UK-based Ghanaian artiste Fuse ODG has described his win at the just ended Grammys as an “amazing honour.”
The artiste is the co-writer of British award-winning singer Ed Sheeran’s ‘Bibia Be Ye Ye’ song produced by Killbeatz.
The song, a part of Ed Sheeran’s album ‘Divide’ won the ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ award the 60th edition of the Grammys held in New York last Sunday.
In an interview with Doreen Avio, the ‘Azonto’ hitmaker expressed excitement over the Award expressing gratitude the Brit singer for travelling to Ghana to work with them.
“It’s an amazing honour. Big shout outs to Ed Sheeran, for coming to Ghana and working with us in Ghana, and taking the music that we’ve made to the world.”
The artiste, who doubles as a Tourism Ambassador for Ghana, is positive that this win will bring opportunities to other Ghanaian artistes, and the industry as a whole.
“I am looking forward to the future, more opportunities. I think this has opened doors. It is very motivational if you’re an artiste.
“If you write music, if you produce music, you have to keep going because definitely more successes will be coming,” he said.
A proud Fuse ODG was optimistic that the win will affect the Ghanaian music industry positively.
He was confident musical content from Ghana was capable of gaining international recognition just as the song ‘Bibia Be Ye Ye’ had done.
Fuse also debunked reports that there is a bad blood between him and producer Killbeatz.
“Killbeatz is my family and I’ll always look out for him,” he said.
He admitted though that every relationship goes through rough times periodically but stressed, “we are still working and still looking out for him.”
