Grammy Awards nominee Rocky Dawuni has come forth to clear the air on the confusion on how an artist makes the cut in the prestigious Grammy Awards nomination list.

Speaking on Citi TV, Rocky Dawuni said that being featured on a nominated album does not guarantee a slot of the artist as a nominee. This is based on the rules established by the Recording Academy and has always been followed to the letter.

‘There’s a lot of confusion as you would understand, Grammy nomination is for a body of work, so there is a difference between a nominee for a Grammy and also featuring to be part of a song of a Grammy-nominated album. You have contributed to the song, but you are not a nominee. The thing is I am not the one saying it; you should go to the Academy website and see who are the nominees.’
