Quite characteristic of virtually all awards events held worldwide, there comes the moment when individual artists and their managements hit at the organizers and same can be said of the first ever upcoming Ragga and Dancehall BASS Awards.
Dancehall artist Iwan expressed his opinion on Facebook as he posted;
Bass Awards organizers, plz respect the IWAN brand. Am not hungry for awards. If U have given IWAN 9 nominations. And U can’t even put my name and image in ur adverts. Not to talk about performing on stage. What do U take Me for
He continued by writing;
I never picked any Bass Awards form. So if U can’t give me that respect. Why did U put me in ur nominations. Just want my fans to know this. U always award me with ur words. U say to Me.. I appreciate that more than to be used and abused at the end.
Do you think Iwan has a just cause? Should 9 nominations necessarily qualify him for a performance on the night or are the organizers just interested in holding the awards/
