Ghanaian Highlife artist Kuami Eugene has expressed that he considers Sarkodie his go-to choice when he has tough messages to convey in his songs. He explained that Sarkodie possesses the lyrical prowess to effectively articulate the message he wants to convey.
During an appearance on the Kojo Manuel Podcast on October 1, Kuami Eugene praised Sarkodie for his ability to fearlessly speak his mind in songs and for being a reliable collaborator when it comes to addressing important and challenging subjects in their music.
This acknowledgment underscores the respect and admiration that Kuami Eugene has for Sarkodie’s lyrical talent and the role he plays in the Ghanaian music scene.
He said: “If I want to say something to the public and I want it to be a feature, I’ll call Sarkodie. anytime I want to say something to the public and it’s dear to my heart, but I want to come hard, I’ll go and knock on Sarkodie’s door. Because he can speak. When he has something to say, he’ll do a song.”
Kuami Eugene and Sarkodie have collaborated on several songs, including “No More,” released in 2019, and “Honey,” also released in 2019.
Their most recent collaboration, “Happy Day,” stirred controversy when it was perceived as supportive of the NPP (New Patriotic Party) political party. Kuami Eugene clarified that he was not aware of any endorsement and expressed discomfort with the song being associated with a political party. This incident highlighted the potential impact and sensitivity of music in the context of political affiliations and public perception in Ghana’s music industry.
