"I was expecting a BET Award nomination" - EL

EL has admitted he was looking forward to have been nominated for the 2017 BET Awards.

According to him, he was expecting to part of the Best International Act for Africa but unfortunately he wasn’t aware of the processes involved hence the reason he failed to chip himself into the award slot.




Speaking to KMJ on ‘Daybreak Hitz’ on Hitz FM, the BBNZ live recording artiste said he thought it was all about talent that earns one the nomination; winning the 2016 Artiste of the year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, he thought he had automatically proved beyond doubt for a BET nomination.

“I was expecting something like that but I didn’t know what the process was. I thought it was all about talent. I think there is a personal connection with organizers both here in Ghana and outside.

“It’s something I have learned. If I had known when I had won the Artiste of the year I need to speak to some contacts, I would have considered. I had not come out of my box then…” he explained.

Meanwhile, the ‘Koko’ hit maker disclosed he felt the presence of biasness in the ‘crime’ music industry when his talent couldn’t put him on the BET map but it has never discouraged him since he is never saddened on the outcome of such things.
