I deserve to win all my nominations @ VGMA 2014 – Guru

Even though last two years Guru had a couple of hits with “lapaz Toyota” being a major hit nationwide, his song was not nominated for the 2013 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

This came as a shock to a lot of music lovers in Ghana, and even to those who don’t really pay attention to the Ghanaian music industry. The song was a huge success in both Ghana and on the international market, which won him the Best Song of The Year at the City People Entertainment Awards in Nigeria.

Speaking to Guru up close and personal about his music and the upcoming Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2014, he stated that;

"Last year when I didn’t get nominated or win any award when it was so obvious I should have won a couple of awards at the VGMA’s, I did not insult or disrespect the organizers of the VGMA, instead I went to the studio with a focused mind and a hardworking spirit and dropped Boys Abr3, NkwadaNkwada, let me love you and Amen, which by God’s grace were all hits nationwide; topping radio charts across the country and beyond.

"All the songs I dropped last year didn’t have any line of profanity to suggest I’m informing the youth or my fans wrongly, but they are rather entertaining and motivational lyrics that inform and educate the country and the world at large.

So if Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is really “Ghana Music Awards,” then the organizers should factor in the influence of a song nationwide, not only in Accra or any capital region, but also in all the villages and in the rest of the country. Which my song did all over the country for months, and still reigns."

So for this and the other reasons mentioned above, I deserve to win all categories I have been nominated.

Finally, he added; "I really respect the organizers of the VGMA’s and expect them to do the right thing by awarding those who clearly deserve the awards.

Am not sure an artiste has to insults organizers or any media house before they are noticed or are awarded what they deserve; and even if it happened, it is not right because it proves that the organizers don’t know what they are doing and also give the awards a bad name. But as I said earlier, I respect the organizers and believe they will do the right thing by awarding me what I have worked for."
