Charterhouse: We didn’t orchestrate crowning of Kuami Eugene as highlife king

The veteran Ghanaian highlife musician, Amakye Dede, on Wednesday revealed that he was forced to crown the young highlife and Afrobeat singer

Charterhouse Production Ltd, organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), has said they had no hand in Amakye Dede‘s crowning of Kuami Eugene as the future king of highlife in Ghana at the 2019 VGMAs.

The veteran Ghanaian highlife musician on Wednesday revealed that he was forced to crown the young highlife and Afrobeat singer.

Amakye Dede came under a barrage of attacks from players in the music industry, including the record producer Zapp Mallet, after the incident.

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (14 June 2023), Amakye Dede said: “Though I did that, it was not my will to do so. They forced me to crown Kuami Eugene.”

It wasn’t part of the plan

In response on Thursday (15 June) on the Asaase Breakfast Show, Robert Klah, head of public events and communication at Charterhouse said: “We did not orchestrate any crowning session.”

“So I am a bit lost when it comes to the assertion that event organisers are responsible,” Klah said.

“We work with a team… so, you give them opportunity, they create what they want to do, …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,” Klah added.
