He said his nomination for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year category has given him a boost to his music career.
He has said the nomination was a heartfelt one since it has elevated him from regional superstar to nationwide recognized artiste. The ‘Dagomba Girl’ hitmaker says it’s a sign he’s making progress in his music career.
Last year, Macassio won the “Best New Act of The Year” at the 3 Music Awards. As the leader of the 69 Fans Army, he believes his fans are rallying behind him and would do everything possible to make sure he wins the category he has been nominated for at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
What he is really not sure of is if he would be considered by the board of directors and academy since as compared to the other artistes nominated in the same category, he’s not really popular.
Macassio, in an interview with Johnnie Hughes last Friday has declared how big he thinks he has now become in Ghana.
Maccasio’s ‘Dagomba Girl’ will go head-to-head against Stonebwoy’s ‘Top Skanka’, Samini’s ‘Obaa’ and Shatta Wale’s ‘Gringo’ at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards to compete for the Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year.
Macassio, the Tamale-based artiste has hope that one day he will become one of the biggest artiste in the whole of Africa.
Recently he signed a nationwide ambassadorial deal with Giant Malt, a deal he believes has given credibility to his works.
