Rashid Mugeez, a member of Hiplife group, R2Bees is rooting for Stonebwoy as the Artiste of the Year at this year Vodafone Ghana Music Awards scheduled for April 11.
Mugeez told Showbiz in an interview on Saturday in that Stonebwoy deserves the Artiste of the Year because he worked hard last year.
“Most of the artistes nominated in that category did well last year but Stonebwoy is the best in my opinion. He released a lot of hit songs and performed on almost all the major platforms. He has come far and no artiste deserves the Artiste of the Year better than Stonebowy” he said.
To Mugeez, Stonebwoy is one artiste who does not joke with his work and it is not surprising he was nominated as one of the artiste in contention for Artiste of the year.
Although R2Bees had three nominations-Highlife Song of the Year, Afro- Pop Song and Best Group of the Year, Mugeez admitted that the group was not very active last year.
“I honestly believe R2Bees was not on top last year because we were not on major platforms and we did not release many songs. It is not every year that an artiste reign but we promise to give our fans more music next year” he said.
According to Mugeez, R2Bees always want to have something for their fans all the time that is why they released three singles last year.
“Although we were not very active last year, we still released three singles for our fans. And the three nominations this year testify that the group is still loved by Ghanaians who have enjoyed our songs all these many years” he said.
Mugeez said whether they win an award or not, they are still committed to give Ghanaians the best from them.
