The “Penalty” Crooner, in a chat with showtime talked about his 2016 hit ‘penalty’ which earned him a seat in Nigerian music industry, and how he couldn’t secure a nomination at the just concluded Prestigious All Africa Music Awards, AFRIMA.
The self styled ‘king of the streets’ said;
“To be nominated and to be appreciated are two different things; for my picture to be on the banners and to have been invited for the awards is enough, because I appreciate every bit of my life. A fall never keeps me down, though this is not a fall; anything goes, nominated or not nominated I’m balling”.
Going further, he averred that the least he could do is to up his ante in readiness for future awards because he can’t commit suicide because he wasn’t nominated for the AFRIMA awards.
“Don’t get it twisted, I don’t mean that being nominated and winning awards doesn’t translate to an achievement; but I won’t kill myself because they refused to nominate me. I just have to work harder while keeping my eye on the prize. There are songs that don’t get nominations but they shut down the show when they are performed at awards; and you will be wondering if the organisers were blind during nominations. Well, I can’t judge them and they can’t judge me as well”, he mused.
