All hail the New King of Highlife music in Ghana.
Highlife legend, Abrantie Amakye Dede has endorsed and crowned Kuami Eugene as the New King of Highlife music in Ghana.
The two performed together on the stage at the VGMA20. Amakye Dede described Kuami Eugene as the only highlife musician now who can carry on with the highlife music genre that they (the legends) started.
Before they left the stage, Amakye Dede called Kuami Eugene and asked him to kneel before him. He then put the crown on Kuami Eugene’s head and endorsed him as the New King of Highlife.
This rather symbolic gesture from such an icon as Amakye Dede perhaps confirms that one thing that most of us have known for a while.
Kuami Eugene is currently the safest pair of hands who can become the new torchbearer for highlife music.
The album of the year winner put a lot of work into his Rockstar album and his efforts were duly recognized.
Congrats to King Kuami Eugene!
