Ghanaian dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has in the past week heaped a lot of praise on the Ghana Music Awards USA (GMA-USA), comparing the awards design to the most popular GRAMMYs.
The comparison was done during an interview with CEO of the GMA-USA, Dennis Boafo, where he confirmed Stonebwoy’s praise. He further said that such honor will motivate the GMA-USA organizers to go beyond the normal expectations.
The comparison was made by the dancehall star after he received his nominee plaque from the GMA-USA organizers as a way of recognizing him for getting nominations in several categories in the forthcoming global award scheme. Nonetheless, the dancehall star strongly believes that the nominee plague is something that is only done by Grammys.
“I don’t want to mention any of the other local awards but GMA-USA is not competing on the local level people are used to. We said from the beginning that our level is the Grammys and not any of these mediocre awards schemes you see every day.
The difference is obvious and a huge artiste like Stonebwoy can see the difference and he said so himself,” he said.
Livingstone Etse Satekla, popularly known professionally as Stonebwoy, hailed the sleek design of the plaque and the forethought of the GMA-USA organizing team for inspiring themselves beyond the local awards.
