Renowned Colombian rapper and singer Andres Eduardo Martinez, popularly known in the showbiz world as MC Dementor, has refused to call Kuami Eugene a rock star of Ghana music.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with MzGee on the entertainment segment of the TV3 New Day morning show, the Colombiana rapper said that Ghana has always known Kuami Eugene as a rockstar. Nevertheless, Sarkodie and himself are the only real Ghanaian rockstars. He further explained that being able to infuse Ghanaian English into his rap music has made him a rockstar but not Kuami Eugene.
He said, “No, he is not a rockstar. He sings nice and can call himself an afro-pop star but not a rockstar. Because rockstar is somebody that makes rocks, and his music is not rock. In fact, he can put something related to rock, but in trending, he is not related to a rockstar. Bogota is a rockstar. I am a rockstar. The real rockstar.
“I am watching artiste on the internet, and I saw Sarkodie. I must say that he is dope. I can say that Sarkodie is our rockstar, and I am another rockstar. And yeah, the way he raps, his voice is hard and on point. and I saw that this is the country I should be in,”
For several years, the rapper who has been in Ghana has been able to feature several Kumerican artists on a song dubbed ‘Kumerica Escobar’.
