Bullgod, founder of BullHaus Entertainment has called Ruby Amanfu's ascendancy to the presidency of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy, organisers of the Grammy Awards as good news for Ghana.
On Tuesday, YEN.com.gh reported the news about Amanfu, a Ghanaian-American singer.
In an interview with YEN.com.gh, the talent manager, born Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson touted the news as a good one for Ghana and the continent of Africa.
"Means a lot to Ghana, It’s good for Ghana. Obviously, her attention will be drawn home," BullGod said.
"...and take a critical look at what we do and if it’s worthy, we will get a fair opportunity of representation. Not for Ghana alone, Africa as a whole stands to benefit from this."
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Amanfu is expected to lead operations of the organisation behind the world's most prestigious music awards scheme in the city best known as the home of country music.
"To the outsiders, the misfits, and the awkward souls ~ this one’s for us. To the ones who know a lot of people, without a lot of people really knowing them ~ this one’s for us," reads a post by the Grammy-nominated singer.
"I am the new president of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy. Running for this position called to me and wouldn’t let me shut my ears. I’ll do what I can in these next two years to make more room on the porch for all of us."
She was born and raised in Ghana until the age of three when her parents relocated to the United States. She provided backing vocals on Beyonce's Don't Hurt Yourself.
Amanfu also co-wrote Hard Place with Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter, H.E.R. It earned her a nomination at the 2019 Soul Train Music Awards.
