Legacy Life Entertainment signee, King Promise has hinted at possible sabotage of his music career.
The “Ginger” hitmaker has had a short yet successful music career, spanning five years.
Although King Promise has delivered hits after hits and won some big international awards including the “Headies” in Nigeria, some music award shows, including the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards have shied away from giving him the recognition that he deserves.
Speaking in a recent interview with Ameyaw TV, the “5 Star General” stated that he believes the reason why he is left out on a lot of things in the industry is that he chooses to stay to himself.
According to him, due to the controversial nature of the industry he finds himself in, he tries his possible best to stay to himself and not mingle with people in the industry.
However, his decision to do may have had an effect on his career and possibly delayed his recognition from the industry players.
When asked if at any point anyone in the industry has tried to sabotage his career, he said; “What do you think?” and continued to explain why he feels this way.
“A lot of people say the industry doesn’t like me because I’m not close to a lot of people or they don’t find me when they’re looking for me. But me too, I’ve always been the type even before the music, to let my music and other stuff speak for me. I’m not trying to be in the news for controversy. But I guess it’s the industry we find ourselves in, they go hand and hand,” he explained.
Although King Promise has received one VGMA since his breakthrough in the industry, his nominations all through the years do not tally with the number of awards won.
In 2018, he was nominated but went home with zero awards. In 2019 he picked up the Songwriter of the Year with his song “CCTV”. In 2020, he picked up 3 nominations with zero wins.
Again in the year 2021, he picked up multiple nominations with zero wins, and finally in the just-ended 23rd edition, King Promise received four nominations, including a nomination in the Artiste of the Year category but he went home with zero wins.
Earlier this year, King Promise was also in the news following a miscommunication between his management and Sadiq Abdulai Abu, C.E.O of 3Music Network.
Even though there were reports of his music being banned on the company’s platforms, the P.R.O of 3 Music Awards, Vida Adutwumwaa Boateng stressed that the fortunes of King Promise will not be affected by his personal vendetta with Sadiq Abdulai Abu.
King Promise is celebrating his fifth year in the music business this year. Since he dropped his first official single “Oh Yeah” in 2017, the KP has been unstoppable and has gone on to release hits after hits.
King Promise is currently promoting his new single, “Ginger” off his soon to be released “5 Star” album.
