The dust on this year’s Groove Awards Nominations has settled and both nominees and those snubbed have pretty much moved on, after the May 2 nominations.
Willy Paul and Bahati aren’t the only singers to be snubbed again by Groove Awards, gospel singer Papa Dennis also has a bone to pick with the organizers of the premier Gospel Awards event in Kenya.
The ‘Mayaya’ hit-maker has also come out to air his displeasure with the Groove Awards after being snubbed for the 2nd year straight.
The singer feels someone at Groove Awards has something personal against him and that this did not start yesterday.
“When I was launching my ‘Wonder’ album in 2015, I approached the organizers of Groove Awards to provide sound – a deal which would have seen me part with KSh1.2M – but they declined the offer,” laments Papa Dennis.
He adds that the last quarter of 2015 and 2016 were his best years as a breakout artiste and surely deserved a nomination slot but none of it came from Groove…but he won the Male Artist of the Year at Mwafaka in 2015 beating Willy Paul and Bahati.
Asked whether he’s just being a cry-baby, the singer vehemently denies arguing that he’s just voicing his concerns and that he has nothing against the awards or its organizers.
