Field Marshall, former label mate with Vybrant Fyah, has made some very salient points in a recent interview on radio.
Field Marshall who was on Class 91.3fm on Saturday, February 29 says âthe VGMA Board has done its best over the years to reward artistes and their works but when you look critically, majority of their recognitions are directed towards how popular songs or productions are. This I think is doing musicians and producers a lot of disservice because you have to âbuyâ votes to be in the lead and get awarded for it, whether the song is a good one or not, whether the production is top notch or not, they are all about rewarding how popular or who buys the most votes. It is unfair when this happens so many musicians get really disappointedâ.
âHappy Yourselfâ is the latest release by Field Marshall who now runs himself as an indie artiste. He was known to have shot up to the limelight doing Dancehall music. But the super talented singjay has switched to Afrobeats in the past 3 years and has dropped other classic tunes âLove You Dieâ and âTankerâ.
