Highlife musician, Kuami Eugene, has revealed that he was engulfed with emotion when he was crowned ‘Best New Artiste’ and ‘Highlife Artiste of the Year’ at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
The Angela hitmaker said he had mixed feelings when he was called onto the podium to receive his awards.
Speaking in an interview, Kuami Eugene disclosed that he promised his mom he would win one award for her so he was elated to have backed 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 I wasn’t so I was happy but sad. I never thought I would win. I told my mom I will be on the platform. She told me Amen,” he disclosed.
Kuami Eugene added that he has attained 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 said.
