Ghana Music Awards: ‘I am not Interested in Being the Best Rapper’, Strongman Discloses

Strongman who was formerly signed to the Sarkcess Music label, said he holds the record as the only rapper in Ghana to have been nominated in the Best Rapper category four times in a row, despite his inability to win an accolade to cement the feat.

Ghanaian rapper, Vincent Kwaku Osei, also known as Strongman has said he is no more focused on winning the Best Rapper award at theTelecel Ghana Music Awards(TGMAs).

Speaking in an interview with Tony Best on Akoma FM on Friday, Strongman said he has other pertinent issues besides focusing on awards which he may never win.

“For the past four years, I have never posted my nomination on any social media platform to urge my fans to vote for me because of previous experiences. I am focusing on other things to make me happy,” Strongman stated.

Strongman who was formerly signed to the Sarkcess Music label, said he holds the record as the only rapper in Ghana to have been nominated in the Best Rapper category four times in a row, despite his inability to win an accolade to cement the feat.

Strongman’s award drought has sparked debates among rap fans and social media commentators who have expressed their disappointment at his failure to win awards at previous editions of the Ghana Music Awards.

Strongman was first recognised after winning the maiden edition of the Next Big Thing in GH Rap, on GhOneTv, during his University days. His ability to rap in his native tongue(twi) and lyrical prowess made his style distinct from others. He later got signed to the  Sarkcess Music label in 2017. He later parted ways with the label in 2019 to work as an independent artiste.
