King Paluta Says Bringing Grammy Awards to Africa Will Diminish The Value: "He Is Right"

  • Some social media users have commented on the trending video posted by UTV

Ghanaian musician Thomas Adjei Wireko, popularly called King Paluta, has shared his opinion about Grammy Africa and how it will promote the African music industry.

Speaking on the United Showbiz program, King Paluta said,

They should keep the awards where it is because anything that the white man decides to bring to Africa loses its value. We want to fly out of our country to go and receive the awards. That is prestige and that is what we want.
Also, the big music executives will not be attending these award events if they are held in Africa so how do we benefit? I want to win the GRAMMY and catch the eyes of big music executives like Sony Music and if GRAMMYS is now in Africa, then how do I achieve that?
