I Never Said I Wanted To Be Like Wizkid, But He Is My Target – Kuami Eugene

Lynx Entertainment artiste, Eugene Marfo, popularly known as Kuami Eugene has debunked reports suggesting that he once said he wants to be like the Nigerian superstar, Wizkid.

According to the Angela hitmaker, that is a total contradiction of what he said.

He made this known in an interview on e.tv Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity show. Kuami Eugene rather explained that what he said was that Wizkid is his target and focus so long his career in music is concerned.

According to him, the CEO of Starboy Entertainment has achieved a lot for himself in music, hence he looks up to him.

“I said Wizkid was my target, he was my focus, not that I want to be like him. He is the target of my career, he has achieved a lot and I want to go that high.” He told host, Foster Romanus when he asked if it was true that he had once stated his desire to be like Wizkid.

Kuami Eugene came into the limelight when he entered the MTN Hitmaker Competition in 2016. He emerged the second-runner up in the season’s finale.

He was signed shortly after to the award-winning Ghanaian record, Lynx Entertainment.

Kuami Eugene rapidly became one of the fastest rising stars in Ghana in 2017. This follows the release of hit singles ‘Ebeyeyie’, ‘Hribaba’, ‘Show Dem’ and ‘Boom Bang Bang’.

But the release of his hit single  ‘Angela’ made him a household name in the Ghanaian music industry.

He won the Highlife Artiste of the Year and Best New Act of the Year at the2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
