Renowned singer-songwriter, Akwaboah, has insisted that whether or not he receives an award for his hard work cannot and will not take a toll on him or change who he is.
He shared this view during a live studio discussion with DJ Advicer on the Ayekoo After-Dryve show which airs every weekday on Happy98.9FM.
DJ Advicer, in the course of the interview, questioned him about why he receives awards internationally for best highlife artiste but local awards seem to pass him by. Akwaboah replied that he does not know what is going on but whatever it is, only the people behind these award schemes have the answers.
Akwaboah noted that his main aim is to keep focused and work hard to serve his fans with the good music that they want to enjoy from him, hence he is not bothered when he is not nominated for or does not win awards.
He said, “When I organize shows, you know the number of people who come so I can’t be defined by the fact that an award show has been organized and I didn’t win any award. The organizers sat down and decided how they want their event to go so I’m not bothered”.
“If it comes, that’s fine. If it doesn’t, I am still Akwaboah”, the highlife artiste further added.
