Kuami Eugene has fired back at critics of Sonnie Badu after they bashed him for celebrating his success at the VGMAs.
Dr Sonnie Badu was bashed for celebrating Kuami Eugene after he won the VGMAs Artiste Of the Year Award. Many gospel stars got angry because the Man of God chose to celebrate Eugene as against other gospel artistes.
Gospel musician, Celestine Donkor on her part said that it’s hypocritical on the side of Gospel musician and pastor, Dr Sonnie Badu to congratulate a secular artiste like Kuami Eugene for winning a VGMAs while he left out fellow Gospel musicians who also won at the awards night.
The Lynx Entertainment signee has reacted to the trend finally.
Speaking on Hitz Fm with Franky 5 on “This Is Gospel” show as reported by Gospel 2 Me, Kuami Eugene revealed that, he has a stronger relationship with Dr Sonnie Badu and as such, he was delighted receiving a congratulatory message from him.
He further disclosed that he communicates with Dr Sonnie Badu on a regular basis.
“I felt good on my side, Sonnie Badu is a reputable person, He is Sonnie Badu and that one alone should give me joy. I won artiste of the year and Sonnie Badu out of who he comes out to congratulate me, I think it is perfect on my side. I felt people didn’t understand Sonnie Badu when he posted me, the fact that he wished me is his personal choice. I thank God He is quite close to saying congratulations Kwame”.
Speaking on why Sonnie Badu opted to wish him above the other gospel artiste, Eugene said:
“Sonnie Badu has won enough plagues and non was there to celebrate him. I and Sonnie are very tight, He is that person that calls to encourage me to keep working hard. If I happened to receive a message from him after the awards, I’m just grateful.”
