This came as a shock to a lot of music lovers in
Ghana, and even to those who don't really pay
attention to the Ghanaian music industry. The
song was a huge success in both Ghana and on
the international market, which won him the
Best Song of The Year at the City People
Entertainment Awards in Nigeria.
Speaking to Guru up close and personal about
his music and the upcoming Vodafone Ghana
Music Awards 2014, he stated that;
"Last year when I didn't get nominated or win
any award when it was so obvious I should have
won a couple of awards at the VGMA's, I did not
insult or disrespect the organizers of the VGMA,
instead I went to the studio with a focused mind
and a hardworking spirit and dropped Boys
Abr3, NkwadaNkwada, let me love you and
Amen, which by God's grace were all hits
nationwide; topping radio charts across the
country and beyond.
"All the songs I dropped last year didn't have
any line of profanity to suggest I'm informing
the youth or my fans wrongly, but they are
rather entertaining and motivational lyrics that
inform and educate the country and the world at large.
So if Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is really
"Ghana Music Awards," then the organizers
should factor in the influence of a song
nationwide, not only in Accra or any capital
region, but also in all the villages and in the rest
of the country. Which my song did all over the
country for months, and still reigns."
So for this and the other reasons mentioned
above, I deserve to win all categories I have
Finally, he added; "I really respect the
organizers of the VGMA's and expect them to do
the right thing by awarding those who clearly
deserve the awards.
Am not sure an artiste has to insults organizers
or any media house before they are noticed or
are awarded what they deserve; and even if it
happened, it is not right because it proves that
the organizers don't know what they are doing
and also give the awards a bad name. But as I
said earlier, I respect the organizers and believe
they will do the right thing by awarding me what
I have worked for."
