There have been rumours going around in the highlife circles indicating that highlife legend,Â Amakye DedeÂ refuses to share the same stage with colleague,Â Dada K.d.
In an interview on Happy98.9FMâ€™s â€˜Showbiz Xtraâ€™ with Doctar Cann, the musician disclosed that he has high regard forÂ Amakye DedeÂ whom he sees as a role model but false rumours have destroyed that possible relationship.
â€œYes, when I am billed for a show withÂ Amakye Dede, he will not perform. It is all because of false and negative comments people have alleged I have made about him.â€
Citing a situation which also contributed to the bad relationship between himself and his mentor he revealed that, when living in Germany,Â Amakye DedeÂ came for a show and he went to welcome him. â€œBut people said bad things about me to him. Someone went to tell him I said I was already in Germany and expected him to come and greet me but it was not so. I had gone to greet him and told him if he (Amakye Dede) needed something I was there to help him.â€
Noting how he loved and respectedÂ Amakye Dede, he mentioned that before settling in Ghana he always visitedÂ Amakye Dedeâ€™s pub when he visited the country and â€œhis wife can confirm that.â€
â€œBecause of these rumours, whenÂ Amakye DedeÂ goes to shows and sees me, he neither wants to hear me nor share the same stage with me. He is acting on speculative rumour,â€ he reiterated.
The musician noted that he has spoken toÂ Amakye DedeÂ and explained things to him but their relationship is still not getting better.
