Ghana Music Awards Holds More Value Than Grammys, BET – Fameye Says


Singer and songwriter Fameye has made a bold statement, asserting that a Ghana Music Awards trophy holds more value to him than a Grammy or BET awards.

In an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra 100.5 FM’s midmorning show, Ayekoo Ayekoo, on Wednesday, Fameye, also known as Peter, reflected on his journey from being relatively unknown to receiving acclaim.

Fameye shared that there was a time when he esteemed Grammy and BET awards above all else, as reflected in his song “Destiny.”

He, however, revealed that his perspective has shifted, adding that he now considers a Ghana Music Awards trophy more significant.

Recalling the inspiration he drew from witnessing Highlife and Hiplife legends like Kwaadee, Ofori Amponsah, and Kwaw Kese receive Ghana Music Awards, Fameye expressed gratitude for the support he has received from his home country.

He stressed that the foundation of massive support from Ghana has played a crucial role in shaping his success.

According to Fameye, having prestigious national awards like the Ghana Music Awards creates a positive impression when officials from organizations like the Recording Academy (Grammys) visit Ghana and witness artists like “Peter, Kwesi Arthur,” and others with local accolades and widespread love.

The song-writer clarified that he is not opposed to winning a Grammy or BET awards, stressing that, he values the Ghana Music Awards even more.

He suggested that continuous recognition at the local level would delight his fans and ultimately contribute to their pride and support.

Fameye acknowledged that winning awards, be it Grammy or Ghana Music Awards, strengthens the connection between artists and their fans, instilling a sense of pride and honor.
