The CEO of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah, says the media is to be blamed for alleged the song plagiarism suit brought against his artiste, Kuami Eugene.
Speaking to JoyNews’ Doreen Avio, monitored by Enewsghana.com, he stated that the media is fond of publishing stories about the young artiste from people seeking attention.
“I want to give a shout out to the media houses and let you guys know that you are responsible for this. Because, the truth is that, when you don’t protect your child, you allow people to enter your house to attack them.”
“Kuami Eugene keeps getting attacked regularly because they have come to see that when you attack Kuami Eugene, you make news. He has talkability, so; people take advantage of that.”
His comment comes after Nigerian artiste Oduma Essan sued Kuami Eugene for allegedly plagiarising his song, Show Body.
According to reports, the singer claims Kuami Eugene’s ‘Show Body’ featuring Falz on the Son of Africa Album released on October 9, plagiarising parts of his song, which also has the same title.
However, Richie stated that the management is not perturbed by the suit brought against his artiste.
He explained that if a person listens to the two songs, the only similarity they will identify is their title.
“So this artiste has taken it to court, and our lawyer sent everything to show them that this case makes no sense. So, it is up to the court to decide.”
Richie stated that people who want some “juicy” news for some attention will attempt to get the media to publish anything.
He said that it is high time the media ignores “rubbish” news that only aims at tarnishing the image of his artiste.
“The media houses keep publishing some of these things. But trust me, if the media houses stop paying attention to the ‘rubbish stories’, they will stop bringing the rubbish stories.”
