At Long Last Tinny Speaks, He Says It Was Wrong For Kwaw Kese To Win 5 Awards At The Music Awards

Tinny Ananconda1

Hip life artiste and winner of Ghana Music Awards New Discovery in 2004, Tinny has doubted the credibility of the Ghana Music Awards, especially in the year Kwaw Kese swept majority of the awards.

In the 2008 edition of the awards, Kwaw Kese picked 5 awards including the overall ‘Artiste of the Year’ honour. He achieved this feat with his ‘Abodam’ album which he released a year earlier with songs like ‘Odiem’, ‘Na Ya Tal’ and ‘Wose Mmaa Pe Wo’.

Speaking on Talk Showbiz on eTV yesterday, Tinny said it was wrong for him to have picked all the awards on that night. The ‘Anaconda’ rapper said even though, the Abodam man is his friend, he did not deserve all the awards.

With this year being his first time ever talking about the awards openly, Tinny said he was discouraged and ‘killed’ his mind on the awards, therefore putting his mind on having fun instead and not confusing himself with getting any awards.

“After Kwaw Kese got the 5 awards, I killed my mind.” Said the Ga rapper. However Tinny conceded that he was the big act during that year but said “something went wrong” to enable him win all those awards.
