Nigerian Musician, Abolore Adigun, popularly known as 9ice, has made it known that contrary to popular opinion, he never promised his fans to win a Grammy award for them.
Recall that the music star made mention of bringing Grammy to his fans in his “Street Credibility” song he dropped years ago.
This statement has brought about so many backlash after years of him saying it without getting the award, not even a nomination.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said, “People are getting it wrong. I didn’t promise anyone a Grammy award; I promised myself. I promised myself a lot of things. I promised myself a Music of Black Origin award and I got it. I promised myself to be one of the most reckoned with artistes and I’ve achieved that.
The Grammy award has been one of my targets as well. There is a Yoruba adage that says, ‘Ba o ku, ise o tan’ which literally means, ‘If there is life, anything can still happen’. I’m still doing music and who says I cannot get it (Grammy award) tomorrow? I still have that belief and I know God will do it for me.”
