It has emerged Samini did not win the award for BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT at the Black Canadians Awards held in Canada last weekend, contrary to an earlier report.
Saminis’ team had relied on series of press publications on the subject, and came to the conclusion that their act had won.
However further checks reveal the award went to Trinidad and Tobagao’s Destra Garcia. The category also had Nigeria’s Waje, South Africa’s Lira and Khuli Chana as well as the Bajan female Soca act Alsion Hinds as contenders.
One, Julz of GhanaMixtapes, who was at the event and had relayed the information to the press, has since taken to Twitter to apologize to Samini.
Samini has accepted his apology, saying “blunders do happen.” “Maybe i should have waited to see confirmation on the BCA site.”
The earlier statement we published from Samini’s camp in the morning read:
The African Dancehall King SAMINI, wins another International Award, this time; “BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT” at the Black Canadians Awards held on the 7th of June at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto, Canada . He was in the same category with Allison Hinds, Khuli Chana Waje, Destra Garcia and others.
Award-winning Samini continues to show cause for why He believes in African Dancehall Music and making Ghana Proud, while the international community and brands keep recognising Him for such great strides in promoting Good African Dancehall music.
This is another feat in a week where Samini gears up to Launch His Lounge and Restaurant- “DanceStardom” and surely, it will be one big party/celebration this Friday.
Thanks to all fans and everyone who contributed to Samini winning this award. #GH #DanceStardom launches on June 13th with the mega celebration. HighGradeFamily……..#
