Ghanaian gospel singer, MOGMusic has disclosed that he was disqualified by Grammy following his submission of consideration.
Speaking on HitzFM, MOGMusic stated emphatically that he was ejected by the Grammy board for using its logo on his promotional flyer.
The multi-award winning artist claims the error occurred when the team placed the official Grammy emblem on the promotional flyer for his album “Koinonia Phase II.”
He then took responsibility for the oversight and clarified that the inclusion of the Grammy logo was unintentional.
In addition, MOGmusic encouraged fellow Ghanaians to support their artists and refrain from mocking those who did not secure nominations.
“My social media handler made a mistake and put the official logo of the Grammys, and it got posted. Some Ghanaians drew my attention to it, and we quickly took it down, but it was too late. That is what went wrong on my side, it’s a mistake that my team made, and I take the bullet for myself,” MOGmusic stated.
MOGmusic initially shared the exciting news that his album was nominated for a Grammy Award in categories such as Best Gospel Album, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist, but he was disappointed when the final nominations were revealed.
Not only him, but other musicians felt the same way but have yet to speak out for their disqualifications during the submission process.
Meanwhile, MOGMusic is best known for his 2016 debut album release dubbed “New Wine” which received nominations at the African Gospel Music Awards on the “Album of the Year” and “Discovery of the Year” respectively.
He won his first award in 2020 after being nominated as the ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
He has featured both Gospel and secular musicians with the likes of Ohemaa Mercy, Denzel Prempeh Joe Mettle and Sarkodie.
