Lynx Entertainment Boss, Richie has poured all the blames on the Ghanaian media after his signee, Kuami Eugene was sued over song theft.
When you mention “Song theft” in Ghana, all attentions will be shifted to Reigning Artist of the Year, Kuami, we don’t know how but that’s it. The talented singer has been accused several times for sampling others work without seeking permission.
Not long ago, the same thing happened when Ghanaian born Nigerian artist Oduma Essan dragged Eugene to court over copyright claims requesting part ownership of his popular song ‘Show Body’ released on October 9, 2020 featuring Falz.
The lawsuit details indicates Essan dropped her song having the same title ‘Show Body’ back in July 17, almost 3 months before Kuami Eugene’s own hit the digital playlists.
Essan who is not only fighting over the title but also strong claims the Lynx Entertainment signee also took some lyrical powers from it is demanding a compensation of GHS 120,000 in damages.
Reacting to the lawsuit, Richie, who is the artist’s manager has shifted the entire blame on the Ghanaian media for reporting the alleged song theft issue that finally led Essan to court.
“I want to give a shout out to the media houses and let you guys know that you are responsible for this,” he told Doreen Avio on JoyNews. “Because, the truth is that, when you don’t protect your child, you allow people to enter your house to attack them.”
“Kuami Eugene keeps getting attacks regularly because they’ve come to see that when you attack him, you make news. All you have to do is say ‘this’ and get attention.”
“Because the media houses keep publishing some of these things. But trust me, if the media houses stop paying attention to the ‘rubbish stories’, they will stop bringing the rubbish stories.”
“Anybody who listens to the two songs will see that there are no similarities whatsoever. The only thing that is similar about the two songs is the title.”
