Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy popularly known as Livingstone Etse Satekla, has been battered heavily on social media for flattering himself with Grammy nominations for his participation as a featured artist on 3 nominated Grammy Reggae albums.

The nominees for the 64th Grammy Awards were announced yesterday, November 23rd, ahead of the Grammy ceremony scheduled to happen on January 31st.

Many Ghanaians observed the unveiling of the nominations in anticipation for a Ghanaian act to be mentioned but unfortunately, that was not the case.

However, Stonebwoy who contributed as a featured act on 3 out of 5 nominees for Album of the year quickly took to Twitter to make a post that suggests that he bagged 3 nominations when in an actual sense he did not.

His tweet read:

And At the @RecordingAcad @stonebwoyfeatures on 3 Albums Out of 5 To Get Nominated.. should Either of the albums Win… Do The maths.. #Ghana #BhimNation

The albums "Pamoja" by Etana, "Live N Livin" by Sean Paul, and "Royal" by Jesse Royal each scored a nomination in the "Best Reggae Album" category.

Unfortunately for the Afrimma Award-winning artist, netizens did not receive his tweet with much pleasure but rather disappointment and shock as they believe Bhim is beyond trying to stay relevant by claiming to be nominated for the Awards.

Reactions

Many replied to his post telling the artist not to pride himself with another person's feat but rather work hard to also have his body of work nominated.

@BanascoTroy tweeted:

Ghanaian artist always settling for less. We wanna see your own records being nominated for the Grammys not ur 12-second verses on other artists demma track.

@energy_giver

Ok I’ll do the maths. The maths says that doesn’t make you a nominee nor a winner. Just read the category definition to stop misinforming the fans and public.

@Solomonmusik

It's funny how you are doing this yourself smiling face with smiling eyes... This shd have been done by one of your core fans or perhaps a team member.
