‘I was forced to crown Kwame Eugene as King of Highlife’ – Amakye Dede


Veteran Ghanaian highlife musician, Amakye Dede says he was forced into crowning young highlife and Afro-beat singer, Kuami Eugene, as the future king of highlife in Ghana.

He received backlash from various players in the music industry, including record producer Zapp Mallette for the act.

During an appearance on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday, Amakye Dede spoke candidly about the circumstances surrounding the crowning moment.

He expressed that it was not his desire or intention to bestow the title upon Kuami Eugene, indicating that external pressures influenced his decision.

“Though I did that, it was not my will to do so.”

“They forced me to crown Kuami Eugene,” he said.

“I even gave the crown they handed over to me to someone to put it down, but they later said, no I have to crown him, and I did it,” he added.
