Nigerian Afro-beats artiste, Mr Eazi has stated emphatically that he would prefer to lose at the Grammy Awards and jubilate than crying over Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) because organisers of the event (Charterhouse) are jokers.
According to the ‘Pour Me Water’ hit singer, the scheme is not a well-recognised one for him to worry himself over why he won no award at the 2017 edition.
“Charterhouse is full of jokers, how can you conclude that I am not a big artiste when I organized the biggest event (Life is Eazi Detty Rave concert) same year you nominated me for ‘Best African Artiste of the Year‘ category at the VGMA? Mr. Eazi quizzed.
“If eno sey ebi Grammy wey dem nominate me wey afi say ooh I go fi win this Grammy then if I lose, it’s two things, I will say aah I’m supposed to win this award but I will be a happy boy because I got nominated for the Grammy’s and that’s the Grammy but if it’s some other awards…” he said on the Delay Show.
Answering why he could not perform at the 2017 edition of the VGMAs, Mr. Eazi said he was not surprised he lost the ‘Best African Artiste of the Year‘ award to ‘Mad Over You’ hit-maker, RunTown because Charterhouse wanted him to performance free.
“They called my manager for me to perform at last year’s VGMAs and I told them I was on tour in the USA and if they can book flight for me to come since they were not going to give me a dime but they couldn’t oblige to that and I had stay off because I had a show that was going to pay me good money.”
To buttress his claim that Charterhouse, organisers of the award scheme are jokers, he recounted organizing a successful show in Ghana which recorded huge numbers and for Charterhouse to assume that he is not a ‘big cat’ is unfathomable.
He said at this moment of his life, his only focus is to make his fans happy and make a lot of money.
Mr. Eazi is a Nigerian songwriter and entrepreneur who came into the limelight when he released his hit single ‘Skin Tight’ which featured songstress Efya.
