Highlife musician, Kuami Eugene has revealed that he was filled with emotion when he was crowned ‘Best New Artiste’ and ‘Highlife Artiste of the Year’ at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
The ‘Angela’ hitmaker, said he had mixed feelings when he was called to the podium to receive his awards.
Speaking to Ohemaa Woyeje on Adom FM’s ‘Work and Happiness’, Kuami Eugene disclosed that he promised his Mum he would win an award for her so he was elated to have bagged two.
“I was very emotional. Where I came from and where I’ve gotten to, made me emotional. I had to laugh and be happy but it wasn’t so; I was happy but sad. I never thought I would win. I told my Mum I will be on the platform. She told me Amen. When I got ‘Unsung’ [award] I told her and promised to win one for her. And I got two. It was everything for me…,” he said.
Kuami Eugene added that he has attracted a lot of props from bigwigs in the music industry for his win at the VGMAs.
“People tell me I deserve it. I’ve worked hard for it. I played almost 150 shows last year. It was too much. I was told to rest…” he told Ohemaa Woyeje.
