3-time Grammy Award nominee, Rocky Dawuni in a recent interview has questioned various event organizers on reasons why he isn’t frequently booked.
Even though he has had three Grammy nominations and has resided in Ghana for the past four years, the Ghanaian international reggae musician believes he still doesn’t understand why promoters don’t book him.
Rocky Dawuni stated to Nhyira FM in Kumasi that he believes the event organizers are unwilling to pay him because they lack the fund.
“It has nothing to do with money,” Rocky Dawuni said. “Someone asked the same question, and I told them I have no control over whether or not the event organizer will book me.”
He claims that because he has no influence over the event organizers’ actions, he can do nothing to encourage them to hire him to perform.
“I don’t have any power over that. But we should ask any event planner why Rocky Dawuni isn’t booked for events even though he’s been nominated for Grammys three times. “, he asked.
