Angela hit maker Kuami Eugene has been under pressure this past few days after he was accused of stealing Grammy-nominated Malian musician, Sidiki Diabaté’s 2016 hit single, ‘Fais moi Confiance’ for his latest release ‘Confusion’.
Initially Kuami Eugene was bashed by industry analysts and music fans for plagiarizing Sidiki Diabaté’s song but a section of Ghanaians have come out to defend the young chap.
Kuami Eugene hasn't stolen any song. We copy music, even producers copy beat. Confusion is a great song by all standard
