Forget Losing Out OF This Years BET Awards Nomination And Work Harder – Fuse ODG

British based Ghanaian artiste Fuse Odg has sent and advice to his friends in the music industry in Ghana, to forget about not getting a nomination in this year’s Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards and focus on working hard on their craft.

The “Azonto” hitmaker remarks come on the back of Ghana’s inability to receive a nomination in this year’s edition of the BET awards. Setting the record straight, Ghana had had a representative in every year since the introduction of the BET’s ‘Best International Act’ category eight years ago with the exception of this year. In 2012, Sarkodie won the category in question whiles Stonebwoy grabbed that of 2015.

Speaking to hosts of Starr Drive, Fuse said the BET awards should not be the measurement of the success of Ghanaian Music.

“I don’t think BET should be the measurement of success or how great our music is. Some of the greatest Musicians never received an award, Bob Marley is one of the greatest musicians but he never received an award. I think we need to stop praising these platforms and start building our own platforms and reward our artists.

“BET is not here and they don’t understand what goes on here in Ghana, they are not real, they don’t respect Africa in the first place. Ghana has influenced African music worldwide and BET is not going to be the measurement as to how influential Ghanaian music is,” he fumed.

Ghana failed to get nominated for this year’s event and has got people asking why the snub.
