Grammys: Rocky Dawuni should be the benchmark for Ghanaian artistes – Epixode


Reigning Reggae/Dancehall artiste of the Year, Epixode has urge his fellow musicians to follow the blueprints of Rocky Dawuni if Ghana is to earn more nominations at the Grammy level.

Rocky Dawuni recently bagged his second Grammy nomination having been the first Ghanaian to be nominated for the most prestigious music awards in the world back in 2015.

According to Epixode, getting nominated or winning a Grammy award requires massive professional touch to your music works which should normally involve writers, instrumentalists, curators, other top musicians, among others.

“I think one of the main reasons why Dawuni got considered is because of his unique touch and sound which is the infusion of the Ghanaian-African sound, something he calls the ‘Afro-roots’ which is quite unique.

“Rocky should be like a blueprint to every artiste right now and it should even tell us that you don’t really need to be an ‘A’ list artiste in Ghana to earn a nomination or possibly win a Grammy,” he told GNA Entertainment.

He added that Ghanaian artistes and all music lovers should rally behind Rocky Dawuni exploits on the global stage to help amplify the rich sound of Ghana on the international stage.

This he said would enable international music platforms to give more attention to Ghanaian artiste.

“We need to have a united front and push this agenda for Rocky Dawuni to win a Grammy award. If he does win, it would be a win for Ghana and definitely go into the annals of Ghanaian music as one of the biggest things to happen to our music.

He, however, encouraged Rocky Dawuni to host seminars for artistes to enable them to get enlightened as to what it takes to reach that Grammy level with regard to the right sound, right mixing, mastering and right marketing strategies.

He also congratulated Stonebwoy for receiving three Grammy credits having featured on “Pamoja” by Etana, “Live N Livin” by Sean Paul, and “Royal” by Jesse Royal.
