Kumawood’s star actor and musician Kwadwo Nkansah, popularly known as Lil Win, has declared he will charge organizers of industry awards who nominate him.
According to him, many of these award schemes are just avenues for the organizers to make money, without honest consideration to individuals whose hard work deserve recognition.
He said he does not focus on winning awards but just pays attention to delivering on the best of his ability in his work.
“Can you imagine that someone will organize an award which includes Ghanaian actors and Nigerians and the person decides to award only the Nigerians when we know certainly that we have worked hard over the years?,” Lil Win said.
In a report by MyNewsGH.com, the actor who had reportedly received a nomination at the Ghana Gospel Music Awards for his recently released ‘Ladder’ song, stated he will not be upset if he did not win in his category.
He asserted that he will not be dissuaded from continuing to produce his best work, as some of the award schemes refuse to honor people unless they ‘grease the palm’ of the organizers.
“I will start charging people who nominate me for awards because they depend on our popularity to make money and at the end they will give the awards to their cronies rather than those who deserve it. I will charge them because it will be through my inclusion that my fans will come for the awards,” Lil Win added.
The actor recently made some donations to Kumawood veteran actor King Aboagye Brenya and one-time local gospel sensation, Prophet Seth Frimpong.
