Dope Nation, a Ghanaian musical duo made up of identical twin brothers, have voiced their displeasure over “Gboza,” one of their most well-known hit songs, getting nominated in the wrong category.

The group, who are also producers, disclosed this while appearing as guests on TV3 New Day.

The trio contends that the song should not be nominated for Best Afro-pop Song because it combines House music, Afrobeats, and Amapiano.

They emphasized how important it is to thoroughly investigate their music and comprehend the range of genres it contains.

“No! The song “Gboza” is not Afro-pop. Afrobeats and Amapiano are blended with house music, as I already mentioned. So, I think you need to come check out my songs when you offer me a genre, a group member stated.

Dope Nation recommended the VGMA board and organizers, Charterhouse, to form a group of producers to start a statewide studio tour in order to comprehend the music being produced, reinforcing the need for thorough investigation.

Dope Nation suggested that the VGMA put together a group of up-and-coming producers and industry professionals to go out and analyze the music.

Dope Nation stated that raising a protest will reflect poorly on them, just like it did in the case of Jhay Bad, who was kicked out of the Best New Artiste category.

They said, “When you come out and say it, you are seen as cocky or something.”
