Big Nigerian Artistes Also Don’t Have Grammy Awards - King Promise
Artiste, King Promise, calls for leniency from pundits who say Ghanaian artistes are not doing well because they haven’t won Grammy Awards
King Promise is asking for time on behalf of all Ghanaian artists concerning the Grammy Awards.
Ghanaian artists have been having to live in the shadow of their Nigerian counterparts after Burna Boy and Wizkid bagged Grammy Awards at the most recent edition.
Pundits were quick to criticise Ghanaian artists as they can no longer claim to be in the same league with the Nigerians since ni Ghanaian has ever won the award.
Although some have been nominated, the likes of Rocky Dawuni, none have come close to clinching the award.
King Promise has now made a case that only a handful of Nigerians have it too.
He criticised the pundits for making it seem like all Nigerian musicians are better than Ghanaian musicians just because two of them have won the prestigious international award.
According to him, only Burna Boy and Wizkid won it this time so there's no need for unnecessary pressure on Ghanaian artists to win it.
“Most Ghanaian musicians should not target only Ghanaians as their audience rather, their target audience should be everyone if they want to go international”.
“We see other Africans market their brands with global skill and the music speaks for it as well, it cuts across, it’s not just for a local audience and there are so many things to take into consideration. Not every Nigerian got it as well, there are other big Nigerian artists who did not get it”. He maintained.
The Grammy Awards are the most prestigious music award show featured each year.
The Grammys are presented by The Recording Academy and recognize musicians of every age and every genre. Each year, an award is given in dozens of categories.
