Singer, Abolore Adigun, aka 9ice, has said that contrary to popular opinion, he never promised fans to win a Grammy award for them.
9ice who was the talk of the town some decades ago sang in one of his singles
that he will be winning tbe prestigious Grammy Award but never got nominated
not to talk of winning it.
The talented singer during an interview with Sunday Scoop have now revealed
what he meant in the song noting that je never promised any fans.
“People are getting it wrong. I didn’t promise anyone a Grammy award; I
promised myself. I promised myself a lot of things.”
“I promised myself a Music of Black Origin award and I got it. I promised myself to be
one of the most reckoned with artistes and I’ve achieved that.”
“The Grammy award has been one of my targets as well. There is a Yoruba adage
that says, ‘Ba o ku, ise o tan’ which literally means, ‘If there is life, anything can still happen’.”
“I’m still doing music and who says I cannot get it (Grammy award) tomorrow? I still have that belief and I know God will do it for me.”
9ice left the entertainment industry some years back to shoot his shot at politics but
could not fulfill the dream and is now back in the entertainment industry doing what
he does best as he has been dishing out some hit tracks.
The award winning songwriter will be hoping his second coming gets him the prestigious Grammy Award he has always cherish in his illustrious career.
