Rocky Dawuni Reveals Why Stonebwoy Can’t Be Tagged A Grammy Nominee


Internationally celebrated Ghanaian Reggae musician, Rocky Dawuni has thrown light on what makes an artist a Grammy nominee.

Owing to speculations that Dancehall and Reggae singer, Stonebwoy, is a Grammy after songs he featured on got nominated in the 64th Grammy awards, Rocky Dawuni, indicated that being featured on an album that has a nomination at the Grammys does not make you a nominee and it is because there are rules governing who is or should be a nominee.

Speaking in an interview Citi TV monitored by, Rocky acknowledged the value a nomination adds to the craft of any musician, but it should not be taken likely.

There is a lot of confusion, as you would understand, Grammy nomination is for a body of work, so there is a difference between a nominee for a Grammy and also featuring to be part of a song of a Grammy-nominated album.

You have contributed to the song, but you are not a nominee. The thing is, I am not the one saying it; you should go to the Academy website and see who are the nominees,” he said

Rocky Dawuni went on to add that “I think that sometimes…been featured on a record is a great achievement, it’s really great… but we have to also recognise what is… we can’t create our own rules here and be using those rules.”

“I see some of our media houses too not doing their due diligence because if you are a reputable media house, and you are also taking information that is not really the right information, then it diminishes.

Because the value of the Grammy… we have to keep the value of the Grammy so that people strive for it.

“It’s not something that I wanna do like I am a nominee or something like that,” Rocky Dawuni concluded.
