Ghanaian Reggae artiste IWAN says even though he earned two nominations in the BASS Awards, the organizers and committee members failed to nominate one of his songs.
According to IWAN, he deserved to be in the ï¿½Best Song Writer of the Yearï¿½ category with his song ï¿½Face of Jah.ï¿½
ï¿½Well I think I deserve to be in the ï¿½Best Song Writer of the Yearï¿½ category but I didnï¿½t see myself there and secondly my song ï¿½Face of Jahï¿½ that most enjoyed listener ship and airplay wasn't nominated. For these two reasons, Iï¿½m not happy. They robbed me they didn't give me that particular nomination, which I find so pathetic to happen to someone like me in this reggae industry because everybody knows that song and it was the first song on the list of songs I submitted to the committee,ï¿½ IWAN told NEWS-ONE.
ï¿½Well itï¿½s cool but for me to be truthful, Iï¿½m not really happy about my nominations. It is cool because my fans may be happy about it that at least I have got some nominations at the BASS Awards but personally Iï¿½m not happy about it. Even if I was to be given 10 nominations, my hope would have been on that ï¿½Best Song Writer of the Yearï¿½ category, that is where I feel I would have been the automatic winner. With that particular song, the public can even attest to it,ï¿½ IWAN stated.

This yearï¿½s event is under the theme, ï¿½Turn it Up.ï¿½
