The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has congratulated international Ghanaian musician Rocky Dawuni on his nomination for the Grammys in the reggae category.
This historic feat as the first Ghanaian to receive a Grammy nomination deserves tons of commendation and we join you in this your joyous moment as you celebrate your nomination.
Many of us are not surprised at this feat as we have closely monitored your work on the international circuit. Your dedication to the cause of Ghanaian music cannot be overemphasized as you cut your busy schedule to join us for the international launch of the Ghana Music Week 2016 in both Washington DC and New York.
As the MUSIGA Global Ambassador your accomplishment instills a certain sense of pride in us and we applaud your achievement unreservedly. Apart from your feats on the musical front, your humanitarian work also deserves celebration.
As we prepare for the Grammys in February next year, we urge all Ghanaians to support Rocky with prayers so that as the Grammy Academy goes through their work, the unique qualities of your album “Branches of the Same Tree” shines forth and you bring the award home to Ghana.
We will also join your homecoming concert at Alliance Francaise on Friday December 18 to celebrate this historic feat.
The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has also commended Reggie Zippy and Bollie who make up Menn on Point for making it to the finals of this year’s X Factor reality show in the U.K. Your feat has proven beyond all doubt that Ghana music is on the resurgence and with determination, hard work and support our music can go far.
From the beginning of the reality show, your enthusiasm, artistry and dedication to your art have stood you in good stead as you kept securing commendations from the judges and rave reviews from the media and other entertainment pundits.
On behalf of the Musicians Union of Ghana and the entire music industry in Ghana we say “ayekoo” and urge you to keep the flag high as you make mother Ghana proud of you.
