Amakye Dede crowned Kuami Eugene as Highlife icon at the VGMAs 2019

the highly anticipated event, the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has come to an abrupt end following a fight which broke out between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.

However, one of the most exciting moments at the VGMA was when veteran Highlife singer, Abrantie Amakye Dede aka ‘Serious’ crowned Kuami Eugene as the next highlife icon on stage.

During his performance with Kuami Eugene, Amakye Dede paused to say that “he thought high-life music was dead, but Kuami Eugene has restored hope in him”.

He went ahead to put a crown on Kuami Eugene’s head and blessed him to continue keeping the genre alive.
