People have lashed Amakye Dede for bestowing the King of Highlife title on budding musician Kuami Eugene because they feel he is too young and does not deserve it. Others have argued that Amakye Dede himself is no king to be sharing accolades to people, hence find everything wrong with that.
The Rockstarr however feels he deserves it more than any other person and if people are going to apportion blames, they should start with Amakye Dede because whatever happened at the VGMAs was not premeditated.
“First of all I did not crown myself. Therefore the blame would have to go to Amakye Dede for saying that this boy has done well and thus I should crown him. So for that, it is not my doing.”
“And besides, even if I am not grown, should I die before people will notice that I have done and achieved something small? Should I outgrow myself before people will say that oh this boy has done well and God bless him?”
“It was not a planned thing. I mean one, if someone say that, then the person did not give respect to Amakye Dede. So are they saying that a small boy like me can influence Amakye Dede and tell him; please crown me King?”
“He is an adult, and besides that, after we went backstage, he told me that this was from his heart, and I should hold whatever he is giving me very well. For which I thanked him. But whatever you do, people will talk so it’s fine.”
