Grammys will lose its value if brought to Africa, says King Paluta

He believes that the Grammys should be maintained as it is for artistes in Africa to fly out of their continent to receive the awards

Musician, King Paluta is of the view that bringing Grammys to Africa will make the award scheme lose its value.

He believes that they should maintain it as it is for African artists to fly out of their continent to receive the awards.

Speaking on Accra-based United Television on Saturday (15 June), King Paluta believes that if the event is organised in Africa, the big music executives may not be in attendance and that will not augur well for artists who are looking to catch the attention of big labels.

“They should keep the awards where it is because anything that the white man decides to bring to Africa loses its value. We want to fly out of our country to go and receive the awards. That is prestige and that is what we want.”

Also, the big music executives will not be attending these award events if they are held in Africa so how do we benefit? I want to win the GRAMMY and catch the eyes of big music executives like Sony Music and if Grammys is now in Africa, then how do I achieve that?”

Meanwhile, the Grammys has announced that it is expanding its frontiers to Africa.

Ghana has been excluded from the spotlight of this historic event after failing to fulfil the requirements to join the ranks of founding countries—Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda and South Africa—in hosting the awards.
