Not winning awards doesn’t affect me- Strongman

Despite receiving four straight nominations for Best Rapper of the Year at the prestigious Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), Strongman lamented his inability to take home his first-ever trophy.

The ex-SarkCess Music signee believes that despite his exceptional abilities, the VGMAs has repeatedly eluded him, leaving him to wonder what further he can do to obtain the desired honour.

Despite being the only person in Ghana to have gotten four straight nominations for Best Rapper, the rapper said in an interview with TV3’s New Day that he had tried everything to win a VGMA but still hadn’t succeeded. He said the following in the interview:

“Four consecutive nominations is not an easy task, I am the only one on this soil, the only one in Ghana to have four years of four Best Rapper nominations.

For me not picking the award that is also another story because personally, I don’t know what I am supposed to do again. Because I have been doing it, for me to stay that consented for these number of years, it speaks volumes and I am not angry I don’t win.

They have accepted me, as I keep saying, for you to be in the nominations lists without missing out because every rapper in Ghana has missed out, it should tell you I have been consistent and accepted.”

Strongman argued that the award system is unfair because the board members typically make the ultimate decision on who is recognized and not on the basis of merit or support from the public.

“Right now, the award is given based on the decision of the board so it is not about the fans anymore, and honestly, I don’t really care that much, it is not taking anything away from me.

Awards don’t affect my music; I drop and I still see the results. Awards give an artist three things, it gives you a competitive advantage over your colleagues, it makes you feel good about yourself and it makes you feel like your sweat has been rewarded for all your emotions.”
