Burniton Music boss Stonebwoy has finally broken his silence after he won fewer awards at the 2019 edition of the 3Music Awards as compared to others.
Stonebwoy is not happy with how he was treated by the organisers of the 3Music Awards after his relatively poor showing.
The Ashaiman-born singer after winning three awards at the event which came off at the Fantasy Dome on March 30, 2019, said he was simply disappointed.
For the 2019 3Music awards, the Bhim Nation president lost heavily to his sworn-rival Shatta Wale after the latter grabbed eight awards.
However, Stonebwoy in an interview on Showbiz A-Z on Joy FM, Saturday, May 12, 2019, said he strongly believes that there were a couple of awards that should have gone to him.
“People’s awards are sitting in people’s homes,” he noted and explained and urged organisers of the 3Music Awards and other awards to eschew mediocrity.
“In Ghana sometimes mediocrity puts people who have to reward and award things in a box where they just lose it all and have to play by that but that will not bring any benefit, that will not bring any hope to those who are looking up to us. They would only have to turn to do mediocre stuff because that is being rewarded,” Stonebwoy said.
“So I will beg off all these awards organisers to try so hard in their own way even if they have to go out of their lines once they believe and know that this is the right thing because the right is devoid of influence…the right thing will vindicate itself?,” he added.
He advised further advised that “It’s our music but the role that you play could be a per cent that adds up but it actually makes a big difference…you guys hold a very huge spot where when favouritism come inside and bias come inside and influence come inside it will definitely look someway.”
“I was disappointed definitely but I kept to myself I was not going to say anything,” he added and revealed that it was his manager who vented his anger at the organisers.
According to him, even though the organisers later admitted that the awards did not go entirely well, he urged them “to reward hard work.”
Stonebwoy shot to fame some years and has won many awards from award schemes including BET and AFRIMA.
