Highlife artist, Kuami Eugene has revealed that he has no plans to collaborate with fellow musician, Guru, due to disrespectful comments made by Guru about him and his family.
In an interview with Delay, Kuami Eugene explained that Guru had insulted his being and craft, as well as made derogatory comments about his parents, including calling his mother a ‘slut’ and labeling his father a deadbeat.
The issue arose when Guru proposed a collaboration with Kuami Eugene, which was declined by Kuami Eugene’s manager, Richie. Guru reportedly took offense to this and proceeded to insult Kuami Eugene and his family.
In response, Guru recorded a diss song, ‘Who Born Dog’, in which he labeled Kuami Eugene as disrespectful, talentless, and a brown-noser.
Despite pleas from some industry players for the two to reconcile and collaborate, Kuami Eugene has maintained that he has no plans to work with Guru or have him in his personal space.
The Highlife act has stated that he will not engage in collaborations with those who disrespect him and his family.
This incident highlights the importance of mutual respect in the music industry and the need for artists to handle disagreements and conflicts with professionalism and tact.
