MOGmusic fell short of nominations in categories such as Best Gospel Album, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist, despite his ambitions.

In an interview with Hitz FM, he apologised for the blunder, stating that the use of the official Grammy emblem on a promotional brochure was a mistake made by his social media team, which resulted in his disqualification.

“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.

Despite the defeat, MOGmusic advised Ghanaians to unite behind their artists and avoid ridiculing those who did not earn nominations.

He stressed the need for togetherness and solidarity within Ghana’s music community.

“One piece of advice I have for Ghanaians is that I think we need to be very supportive. Davido submitted his work time and time again, but he just got his nominations. I never saw Nigerians trolling Davido or comparing him to Burna Boy. I think what we should do is be more united so that these people will realize that there is a group of people from Ghana who support their people or go all out for their people,” he urged.
