Popular Kumawood actress, TV presenter and musician, Emelia Brobbey has disclosed that her relationship with VGMA ‘Artiste of the Year’ Kuami Eugene is a professional one and not romantic as people are speculating.
She revealed this while talking about her new single ‘Emelia’ which was produced by Kuame Eugene after they previously worked on her song ‘Makoma’.
Speaking to Graphic Showbiz about the inspiration behind her new single ‘Emelia’, the actress cum singer said;
“I released Emelia two weeks ago and it already has over 150,000 views. I have monitored the comments under the video and there was no dislike and that means I’m doing something right. From the airplay, comments and feedback, I know that Ghanaians love my stuff,” she said.
Talking about her latest work, she also disclosed that she sought permission from the late Highlife veteran, Nana Kwame Ampadu before sampling his Emelia song.
“I went to him with my team and told him I wanted to use my own name but I knew he had a song titled Emelia so he should grant me permission.
“And he was like, ‘I love you from afar, I support you so even if you want the whole song, you can take it’. But I wanted the Emelia verse so I would say inspiration comes from Nana Kwame Ampadu”, she stated.
Emelia further said she’s looking forward to working with heavyweights in the music industry soon.
“I have actually done something with Wendy Shay, Kuami Eugene, Dada KD, and Prince Bright but I want more of such collaborations. I’m thankful to God because a lot has gone on but He has been my strength.
“And I want to say thank you to all my fans, they have been so supportive since day one when I started movies through to being a TV presenter and now a musician, they’ve still got my back,” she said.
