Dear @ghanadjawards ✊
After more than 5 years as a Hypeman and MC in the entertainment industry from Ashaiman to Kumasi and back to Accracountry, first time nominated for MC/Hype-man of year for this year Ghana DJ awards 2020.
On one end of the spectrum, though awards are to reward, my biggest award is seeing people always jamming anytime I’m on the mic trust wogyiii God is Good.
I’m Grateful for the nomination but more excited to see other MCs also recognised as well. This year’s nomination has a lot of MCs on there which makes the category competitive. Hypemen and club MCs have played a vital role in the music and entertainment industry being the life of the party. Hype-Men /MCs are equally important as DJs and Artists in this modern era because Hype-men/MCs collaborate with artist to do music, Mixtape with DJs, influencers, Event Promoters, OAP, fashion Models, Brand Ambassadors, Curators and Trend Setters etc.
Some of the World Best Hype-men like Flavor Flav, Fatman Scoop, Lil Jon,DJ Khaled,Mercury Quaye, Joel Orleans and many others have inspired a lot of young MCs to believe in their craftsmanship and is a good course to advocate for hype-men and MCs.
The whole Industry has to support and put value on Hype-men and MCs to also make a living from their career. I want to congratulate my follow nominees in the category and also the Ghana DJ Awards academy empowering the culture. Thanks for everyone who supported me from Day 1 till now especially my Boss @kegoka 😇
Respect the hype-man.
