TGMA on the same level as Grammys and BET – Stonebwoy


Multiple award-winning Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla, otherwise known as Stonebwoy has recently expressed his deep admiration for the Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA), highlighting that the event carries a similar level of importance as globally recognized music awards such as the BET and Grammys.

The renowned singer and songwriter, who was recently honored with the prestigious TGMA Artiste of the Year award, underscored the significance of acknowledging local accomplishments.

During a recent interview, Stonebwoy shared his perspective on the TGMA’s role in acknowledging and supporting the dedication of Ghanaian musicians.

“I am truly appreciative. No one could even notice that night. I had to take my medication during the event. The truth is, I hold a great deal of respect for the Ghana Music Awards, and it is evident in the effort I put into it because that is the Ghana Music Awards,” he said.

The ‘Therapy Hitmaker further emphasized that while he aspires for international acclaim and envisions receiving accolades like the Grammys or BET awards, he believes it is essential to appreciate and nurture local award ceremonies. He highlighted that these global awards essentially serve as local events in their respective countries, just as the TGMA does for Ghana.


“As much as we strive to transcend our national boundaries and reach the Grammys or the Latin Awards or the BETs, we must recognize that those awards are local to Americans. Therefore, it is crucial to cultivate our own local awards. Without the Ghana Music Awards, what would we have? I wouldn’t want to be left out. Even on days when I wasn’t performing, like last year, I attended and presented an award. I truly value it,” he expressed
