Lynxx Entertainment’s Kuami Eugene has revealed he is uncomfortable with the rap of Sarkodie on their hit song “Happy Day” which seemed to have endorsed President Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to Kuami Eugene, he was not aware that Sarkodie had a verse in the song that endorsed the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) urging Ghanaians to vote for him and retain him in power and that makes him very uncomfortable.
Speaking with MzGee, the “Angela” hitmaker, said that the verse sent to him by Sarkodie did not contain the verse that endorsed President Akufo-Addo.
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement for Nana Addo to aid me to do the chorus”.
He further went on to add that he is quite disturbed because he fears the impact that the political colouring of the song might have on his career since he was not really ready to do any open political endorsement.
The moment of surprise according to Kuami Eugene came when during the music video shoot, they realized the song contained a verse that sought to endorse President Nana Addo. As a result, he revealed that they contacted Sark’s management, but they denied it was not an endorsement song.
With the song enjoying massive airplay and huge support, Kuami Eugene says he feels uncomfortable and he dreads the effects it may have on his career.
“It was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse. We confronted Sark’s management, and they denied doing the song as an endorsement for Nana Addo.”
“I am uncomfortable, I still don’t know Sarkodie’s motive for the song. The endorsement will have an effect on my career. I wasn’t ready to vouch for any political party openly. I know it will not end here”
Multiple award-winning rapper, Sarkodie released a new (Happy Day) song with Kuami Eugene, the artiste of the year at the just ended VGMA 2020.
The beautiful song, which sounds like a hip-hop version of an urban gospel is currently trending on all online platforms.
