Nigerian afro-beats artiste, Mr Eazi stated that he rather lose at the Grammy Awards than cry over VGMA. Furthermore, this is because organisers of the event, Charter House are jokers.
Moreover, according to the singer, the scheme is not a well-recognised one. Therefore, he doesn’t have to worry himself over why he won no award at the 2017 edition.
Mr Eazi’s comments about Charter House and VGMA’s
“Charterhouse is full of jokers, how can you conclude that I am not a big artiste when I organized the biggest event (Life is Eazi Detty Rave concert) same year you nominated me for ‘Best African Artiste of the Year‘ category at the VGMA?
If eno sey ebi Grammy wey dem nominate me wey afi say ooh I go fi win this Grammy then if I lose, it’s two things, I will say aah I’m supposed to win this award but I will be a happy boy because I got nominated for the Grammy’s and that’s the Grammy but if it’s some other awards.”
He made these comments on Delay’s show.
Moreover, the host asked why he didn’t perform at the 2017 edition of the VGMAs. He said he was not surprised he lost the ‘Best African Artiste of the Year‘ award to RunTown. This is because Charterhouse wanted him to perform for free.
“They called my manager for me to perform at last year’s VGMAs and I told them I was on tour in the USA and if they can book flight for me to come since they were not going to give me a dime but they couldn’t oblige to that and I had stay off because I had a show that was going to pay me good money.”
Moreover, he buttresses his claim that Charter House are jokers. He stated that he organised a successful show in Ghana which recorded huge numbers. Therefore, for Charterhouse to assume that he is not a ‘big cat’ is unfathomable.
He said at this moment of his life, his only focus is to make his fans happy and make a lot of money.
