Boss of Lynxx Entertainment, Riche Mensah has defended his artiste Kuame Eugene in matters arising between Kuame Eugene and hip-life artiste Guru.

According to the Lynxx Boss, his artiste Kuame Eugene did not disrespect Guru in any way to get people angry at him.

There has been a cold war going between Guru and Lynxx Entertainment for some time now. Guru in an interview some time ago accused Lynxx Entertainment of sabotaging his career some 10 years ago when he was denied an award meant for him. In a recent interview, Kuame Eugene when asked if he would consider featuring Guru in a song indicated that it wasn’t possible since Guru has been disrespectful to his boss.

Taking to facebook to make a comment, Richie explained that his artiste said nothing wrong and was only making a factual point. Explaining issues in a long write up, he wrote;

I normally stay quiet in most situations but this time I only feel it’s right I say something. Guru asked Lynx for a feature with either KiDi or Kuami Eugene, but the request was denied.

He then went from one media house to another insulting myself and other members of Lynx management, even to the extent of accusing us of sabotaging his career for the past 10years. He spun stories which implied we have some extreme power in the industry to vitiate someone’s career. As usual my team and I stuck to our usual demeanour and stayed mute.

When Kuami Eugene was asked in an interview if he would feature Guru, he simply said he couldn’t because Guru had insulted me consistently, and it wouldn’t be right to do a feature with someone who was disrespecting his boss. Let’s call a spade a spade.

There was nothing disrespectful in what Eugene said. I’m a responsible leader, and I would have chastised my artist if he spoke out of turn. So my question is, those attacking Eugene for allegedly disrespecting his elder Guru, where were they when Guru was attacking myself and my reputation in a disrespectful manner? We talk about unity in the industry and then we go around bringing each other down. I personally have no problem with Guru.

Never have and never will. I like to conserve my energy towards constant success and development than to waste my time on petty squabbling. Guru is a natural hitmaker, and doesn’t need KiDi nor Kuami Eugene on his song to make a hit. So there really should be no offence taken in any of this. So can we just drop all this wahala and everyone go back to making hits for Ghana.
