VIDEO: I’m more connected with KiDi, Dope Nation than MzVee - Kuami Eugene on singer’s depression

Highlife musician Kuami Eugene says he was never aware of MzVee’s depression during her time at Lynx Entertainment because he is more connected to KiDi and Dope Nation.

MzVee, in her recent interview, revealed that she laid back for two years because she was going through depression.

According to her, the depression slowed down her creative thinking – which is why she put her career on hold for two years before making a comeback.

However, her former label mate Kuami Eugene says he wasn’t aware of the depression during her Lynx Entertainment days.

He made this revelation during an interview with MzGee on TV3.

“Is she going through depression? Wow!” Kuami Eugene said, looking stunned. “I didn’t know anything about her depression.”

He said despite working together under the same label, he didn't realise the issue, adding that he is more connected to KiDi and Dope Nation than MzVee because they are ‘guys’ and MzVee is a ‘lady’.

“Well, we don’t live under the same roof so I wouldn’t know if she is depressed or not. Being a label mate doesn’t mean we live in the same house. Besides, she’s a lady and I’m a guy,” he stated.

He continued: “There are some places I’ll go that MzVee wouldn’t go and likewise. She does her lady stuff and I do my man stuff. So, I’m more connected with KiDi because we live together. Or even Dope Nation because we are boys, boys [sic].”

Discussing how close they were at Lynx, he said: “The only thing we do is check up on each other when we meet at the studio. I don’t really go into her life to know that she is under depression.”

He added: “Before parting ways with Lynx Entertainment, I used to see her at the spa and meet at certain places because we live in the same area. From there, she moved to the USA and came back with the new song.”

He also said he loves MzVee’s comeback song, titled “Sheriff” and urged fans to stream the song.
