Conspicuously missing in action rapper, Opanka has expressed how he really feels about his failure to win awards especially Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
He was asked during an interview on eTV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show how he feels about not being nominated among the Best Rapper category in the just ended VGMAs.
According to him, the success of his music life cannot be measured by the number of awards he receives but by the number of lives he is able to touch.
“If I’m able to inspire people, win souls and get genuine love from fans, that is my award”, he told Foster Romanus.
Opanka insisted that no matter what anyone thinks or whoever the Best Rapper Award is presented to, he believes in himself and his craft and believes he is the best rapper; hence, he does not need anyone or any award’s validation to be sure.
“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”, the rapper said.
The truth is, Dadie Opanka was the icing on the cake or better still delightful to watch and listen to in the days of freestyle.
Thus, the time Sarkodie and Tema rappers were on fire. But Opanka switching from freestyle kind of music to do mainstream music was a curse for obvious reasons as he has not been able to produce any significant hit song for the past years!
