It‘s been 8 years in the Ghana music industry for popular rap artist, Guru, but all he has to show for, is a single personal honour at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, ‘Hiplife Song of the Year’ won in 2014 for the song, Boys Abr3’ – www.entertainmentgh.com can state!
Obviously, for an artist who is acclaimed to be one of the best, he wants more and when that ‘more’ doesn’t come, frustration sets in.
According to nydjlive.com, Guru, has withdrawn from the 18th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, just hours after the official unveiling of the nominees was done.
The website claims that, the artist says he is no more interested and failed to give further reasons.
After Guru’s announcement, it took just a couple of hours for reactions to pour in, and one caught the attention of www.entertainmentgh.com – a post from Bullet, one-half of the group, Ruff N’ Smooth.
“U stole ur fellow artist song,go perform am take big money for ur pocket while u took food out of the mouth of an artist u and am dey the same industry.U no even care cos in ur mind stealing is right.now u dey blame some award organisers say dem dey steal u so u pull out?like seriously?#lordhavemercy#Godsendyourfire”
Bullet was referring to an infamous incident in Gabon, where the group accused Guru of inking a deal behind their back and performing their song at a concert in that country without their consent.
Clearly, for Bullet, this is some form of karma for Guru and he is basking in that glory of seeing his ‘foe’ go through the frustration of pulling out of the awards scheme.
