Ice Prince has opened up on his collaboration with Ghanaian Highlife artiste Kuami Eugene.
Rumours about song theft broke out two years ago alleging that the Lynx entertainment artiste had stolen a song from the ‘Aboki’ hitmaker, where some fans were hoping the Nigerian superstar files a copyright complaint to claim it.
The song ‘Wish me well’ was released by Kuami Eugene in 2018 drawing inspiration from Ice Prince’s ‘Juju’. It was a monster hit which sparked controversy on social media with some Nigerians alleging that the Ghanaian highlife artiste had lifted lyrics from the ‘Juju’ song word for word.
Others also accuse Kuami of relying on other people’s song to make a hit and that he is not talented enough to make good songs.
For all this, while Eugene was being trolled on social media, Ice had not come out yet to respond to comments made by fans that Kuami had stolen his song until just recently.
In an interview with MzGee on Tv3’s new day, Ice Prince explained that he was in America when he saw his fans tagging him with a song ‘Wish me well’ they claim Kuami Eugene had stolen from him and that he should take legal action.
According to him, it was his first time hearing about the ‘Angela’ hitmaker and so went ahead to listen to the ‘wish me well’ song and he loved it.
He then reached out to his team in Ghana to link up with Kuami Eugene so he can put his verse on the song for collaboration between Kuami and himself.
“When I listened to the song, I liked it and wanted to jump on it so I linked up with my team in Ghana for them to reach out to Kuami Eugene’s team and the collaboration happened.”
“I don’t see anything wrong with Kuami’s version of the song, to me it was an honour to see another artiste sampling my song ”
Adding that the Ghanian highlife artiste didn’t steal the song and is looking forward to collaborating with him on another song.
Meanwhile, Ice Prince has been signed onto a new American record label.
