2020 VGMA: Rex Omar disappointed over King Promise, Eno Barony snub
Veteran musician Rex Omar has expressed his disappointment over some results at the just-ended 2020 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
According to him, singer King Promise and rapper Eno Barony’s exploits in the year under review tops all in the categories they were nominated for.
The highlife legend was, however, surprised that both artistes did not win any award at the ceremony which was staged over the weekend.
King Promise had three nominations on the night; Highlife Artiste of the Year, Afrobeats song of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year – while Eno Barony was nominated for the Hip-Pop Song of the Year and Best Rapper of the Year.
“I am very disappointed that King Promise did not win his nominations on Saturday because the young man is doing very, very well. Even his vocals and performance on the night was a testament to how good he is,” he stated.
Speaking on Accra-based Hitz FM on Monday, he said, “Eno to me right now she is on top of her game when it comes to rap.”
The Abiba hitmaker said not winning should not discourage King Promise but rather encourage him to show the world more of his talent and at the right time, he will be recognised.
“Let this urge you on because one award will not determine you, keep on doing you and I think that you have it,” he said.
