Lynx Entertainment act Kuami Eugene finds it unacceptable claims he released his first song of the year ‘Turn Up’ barely a day after MzVee’s ‘Sheriff’ with the intent of sabotaging the promotion of the female singer who parted ways with the label months ago.
Some fans had after the release of ‘Turn Up’ accused Kuami Eugene of attempting to foil MzVee’s comeback, an argument some critics described as weak and lame.
Speaking to TV3’s MzGee, the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Highlife Artiste of the Year established that the release was a mere coincidence while stressing that the claims are unjustified, to say the least.
“The fact that we all had plans to release the same month [doesn’t suggest so]. I released ‘Obiaato’ and that very day, Sarkodie released ‘Party and Bullshit’… I didn’t even know she [MzVee] was about to release her song. We all have plans,” he said.
In November last year, MzVee who had been with Lynx Entertainment for eight years, parted ways with the record label.
The 2016 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards nominee before her exit, went off the grid and took a sabbatical from active music, fueling speculations of a soured working relationship with Lynx Entertainment.
However, in a press release signed and issued by MzVee, she refuted such speculations but stressed she was taking a “much-deserved break” to re-energise, get in touch with herself and redesign her artistic expression.
“These eight years with Lynx Entertainment have been absolutely delightful and a blessing and I am glad we still hold our relationship,” a part of her statement read.
Lynx Entertainment on the other hand affirmed that the termination was mutual. They were proud to have watched MzVee grow into the woman she is now and wishes her the best.
Few months after the ‘breakup’ and MzVee is out with a single titled ‘Sherrif’. While embarking on a media tour, she attributes her absence from music to depression. According to her, she felt sick out of depression but feared to make it public because she did not know how the public would take it.
