Notable artist Kuami Eugene insists that he and fellow rapper Medikal are all good following his comment on Medikal’s “Omo Ada” song.
The Lynx Entertainment signee said that Medikal’s new song “Omo Ada” (Dem sleep) was stupid, adding that he was surprised about how people were taking jabs at him.
Speaking to Mynd Fm Entertainment Crew, Kuami Eugene said he was not insulting the rapper but it was only a playful comment. “Me and Medikal are like that,” he commented.
In a video posted over the weekend, Kuami Eugene said Medikal likes making useless songs.
When he shared the video, he captioned it “@amgmedikal Dey understand this Game Pass. I sing this song since I first hear am. And I can’t stop #OmoAda. Where are some of our bloggers. Go change my caption for attention.”
Some people on social media went in hard for Kuami Eugene.
Twitter user @EdenGodfred said “He needs to grow he’s too childish. Always criticizing one’s music but when people goes hard on his fashion sense he tends to cry!”
@NanaKojoSlim tweeted, “@KuamiEugene bcos we start dey do you rockstar rockstar so you figa say you bi “ABii the Rockstar”? Kumkum bhagya! Cartoon niqqa wo y3 toy. [email protected] Omo Ada wati.”
@QwerdjoB tweeted, “Empty barrels makes de most noise…Kwame Eugene is just a kid.”
However, Kuami Eugene said when he first heard the song, he could not stop jamming to it.
Kuami Eugene explained Medikal told him in a chat that Ghanaians interest in danceable songs was an influence when creating the song.
“I sent him the video I made first and he laughed and said our country [people] love to dance so you can’t do away with danceable songs,” he added.
He said many people do not understand or know the story behind the what they are seeing “I did not understand how a lot of people wanted to jab me. Medikal and I are playing with each other.”
He said he and the AMG rapper are cool and have about three songs they are yet to release.
Kuami Eugene after social media reaction to his comment was seen singing one of the songs he and Medikal have worked on. The caption read “Now That We’ve Got Their Attention, When Make We Drop Am? #Still #OmoAda. @djnoreuk @AmgMedikal.”
After the video, another Twitter user @don_tsina_young said “@KuamiEugene used a smart way to promote his upcoming song with @AmgMedikal he fool yall. As u make your mind set u no go search job do and u always go stay home idle, they will always give you things to talk about.”
But other users had a different opinion. @EdenGodfred said “be wise… so Ghanaian artist can go low to that extreme? @KuamiEugene I’m sad for you.”
@KandyBoyPuma tweeted, “So rydee ebi small samll diss our Ghanaian Artist go take promote demma music?? This is childish oh by the way ebi @AmgMedikal & @KuamiEugene.”
@AbenaSerwa also tweeted, “What is wrong with promoting his stuff??”
Kuami Eugene told Mercury Quaye he and Medikal are planning on shooting the video for their collaboration soon before the release.
However, this is not the first time Kuami Eugene has been criticised for his comment about a colleague’s song.
In 2018, the artist was roasted on social media after he said Patapaa’s songs were noise and not music.
The “Wish me Well” singer in a video apologised and said it was not his intention to disrespect Patapaa but the two have a good relationship where they play and make fun of each other.
He explained Patapaa teases him about making too many wedding songs and he in turn teases him on doing too many noisy songs.
