Shatta Wale Ignored Again for 2016 BASS Awards

bass-awards-2016

Shatta Wale is the ‘hottest’ dancehall act in the country at the moment, but that ‘hotness’ was still not taken into consideration when organizers compiled the final nomination list for the 2016 edition of the Bass Awards.

The artist and the organizers were unable to fix whatever differences they might have had before the announcement of the list.

However, Samini, Stonebwoy, Rocky Dawuni, Ras Kuuku, and Knit Lante are all in the running for the most coveted prize; The ‘Kwame Nkrumah’ Award.

Others acts such as Fancy Gadam, Ebony, MzVee, AK Songstess, and Epixode also secured nomination in various other categories.

The Bass Awards seeks to reward deserving musicians in the genres of reggae and dancehall and it comes off on 25th December 2016 at the National Theatre.

Samini, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Ras Kuuku, Tsidi Fari, Dr Knii Lante and A.K Songstress have all won Bass Awards in the past.
