And to the Zylofon Music signee, Eugene's music cannot be classified as highlife.

He, however, said that the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year has some songs that can be considered as highlife but most of his songs fall under the afro pop genre.

“I think he has certain songs that fall under highlife but most his of songs sound like Afro. That is my candid opinion. I don’t know what somebody might think or how somebody will challenge it. It doesn’t mean he is not a beautiful artiste. He is one of the beautiful artistes Ghana has experienced", he opined.

He added Afro songs are disturbing our highlife songs and even in awards schemes, organizers put highlife songs and Afro songs together in the same category.


Recently, highlife legend Pat Thomas hailed Kuami Eugene's influence in the current Ghanaian music scene.

The ace musician has released a song dubbed “Time Will Tell” not long ago which he featured Kuami Eugene on it.

According to him, when they were recording the song he noted that the talented Lynx Entertainment signee was nervous but he urged him on.

Pat Thomas emphasized that what he saw was that Eugene was so proud to be with him and also thought he was too big to be with the singer.


He noted that he pushed Kuami Eugene close to him that he should relax because he’s his son.
