Ghanaian gospel singer MOG Music has shed light on why he failed to secure a nomination for the 2024 Grammy Awards despite submitting his work for consideration.
In an interview with Accra-based Hitz FM, the acclaimed gospel singer acknowledged making a mistake in his promotional efforts that ultimately led to his disqualification.
MOG Music had submitted his album for consideration in the Gospel Album of the Year category.
"The main reason why I started making noise about my consideration was because I felt it was a big deal," he said.
"When Ghanaians start making noise online, there are other Grammy Academy members who may see it and add me to their consideration,” alluded MoG Music.
However, the artist explained that a promotional flyer created by his social media team incorrectly featured the official Grammy logo which goes against the rules.
"My social media handler made a mistake and put the official logo of the Grammys, and it got posted," MOG Music stated.
"Some Ghanaians drew my attention to it, and we quickly took it down, but it was too late. That is what went wrong on my side, it’s a mistake that my team made, and I take the bullet for myself,” he revealed.
Despite the setback, MOG Music urged Ghanaians to be more supportive of their artists working to achieve international recognition and stop trolling them.
"I think we need to be very supportive. Rather than laughing at Stonebwoy and co., we should be more united so these people will realize there is a group supporting Ghanaians,” he said.
Despite heightened anticipation, Ghana once again missed out on the 2024 Grammy nominations that were announced on Friday, November 10.
From the African continent, Nigerians dominated with five artists getting nominated followed by two South African singers.
