Hiplife legend, Obrafour has advised Musicians in the country to make music that will have a positive impact on the lives of listeners rather than singing for the purpose of awards. He said this during an interview with Romeo Debrah (Boyfriend Romeo) on E-zone, an entertainment talk show on Shaft FM, Obuasi.
“Make good music which will have good impact on people. Whether you win an award or not, people will still appreciate your good work”, he said.
“Don’t be thinking of that carved wood or plastic that would be given to you at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.”, he added.
He also lamented the talents that the VGMA is killing;
“That award is killing many talents. When young musicians enter the scene, they set their sights on the award and if they don’t win, they become frustrated.”
The evergreen hiplife artiste continued by saying that winning an award for your music can motivate you but no one will be judged by God on the basis of his awards.
“The award is not the key to heaven. God has given us a talent and will judge us by the good impact we make with it”.
He also threw his support behind Shatta Wale and lambasted Charter House for making themselves judges on earth.
“I disagree with them for ignoring Shatta Wale. His music was better than most Musicians in Ghana under the year in review. The fact that he submitted his tracks for nomination was a clear indication that he had repented of his actions against the House”, he said.
“He is a Ghanaian and he is a musician, so he deserved another chance. If God is to judge us by every mistake we commit, no one human would stand a chance of surviving”, he added.
