A video popped up on social media, by which Grammy nominated musician, named Rocky Dawuni, saying, being a featured artist on an Album does not qualifies you a Grammy nominee.
He said this after reports of Stonebwoy’s nomination at the Grammys. Which he appears on 3 different albums, which he was featured on got nominations at the Grammys.
Speaking on this, Dawuni said:
“There is a lot of confusion as you would understand, Grammy nomination is for a body of work, so there is a difference between a nominee for a Grammy and also featuring to be part of a song of a Grammy nominated album. You have contributed to the song, but you are not a nominee. The thing is, I am not the one saying it, you should go to the Academy website and see who are the nominees”, he said.
He continued saying:
“I think that sometimes…been featured on a record is a great achievement, it’s really great… but we have to also recognise what is… we can’t create our own rules here and be using those rules.”
Stonebwoy after seeing these comments coming from the Raggae musician. Took to Snapchat and took an indirect swipe at him.
In his post, he wrote: “Chairman is so quick to remove credit on a young kid. We know them o.. but we think say dem change o chai dem never change”
