The days are getting closer to the climax of the 20th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and all expectations are high with many musicians and music enthusiasts tipping Lynx Entertainment signee, Kuami Eugene to win the most coveted award on the night; Artist of the Year.
While many have tipped Kuami Eugene to win big on the night, others are of the view that he is too young to win the most prestigious award which is Artist of the Year.
Well, Kuami Eugene has reacted to the above statement chiding critics that the Artist of the Year Award is not a bag of cement for him to carry.
Speaking on ‘We Dey Vybe’ on SVTV Africa with host DJ Nyaami, the Angela hitmaker noted that, he is quite surprised and doesn’t get it when some people say, he is young to win the coveted Artist of the Year Award.
“Yea, I have heard people say, oh he is young he can’t carry the award. I’m surprised cos I have the whole Lynx entertainment team behind who help me do all my things, so when I hear people say I can’t carry, I wonder if it’s a bag of cement that I have to go and gym before carrying it”, Kuami Eugene stated.
“The award is not a bag of cement for me to carry, once they think the person deserves it, then it must be given to the person” he added.
The highlife crooner furthered that, even though he has worked so hard in the year under review, every other artist in the category has equally done well in the year under review, nonetheless he is hopeful of winning the ultimate award and any other award.
