Singer Mr. Drew has responded to claims by Kuami Eugene that he is an attention seeker. The latter had previously lashed out at the former for saying he is an expert at stealing songs by other people.
During an interview on Okay FM about weeks ago, Drew said he should not be compared to the Lynx Entertainment artiste. He further accused Eugene of theft.
Responding on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM to the things said about him by Mr. Drew, Kuami Eugene said: “I think he needs that attention and he wishes I give it to him. I give him that. Mr. Drew, you have it.”
Drew has responded to the claim in an interview with Sammy Flex on Zylofon FM.
“I want to say that I don’t need his attention or anything. When you look at what he is doing and what I am doing, it’s different,” said Mr. Drew.
During a chat with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM while responding to allegations, he claimed that he is known for using other artists’ compositions in songs that he releases.
In 2020, the official video for Drew’s song, Eat, featuring Stonebwoy was deleted off Youtube after a report that it illegally sampled ‘Love Riddim’ by Nigerian-American artiste, Rotimi. He was accused of copying the sound of No Dulling by Keche, featuring Kuami Eugene.
In his defense, Mr. Drew said he is not the first artiste to ‘steal’ songs belonging to other artistes, and that Kuami Eugene does the same.
“Kuami Eugene started stealing songs before me. He has a scholarship in it,” retorted Drew to Abeiku Santana on Okay FM.
