Awards do not validate my success - King Promise
  • Awards do not validate my success – King Promise 
  • Ghanaian artiste, Gregory Bortey Newman, popularly called King Promise, believes he is doing well in his field of music, so he doesn’t strictly need an award to feel that.
  • This comes after many have expressed their views on the musicians failure to clinch awards at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and that of last year.

After repeated comments regarding his inability to win at the VGMAs, Ghanaian Afrobeat singer King Promise has now spoken that awards do not validate his success.

He also spoke out about the Ghanaian award schemes and why he has not been able to win on most award ceremonies.

On why awards do not validate his success, the “Chop Life” singer  explained that he does not measure success by plaudits or prizes, but rather by whether or not his music achieves its intended goal of reaching out to people and having the desired impact.

He noted, however, that winning accolades makes an artist happy and fulfilled, and that being nominated for artiste of the year at the VGMAs every year means he is doing well with his trade, which he considers a major victory.

In an interview with Berla Mundi on TV3, the musician noted that while he has received nominations and won awards from several award systems outside of Ghana, he has yet to do so in his own country.

King Promise also admitted that his inability to create positive relationships with some industry individuals and platforms in Ghana may have contributed to his loss at the VGMA and other Ghanaian award shows.
