“Though I did that, it was not my will to do so. They forced me to crown Kuami Eugene,” he said in an interview on Asaase Radio.

“I even gave the crown they handed over to me to someone to put it down, but they later said, no I have to crown him, and I did it,” he added.

The Veteran high-life musician had crowned Lynx Entertainment signee, Kuami Eugene as the future of high-life music at the 2019 VGMAs.
