Ghanaian rapper, Kwesi Arthur is unperturbed by his loss at the 2018 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.
He lost out on the ‘Viewers’ Choice – Best New International Act’ award to the South African artiste, Sjava. Hours after the event was held, Arthur tweeted:
“How can I lose when I came from nothing.”
Kwesi Arthur took to his social media pages to freestyle for Ghanaians and his fans to show how much he appreciate their effort for him to win the ‘Viewers’ Choice – Best New International Act’.[irp posts=”1112″ name=”KWESI ARTHUR lost #BETAWARD2018 to SJAVA from South Africa”]
After the nominees for that category were announced, Kwesi Arthur, who was clearly overwhelmed, said on Twitter:
“This journey just gets crazier each day, who ever thought a kid from C9 Tema, Ghana would be nominated for such a prestigious award!! We thank God for the grace, and I can’t thank you people enough for your support!”
Even after the South Africa was announced winner during the PreShow on Sunday, Kwesi Arthur didn’t feel like a loser.
For the first time, in a long while, Ghanaian entertainment personalities put aside their differences to campaign massively for the young act.
Kwesi Arthur is the second Ghanaian artiste to be nominated for that category. MzVee was nominated for that award in 2015.
He gained mainstream acclaim after the release of his song ‘Grind Day.’ The remix of the song featuring Sarkodie and Medikal cemented his appeal to music fans.
The 2018 Ghana Music Awards ‘Hip Pop Song of the Year’ winner has since featured on a number of songs by both mainstream and ‘underground’ artists.
