Amakye Dede Pointed Out The Person Who Ordered Him To Crown Kuami Eugene

After some series of pressures mounted on Highlife Legendary Amakye Dede concerning a statement, he made 3 days ago on Asaaseradio about the crown he gave to 2019 “VGMA Artist Of The Year” Kuami Eugene.

In an interview on Okay FM, he revealed that artiste manager Kiki Banson gave him the crown to bestow the honour on Kuami Eugene. Amakye Dede said that he initially gave the crown to someone else backstage before heading to the stage later to perform the ceremony.

“It wasn’t me…They forced me to do it,” he said adding that people who doubt can seek confirmation from Mr Banson. On Wednesday, Amakye Dede revealed he succumbed to external pressure to crown Kuami Eugene as the king of future highlife in Ghana in 2019.

Following his claims, Charterhouse, organisers of the VGMA, disassociated itself from the allegation, stating that it had no hand in the events leading to the coronation. The Head of Public Events and Communication, Robert Klah, has since urged Amakye Dede to reveal who forced him to undertake the activity.

“We did not orchestrate any crowning session so I am a bit lost when it comes to the assertion that event organisers are responsible. We work with a team. So, you give them the opportunity, they create what they want to do,” Mr Klah said on Accra-based Asaase Radio.


“The only thing is that you want to ensure that whatever they are going to present is not distasteful, so they get there and perform their act and you move on,” he added.

Meanwhile, Amakey Dede noted that he does not think the artiste manager will deny his role in the crowning which received some backlash in 2019.
