Hiplife grandpapa, Reggie Rockstone has described comments by a section of the public that his performance on VVIP tracks shows how weak he has become as a rapper as silly.

In a series of tweets abrantepa.com chanced on, Reggie Rockstone indicated that he does not need to prove to anyone that he can rap since his track record speaks for itself.
I guess I jus feel like dues have bin over paid and I aint gotta prove myself to a young head! Check my back see! Still in” front” tho!
He further explained that being a member of the group does not suggest that it would be known for a different style of music stressing that the tradition of the group remains same.
VVIP/VIP tradition remains same Folx! A good beat! Small simple rap! A catchy hook and yo dancing feet is the way of this legendary group
Reggie Rockstone did Reggie Rockstone as he Duz! VVIP is a new story! Do not mix the two! Time to go in with the barz and u know yaw canReggie Rockstone joined VIP [which was made up of Zeal, Promzy and Prodigal] in 2013 after the exit of Promzy. The group then metamorphosed into VVIP and has since produced a number of hit songs including ‘Skolom’, ‘Alhaji’, ‘Dogo Yaro’ and won awards both locally and internationally.
Our source can authoritatively say that VVIP is a force to reckon with in Ghana’s music industry. Indeed, VVIP has been seen on almost all the big stages, shot classic videos and has led their fans to help clean up the capital city and other areas during the National Sanitation Day.
There have been comments that Reggie Rockstone is too old to join a relatively youthful, energetic music group but the rapper replied that “When it comes to music, age is not a factor. What matters is the ability to coordinate well and deliver.”
Meanwhile, Filmmaker, Socrate Safo has urged all to learn from Reggie Rockstone instead of making attempts to retire him.
“We must put a stop to this. We retire our footballers, musicians instead of tapping from their experience. You’ll see some young and ignorant people mount unnecessary pressure on you and you subsequently bow out. Reggie, move on. Don’t be intimidated by these kids. I don’t see anything wrong with his craft. He still sounds good so what is the issue? He can dance, he’s handsome, he can dance so well so I don’t get why someone should raise this issue. In showbiz, there’s no retiring age,” he said on Peace FM.
Who wins Ghana Music Awards ‘Unsung Category’
This year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Unsung Category promises to be the most exciting edition yet, as Closeup toothpaste, the iconic youth brand, partners Charterhouse to provide a more rewarding and exciting experience for underground acts seeking to break into mainstream music.
This great news was first revealed at the nominees’ announcement party, where the six finalists of the unsung category were unveiled. According to the Unilever Closeup Brand Team, “for years, Closeup has been giving people the confidence to get closer.
This year, the brand is giving young and upcoming artistes the chance to break barriers that hold them back and get closer to their dreams of making it big in showbiz. The Unsung category of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is a natural platform for us to achieve this. So with this partnership, Closeup is essentially giving young people a chance to break the barrier into main stream music.
According to Charterhouse, this partnership is greatly desired as it will enable a richer experience for participants. The Unsung acts will have the unique opportunity to put up their best acts before a 10,000+ audience at the Nominees Jam, to win public votes. This will show live on TV3, Ghana Music Awards facebook page, and the Closeup facebook page.
The winner will have a performance slot at music’s biggest night, the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards night, showing live on TV3 in Ghana, across Africa on DSTV, and across the world on social media live. For the first time ever in the history of the award, the Unsung category will receive a special Awards Plaque sponsored by Closeup, and a performance slot on Closeup music activation platforms.
It is no surprise that the Unsung Category of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is catching the eye of corporate Ghana. The success stories of past winners is a testimonial to the program’s relevance, and its ability to help underground acts break the barrier into main stream music.
MzVee won the 1st edition with an exceptional performance; Dark Suburb won the 2nd edition by selling their uniqueness; Adomaa won the 3rd edition fighting equally talented artistes; and Kuami Eugene won the 4th edition with dexterity. Clearly these names have broken the barrier into main stream music, and soon, a new act will join the Unsung hall of fame.
So who amongst the six talented and ambitious nominees will win the number 1 spot? Will it be Kelvin Boy with his dancehall stamp? Dope Nation with their urban rap swag? Dhat Gyal with her Afro Pop appeal? Royal Chris with his anointed gospel tunes? Real MC with his locally blended hip-hop swag? Or O’Bkay with his contemporary rap feel? These nominees are literally one step away from breaking the barrier into main stream, and come Friday the 23rd of March at the Jubliee Park in Cape Coast, each artiste will have the unique opportunity to demonstrate to Ghanaians why he/she deserves a spot on Ghana’s most coveted music platform. Till then, the one question worthy of asking, is who will be number 1?
As always, the public has a say in pushing the right talent through. The public is thus encouraged to have their say by voting for the best Unsung Act by visiting their social media pages, Charterhouse media pages, and Ghana Music Awards social media pages for instructions. The public is also notified about live event shows on Closeup, Charterhouse, and Ghana Music Awards social media pages.
