Artiste manager, Nana Poku Ashis, has commended rapper Amerado for taking a stand and advocating for himself in the recent Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) nominee list controversy.

In a live discussion on Hitz FM, Ashis emphasized the need for Ghanaian creatives, especially musicians, to speak up against injustices and not remain silent when faced with challenges in the industry. He praised Amerado for successfully petitioning to have his song “Kwaku Ananse” recognized in multiple categories at the TGMA.

“A lot of musicians are very timid. They know what’s right, or they have the facts to back their case. But most of them just stay behind. You need to make a case for yourself at all times,” Ashis stated.

He called on artists to follow Amerado’s example and be proactive in addressing issues affecting them. Ashis highlighted the importance of making their voices heard and not allowing errors to go uncorrected due to silence.

The TGMA board recently made updates to the nomination list following petitions from several artists, including Amerado. As a result, “Kwaku Ananse” will now compete in the Best Highlife Song and Most Popular Song of the Year categories, with the original version replacing the remix.

The joint project “Lonely Road” by O’Kenneth & Xlim Kid also received proper recognition after the review.
