I Got Snubbed At The VGMA’s In 2015 Despite My Chart-topping Anthem, ‘Enemies’ – Jupitar



Iconic Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall musician, Jupitar, has revealed that he failed to push his brand locally  because his biggest song, ‘Enemies’ wasn’t nominated for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) back in 2015 though he filed for it.

In a recent interview on TV3’s New Day television show, the super talented musician, who is originally identified as Michael Okine shared his experiences in the music industry and the challenging moment that left an indelible mark on his career..

Because ‘Enemies’ was the biggest song in that era,” he averred.

According to the dancehall musician, the omission of his song came as a big surprise, especially looking at the immense popularity the song had gained during the period he released it.

Jupitar further noted that the situation pushed him to reflect on the dynamics of gaining recognition within the space in which he finds himself.

Reflecting on the importance of awards and accolades like the VGMA, Jupitar expressed a specific sentiment shared by numerous artists, which is the desire for a fair and comprehensive recognition of their contributions.

He went on to say that he is not just saying that to undermine them because hopefully they all need VGMA to survive as Ghanaian musicians.

However, somehow it felt like some of them, also Ghanaians and he as a music maker equally deserves every push other musicians are getting in the country.
