King Promise, real name Gregory Nii Bortey Newman has expressed his sentiments about why he has been snubbed and ignored by various award schemes in Ghana despite his fame and hard work.
During an interview with the media icon, Deloris Frimpong Manso on the Delay Show, King Promise stated that there have been numerous conversations held by industry players about him not involving himself in almost all industry works in Ghana.
He said that some people claim that he feels very superior of himself to mingle with music works relating to the industry, hence they would teach him a lesson by snubbing him on award schemes.
King Promise revealed that he had the most streamed Ghanaian album of all time, yet he as not nominated in the “Album of the year” category that particular year.
He also stated that when he had no album to back him up in winning on some award schemes, he was nominated in the “Artiste of the year” category which makes no sense to him given the criteria required for that category.
He also said that he trends after almost every award show in Ghana because his fans are mostly not pleased when he is not nominated or fails to win awards for his hard work but whichever way this is, he’s not bothered.
