Grammy Awards: I was disqualified for putting their logo on my promotional flyer – MOGMusic

Nana Yaw Boakye, multiple award-winning Ghanaian gospel musician better known as MOGmusic has disclosed that he got disqualified from the Grammy nomination list due to a mistake made by his social media team.

According to him, his team had included the official Grammy logo on his promotional flyer for MOGmusic’s album “Koinonia Phase II” and had admitted that a mistake on his part led to his disqualification from the Grammy nomination list.

MOGmusic had earlier shared that his album was being considered for a Grammy Award in categories such as Best Gospel Album, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist. However, he fell short when the final nominations were announced.

Speaking in an interview with Hitz FM, he took full responsibility for the oversight and explained that the inclusion of the Grammy logo was an error.

Despite the setback, he also urged Ghanaians to rally behind their artists and avoid mocking those who did not receive nominations.

“My social media handler made a mistake and put the official logo of the Grammys, and it got posted. Some Ghanaians drew my attention to it, and we quickly took it down, but it was too late. That is what went wrong on my side, it’s a mistake that my team made, and I take the bullet for myself,” MOGmusic stated.
