Rocky Dawuni has mentioned that he and a couple of Ghanaian artistes are known globally but are not celebrated in Ghana and to make matters worst, they are not booked for major shows especially during the festive seasons.
He cited the likes of Wiyaala, Sherifa Gunu, Worlasi, King Ayisoba, Atongo Zimba and himself who are doing well outside the shores of Ghana but are sidelined when it comes to headlining mega shows across the length and breadth of the country.
“In Ghana, we only book the trending artistes for shows, especially in December which is not really cool. The likes of Wiyaala, Sherifa Gunu, myself, Worlasi, King Ayisoba, Atongo Zimba and other artistes I know are brilliant but how often do they get booked in Ghana?
“We are not being fair to these artistes and we must make it an effort to include them,” he said.
Talking about his Grammy nomination, Rocky Dawuni, who has songs such as Woara, In Ghana, Beautiful People, My Baby, Ghost Town, Burn One, Rock Your Soul, Nairobi and Turn It Up said he was looking forward to making Ghana proud at the awards which will come off in April this year.
“A win for me is a win for Ghana so I am just praying that I emerge the winner and make Ghana proud. Getting a nomination is not new to me but I just pray that Ghana wins this award,” he stated.
