Rapper Lukeman Ekow Baidoo, who is popularly known in showbiz circles as Teephlow has revealed that based on the efforts and energy he has invested in his music career this year, the crown for the coveted rapper of the year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is one that he has full entitlement to.
He told Sammy Flex on the ‘Showbiz Agenda’ show that even though the likes of Medikal, Obibini, Sarkodie, and M.anifest were nominated with their songs “How Much Remix, The Dream, Can’t Let You Go, Feels” respectively, none of these songs can march his song “Preach” which is in the same category with them because it is better lyrically.
The rapper further stated that even though he believes that he stands in the pole position to win the award, the part of audience votes which forms a part of the criteria used in the determination of the winners of the award is where his worry lies.
Teephlow admitted that in as much as he has a very good audience appeal, all the other nominees in the category with him have a great number and as such he has another believe that the award will go a separate way.
The “Blessings” singer suggested that because the rapper of the year category is a more technical one, the board should look into picking people who have a good understanding of rap music to determine the winner. A move the rapper stated would afford some of them to also win the award.
