Amakye Dede disclosed that at first he even made an attempt to pass the crown that had been presented to him onto a different person while refusing to take part in the act. He eventually had to perform the coronation against his will, nevertheless.

“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.

By disclosing this information, the Su fre wo Nyame hitmaker shed insight on the dynamics that existed behind the scenes prior to the contentious crowning moment.

The information deepens the ongoing debates and criticisms surrounding Kuami Eugene’s selection as the next highlife king.


It wasn’t my will; I was forced to crown Kuami Eugene as Prince of Highlife. When they gave me the crown, I put it aside because I didn’t want to do that.
