Kumi Guitar, a hi-life artiste from the stables of Zylofon media, has said he felt sad when he heard of Kuami Eugene, Kidi and King Promise being touted as hi-life artistes on the January 10, 2019 edition of Zylofon Showbiz Agenda.

Kumi Guitar, the “Betweener” hitmaker, was speaking on the issue of some artiste being wrongly placed under the Hi-Life Category by some award agencies.

He answered, “I felt sad”, when the host of the show, Sammy Flex, asked how he felt when he heard some pundits on the show mentioning names like Kuami Eugene, Kidi and King Promise under the Hi-Life Category when given the opportunity to award some musicians in the showbiz industry.

Kumi explained that these artists are very good but feel they don’t wholly fit the hi-life genre even though they churn out hi-life music.

He further cited the instance of Wutah telling kuami Eugene to take a very good notice of the award being given to him as a reminder to Eugene of the category he’s being placed under when Wutah presented to him the Best Hi-life song of the Year.

He went ahead in another instance to condemn the diction in Medikal’s “Aboa, Woto Nono / Woroworo” track. He explained that it doesn’t contain the right kind of words for children to consume.

The host of the show in a way supported Kumi’s notion by citing a 13-year-old kid who called into that very show to request for, that song which he felt wasn’t right.

Kumi Guitar, however, asked each one to be true to his/her genre and stop touting the hi-life genre to be dead as people still jam to tracks from Amakye Dede, Kojo Antwi and the likes.
