Often tagged the most controversial artist in Ghana, member of the most creative musical group, FOKN Bois, Wanlov the Kubolor has expressed his appreciation for winning the Mondomix Babel Med Music award for 2013 with his album African Gypsy.
According to Wanlov, the Mondomix Babel Med Music Award is his biggest and most significant award so far as his musical career is concerned although the same album has won some awards from Sweden and France. Speaking to NY DJ on Homestretch on Kapital Radio, Wanlov said;
Babel med is one of the biggest music expos in the world and out of the thousands of applicants, I was selected amongst a 30 who were shortlisted and to win over all these world class artists such as Sia Tolno from Guinea-Conakry who won the 2011 RFI Discoveries Award over me, I can call this a big boost so far as my music is concerned in Europe.
Wanlov’s happiness stems from the fact that the Mondomix Babel Med Music award is the only award given out during this great world musical expo which comes of in Marseille, France from the 29th to the 31st of march 2013.
