Ghanaian rapper and godfather of hiplife music, Reginald Yaw Asante Ossei, widely known as Reggie Rockstone, has asserted that he is not an award guy.
He said to Dr. Cann during a phone interview on Showbiz Xtra that, he is not very much into awards although he does appreciate them. This came after he was asked by Dr. Cann, how many awards he has bagged since the genesis of his career.
Rockstone said, “I’m old school. During my time, if you put out a song and people love and patronize it a lot, that’s all the award you need. If you go somewhere and people are happy when your song is played, that’s your award”.
However, he stated that he has received many awards, so many that he cannot remember or keep count.
“I’m not much of an awards guy. I appreciate it and I am grateful, but I am more about the people”, the legend added.
The ‘grandpa’ of hiplife music, Reggie Rockstone, was honored with the Outstanding Achievement Award at the just ended 2020 edition of the 3music awards.
