Musician FUSE ODG is a Ghanaian-English hip hop recording artist who made his name in the London rap scene after growing up in the English capital. Born Nana Richard Abiona, he’s a talented producer and rapper, and has been an active influence in helping young people in his local communities realize their musical aspirations through a mobile studio.
He has expressed appreciation to the organizers of the Black Entertainment for finally valuing African musicians with due respect as they do other artistes from other continents.
Fuse revealed on Zylofon 102.1 FM that he considers Davido accepting his BET award on stage as a sublime gesture by the organizers of the scheme.
“We are finally getting the respect we deserve. I appreciate BET’s for that”, he stated.
According to him, the fight he started long ago of BET refusal to give the award to Africa musicians on the main stage has finally yearn results..
Davido, happens to be the first international act nominee to receive his award live on stage, during the main Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards since the inception of that category in 2010, after several complaints about discrimination from African artistes.
In 2015, the “Million Pound Girl” hitmaker, who was nominated for the same category at the BET’s, ditched the show because he deemed the organizers of the scheme as disrespectful to African acts, however, he has finally laid his mind to rest on the issue.
He further urge BET organizers to respect hardwork of Africa musicians just like the American artists, indicating that,they are no different from us.
