Back in 2015, Ghanaian singer, Stonebwoy won the prestigious Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards, an award that set his career on the map especially as he beat stars like Sarkodie, AKA among others to the much revered award. Unfortunately, the same could not be said about the year 2016 as the singer missed the nomination list to the shock of his fans.
Well it’s 2017 and the award organizers have begun the selection process for nomination and Stonebwoy clearly feels like letting his fans know that he should make this year’s nomination list. He shared on Facebook:
“@Stonebwoyb deserves a 2nd @BET @BET_Intl Nomination & Win!!! He has done a lot in 2016 CONTINENTALLY and GLOBALLY than any other Ghanaian Musician and he’s still breaking NEW GROUNDS with MAJOR CONNECTS. Running his own Global Territorial Tours (#GoHigherTour) in #USA and #Australia is NO JOKE!!! He played the most African shows in 2017 than any other. This 2017 alone he has worked his way on 3 major international albums “Transition” by @iamjemere Morgan and “Break The World” by @FayAnnLyons that shot to N.o 2 and N.o 3 positions respectively in the World @Billboard Charts for weeks. And next week, he is listed for @MorganHeritage’s new album #Avrakedabra which drops May 19 (Grammy Award Group’s album). And as I am typing this now, he is recording with #GRAMMY WINNING PRODUCER @TonyCDKelly. Brother deserves a nomination and a win into #BET2017 (again). Placing all the FACTS, TRUTHS here. The records are there to show!!! Bhimnation” #ComeFromFar #Wogbejeke #StonebwoyForBET2017 #BET #Billboard#Ghana #BhimNation
By all indications, his plan backfired as his fans have been expressing their disappointment at the singer’s post, many of the opinion that he was way above begging to be nominated for any award.
