The Ghanaian international reggae musician believes he still doesn’t understand why promoters don’t book him despite having received three Grammy nominations and living in Ghana for the past four years.
In Kumasi, Rocky Dawuni told Nhyira FM that he thinks the event organizers are refusing to pay him because they don’t have the money.
Rocky Dawuni remarked, “It has nothing to do with money. I responded that I had no influence over whether or not the event organizer will book me when someone else asked the same question.
He asserts that he can do nothing to urge the event organizers to hire him as a performer because he has no control over their decisions.
“I have no control over that. However, we should question any event coordinator as to why Rocky Dawuni isn’t hired for performances despite having received three Grammy nominations, he said.
Three-time GRAMMY nominee Rocky Dawuni is a singer, songwriter, producer, and activist whose distinctive “Afro Roots” style crosses the barriers between Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States.
Rocky works on cultural diplomacy as a Global Ambassador for the World Day of African and Afrodescendant Culture, a UN Foundation Ambassador for the Clean Cooking Alliance, and a UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa.
He uses his music to bring awareness to important issues affecting people throughout the world through these and other positions, including speaking engagements, panels, youth empowerment, and live performances. Rocky has released 8 solo albums, and his music embodies a powerful and energizing message of world peace and interconnectedness.
