Ace music producer, Da Hammer, known in real life as Edward Nana Opoku Osei blasts the media for being silence on other Ghanaian artiste who was also nominated in the Grammy, but make noise about Rocky Dawuni, as if he was the only Ghanaian artiste nominated in Grammys 2022.
According to the record producer, the media should not pretend Rocky Dawuni was the only Ghanaian nominee at the Grammys. He disclosed in a social media post that, the like of Nana Benyin who was on the iconic Donda album by Kanye West was also nominated in the Grammys, hence he should also be talked about.
In a lengthy on Facebook, Da Hammer of Last Two Music Group wrote:
Are we just gonna pretend Rocky was the only Ghanaian nominee at the Grammy’s?
Are we gonna act like Nana Benyin aka Nabeyin wasn’t nominated for a Grammy for the 2nd time this year as well?
Are we gonna pretend a Ghanaian producer wasn’t on the iconic Donda album by Kanye West?
Can’t find a single blog or Ghanaian website headlining Nabeyin’s involvement in the Grammys and that’s a shame… especially when that’s exactly the kind of story our young artists and producers need to be reading for inspiration… for them to know that it’s actually possible, that u can come from humble beginnings and end up on a Kanye West album as a major contributor. That you can end up in the same room with greatest who ever did it, on music’s biggest night.
I know bloggers naturally post deeds of already famous ppl to attract readers to their websites but surely it must be your civic duty to inform us about Ghana related issues that are oblivious to us as well… issues that can uplift a lot of our ppl with inferiority complex and low self esteem.
Just because Nabeyin isn’t a loud mouth doesn’t mean his achievements should be overlooked. Otherwise what’s the point of a blog, really.
Nabeyin is out there putting in work with Credits ranging from Kanye West, Drake, Nas, The Game, Miguel, Reason, Dave East, Nav, Boogie, G Perico etc… while our boys are here thinking these artist are out of reach.
let’s claim our own and use him to inspire our young ones pls.
Ghana bloggers please the young boy in konongo needs to read about this… as well as the youth in Nabeyin’s hometown of Apam.
the defense rests
