Rapper Medikal says he was “devastated” when he went home empty-handed at the 2017 Ghana Music Awards even though he had seven nominations.
“I felt devastated but I understood that. I recorded like 100 songs and only a few made me. But the awards don’t make you who you are. Shatta is my good friend and he hasn’t got that awards but he is going up. I am an entertainer so I won’t let those things bring me down…” recalled the rapper to Andy Dosty on Hitz FM.
He also spoke about whether he expects to win an award during the upcoming edition of the awards scheme and criticism about his lyrics.
‘I don’t even know if my team filed for it. It’s not anything I know. I have a lot of information occupying my mind. I am a member of MUSIGA. I don’t know about GHAMRO. Criticisms don’t stress me. Just as battery is positive and negative I need it all to fuel my fire. It doesn’t let me down. I need it in my system. If no one is talking about me I feel bad.”
