Rocky believes that Ghanaian artistes have the potential to be nominated for Grammy Awards, despite what people may think.
In an interview with Berla Mundi at the African Grammy Nominee Brunch, he stated that all the artistes in Ghana have the potential to be nominated for the prestigious award. He even named some of the big names in Ghana’s music industry who could be nominated for the award.
Rocky then concluded that it is time for Ghanaian music to be taken seriously and be poised for greatness. Despite the disappointment of not winning the Grammy Award in his category, Rocky Dawuni still has a victory mindset and believes his nominations are paving the way for a bigger victory for Ghana. His two previous attempts at a Grammy win in 2015 and 2021 have only served to increase expectations for a Ghanaian artist to secure the first Grammy laurel.
His nomination is a testament to the progress Ghanaian music has made in the international music scene and is a source of pride for all Ghanaians. Rocky Dawuni’s nomination is a sign of hope that one day a Ghanaian artist will achieve the ultimate victory and bring home the first Grammy Award.
