It’s Too Early To Complain Over Credit Of Songs – Sleeky Tells Kuami Eugene.
Kuami Eugene of Lynx Entertainment has come forward to say that he played a significant role in the creation of Mr. Drew’s viral hit song “Case.”
The news has caused a heated debate in the music industry, with many divided on whether Kuami Eugene’s complaints are legitimate or just a publicity stunt.
Kuami Eugene, recognized for his musical prowess and songwriting abilities, sat down for an interview with U.S.-based Ghanaian vlogger Naana Donkor Arthur, and his contributions to “Case” and the lack of proper credit he received for his involvement were discussed during the conversation.
During the interview, Kuami Eugene made a bold statement, asserting that he had written approximately 80% of the song, which includes key elements such as the catchy hook and a significant portion of the second verse.
Sadick Assack, known as Sleeky and the CEO of Sleeky Promotions, a prominent Ghanaian music promoter and events organiser, took to his Facebook wall to share his opinions on the hot topic.
Sleeky criticised Kuami Eugene’s choice to publicly call out Mr. Drew for not giving him full credit for the song in a sharply written post.
Sleeky questioned the timing of Kuami Eugene’s protest, speculating that it was driven by a desire for attention and publicity rather than a genuine concern about earning proper credit.
He went on to remind Kuami Eugene that the music industry is frequently characterized by joint efforts, and it is critical to assess the total influence of a production beyond individual contributions.
Sleeky commended Mr. Drew’s compositional ability and his openness to accept the contributions of others, drawing on his personal experiences working with the artist. Sleeky further highlighted that Mr. Drew openly credited another songwriter, Afezi Perry, for his work on Mr. Drew’s CD.
The controversial promoter also stated that Kuami Eugene is one of the top performers in the music industry and is not new to the contentious debates regarding artists releasing renditions of other songs without going through the proper channels.
