Ghanaian musician, Armstrong Affum, widely known as Opanka, is not depending on anyone for validation.
Speaking to Foster Romanus on eTV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show that Newshuntermag.com has chanced upon, the ‘Eka Aba Fie’ composer stated that he won’t rely on someone’s validation if he knows he is the best.
He indicated that awards are not part of his top priorities.
Opanka takes solace in inspiring others with his craft.
“If I’m able to inspire people, win souls and get genuine love from fans, that is my award,” he averred.
“I don’t need someone’s validation to know that I’m the best, and I feel like no human being needs to wait for anyone’s validation. It is just an institution that they have set up, so if they decide to pick some names and I’m not included, I respect that, but I believe in my craft, and people give me genuine feedback so if I’m able to inspire people, that is more than an award to me because I’ve achieved my purpose,” Opanka further stated.
