Fast-rising Ghanaian music icon, Gregory Bortey Newman, aka King Promise has expressed disappointment after Ghana failed to receive any nomination at this yearâ€™s BET Awards.
In the past, some Ghanaian artistes like Sarkodie, D Black, Stonebwoy and MzVee have all earned their nominations to the Black Entertainment Television Awards â€œBETâ€ in the Best International Act: African category.
Commenting on the issue the â€œSelfishâ€ hitmaker said he feels disappointed to see no one out there representing Ghana at this yearâ€™s BET Awards.
He was speaking in an interview with Ohemaa Woyeje on Adom FMâ€™s â€œWork and Happinessâ€ on Tuesday.
â€œItâ€™s disappointing. We want people to represent us on the international scene and itâ€™s sad we had no nomination,â€ he told Ohemaa.
â€œWe had lots of hits and it was a very good year so I donâ€™t know why that happened but we just have to work harderâ€, he said.
The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other American minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The awards are presented annually and are broadcast live on BET. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a televised ceremony.
