Popular Ghanaian singer, Eugene Kwame Marfo, well known in showbiz scenes as Kuami Eugene has debunked claims that he is gradually losing his relevancy in the music industry and he is running out of lyrics.
The musician has released his newest song titled “Open Gate” which most Ghanaians find the lyrics of the song weak.
The song, which is the lead single of his upcoming studio album, Son of Africa, is a fast-tempo afrobeat tune, produced by WillisBeatz.
Even after pulling over half a million views on YouTube with his video, most of his fans still find his writing abilities lagging.
Speaking with MzGee on TV3’s New Day, Kuami Eugene trashed all claims that he s running out of lyrics.
“Hello No, the thing is music is craft, where are these same people talking now, how did i get half a million views in three days, why arent they omplaining about the fact that the song is moving so quick and the video is moving so fast, thats where my question comes from” he said.
“Who ever is saying that doesn’t actually understand what he is saying, a lot of people talk about things they don’t understand, and currently in our world, a lot of people sit on shoes that they don’t even understand what the show is talking about, and will probably not be may be an entertainment person or somebody who has been in the studio or managed an artist for a long time or written songs for a longtime, so they don’t actually know what they are talking about, if they knew what they were talking about they will first think of the fact this song is getting half a million views in three days, how many Ghanaian artiste can pull that amount”
Explaining the reason for his controversial lyrics, the Lynx signee said; “if you have really listened to the song after saying wele, sebe, Kontomire, i made mention of do your walking, so that actually explains the ‘wele, sebe, kontomire’ because you know when we were kids we had a folktale we were playing with, when we see a nice woman passing by we used to say wele, sebe, kontomire, we were looking at the woman’s buttocks, so it is just something that goes with the song, do your walking, do that wele, sebe, kontomire, when you are walking down the aisle, its like its your wedding and your walking to the pastor so do that your wedding walk”.
