This is unprecedented. First time for Ghana in the Grammys!
Ghanaian international celebrated reggae artiste Rocky Dawuni has been nominated in the ‘Best Reggae Album’ category at the 2016 Grammy Awards for his album ‘Branches of the Same Tree’.
Becoming the first Ghanaian to be nominated in the Grammy Awards, Rocky will be competing for the awards against Morgan Heritage, Jah Cure, Barrington Levy and Luciano.
“I didn’t get there just by myself I was inspired by a lot of Ghanaian musicians whose work became an embodiment of who I am now. This award is to honour all the work that they have done and continue to do. It’s a good day for Ghana and Ghanaian music. I never made records for awards…but then again I knew that at some point people who discern and value good work are going to recognize you,” Rocky told Starr Drive’s Bola Ray and Anita Erskine.
The Grammys takes place on Sunday, February 15, 2015 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, United States of America.
