Amerado has minimized the significance of the Grammy Awards by adamantly arguing that the famous award program shouldn’t be used as a yardstick to assess an artist’s excellence.
When speaking on the Nitro Avenue show with Candymann on Cape Coast’s Asaase Radio.Amerado claimed that it is inappropriate to believe that those who have never won an award have no relevance.
He maintains that recognition from award recipients for one’s hard work in the field is a bonus rather than a standard by which to elevate particular artists over others.
“Grammy is not a standard for greatness; I don’t believe that. We don’t have to accept the notion that, a musician must win a Grammy before he or she is respected. If an artiste is able to grow from steps one to two, that’s enough. If the Grammy comes, fine; that’s a bonus.” he concluded.
