Kuami Eugene after winning the much-coveted ‘Artiste Of The Year’ at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) believes it should have been won either by Medikal or Kofi Kinaata.
Speaking to AJ Sarpong on Citi FM’s ‘Brunch in the Citi’, the ‘Rockstar’ said he had worked hard to earn the award regardless of the popular notion that he wasn’t a deserving recipient.
“I was rooting for Kinaata to win the Artiste of the Year besides me. I was also rooting for Medikal as well. Because Kofi Kinaata has really worked and Medikal also released back-to-back hit songs for the year. He has done the job, truth be told,” he said.
Prior to the awards, held at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre on August 28 and 29, 2020, a lot of people had tipped Sarkodie and Kofi Kinaata to win the top prize.
Kuami Eugene beat off competition from Sarkodie, Kofi Kinaata, Diana Hamilton and Medikal to win the award. He also won Highlife Artiste of the Year.
