Radio personality and Reggae Musician, Blakk Rasta born Abubakar Ahmed believes that celebrating gospel musician, Pastor Nana Yaw Boakye, also known as MOGmusic, admission into the GRAMMY Academy is mediocre.
This comes after the gospel artiste was admitted into the Grammy academy, making him the first Ghanaian gospel musician to gain such level. His admission into the academy was approved by the Grammy Board.
“This is a dream come true,” said MOGmusic, reacting to the news. “This is the pinnacle every musician wishes to get to. I am glad to be putting Ghana on the map once again” he added
He further noted that his admission into the academy is motivation for him to do more as a gospel musician.
But reacting to the news on UTV, Blakk Rasta believes that it’s time Ghanaians leave celebrating mediocrity.
To him, it is no achievement and should not be given the coverage it was given.
“In Ghana, we celebrate a lot of mediocrity and it hurts me very much. You joined the academy so what? What is the achievement? The Academy is even encouraging Jamaicans to join so it is no achievement that you now have voting rights. It could be an achievement in some sense but listen, your artiste are in Portugal Afronation and are miming.
“I know MOG and he wrote melodies for me on one of my songs so we called him melodies master so this is not personal. When I saw what they were celebrating I asked myself what is this?”
MOGmusic has songs like Be Lifted, Elohim, Living God, and many more to his credit.
In addition to being a singer and songwriter for the gospel music industry, he is also a pastor at the Royalhouse Chapel International and has won best male vocalist of the year at the VGMA twice in a row.
