Ghanaian Hip-hop musician Medikal has called on Ghanaians especially music enthusiasts to throw their weight behind Tema-based BET-nominated rapper, Kwesi Arthur, to win his first award on the International scene.
Kwesi Arthur has been nominated at the Black Entertainment Television Awards in the same category with Nigerian singer Niniola and Southern African artiste Sjava for the Viewers’ Choice: Best New International Act award, however, it will take endorsements from the general public to earn him the prize at stake.
With 100 per cent votes by fans being the sole factor of the category, Medikal, who has featured on a Kwesi Arthur track says all well-meaning Ghanaians should support the “Anthem” hitmaker to beat the competition from his rivals.
Commenting on Arthur’s nomination in an exclusive chat with GhanaWeb, Medikal said “seeing a colleague and a friend who does the same kind of music that I do, which is Hip-hop, a win for him means a win for me because it opens loads of ways for me, other Hip-Hop artistes and other people trying to do music”.
“If you dey watch Medikal right now for here, go vote for Kwesi Arthur let him win this thing and then we all win,” he urged.
He was speaking at the Ghana Meets Naija pre-party held at the SOHO Nightclub at Marina Mall, Airporton Friday, March 8.
