocal in his songwriting projects. Recently he had a tussle with fellow artiste Mr. Drew over a released song which he was not credited for.
