Tulenkey, a rapper from Ghana, has strongly criticized the organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for not including him in the ‘Best Rap Performance’ category.
The 24th edition nomination list of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was announced on social media by the organizers. A tweet sighted by kofiannangh.net revealed that Tulenkey was disappointed not to be nominated in the ‘Best Rap Performance’ category.
Chief Osei Bonsu, the rapper known as Tulenkey, has accused the organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards of being biased.
He claims to have created numerous exceptional rap songs over the past four years, but despite his efforts, he never makes it onto the nominee list for that specific category when it is announced for the year in question.
Tulenkey stated that over the past four years, he has produced outstanding rap tracks such as “Point of View,” “Undertaker,” “Child Abuse,” and “Forever 96.” Despite his exceptional work, he has not received the recognition he deserves.
He further added that the repeated exclusion from the category by the organizers only confirms that certain aspects of the music industry, such as acknowledging those who truly deserve recognition, are often undervalued.
I’ve been dropping the hardest rap joints ever since I touched down. Last year was Point Of View, the year before was Undertaker, before that Child Abuse, Forever ‘96 and not even a single nomination for Best Rap Performance? I guess somethings are never appreciated.
