Octopizzo is one of the top Hip Hop artists in kenya , so yesterday during the Bingwa Awards he was given an award for the ”Come Back of The Year ” surprisingly Octo has took it to social media to express his disappointment for the award. Through his Facebok Page , Octopizzo said that he wont take the Come Back Artist Of The Year award because he believes that he has been in the game since the release of his first single hit ”On Top”. He said the award would have been given to Wahu whom he was in the same category. Octo went ahead to tell the Bingwa Awards organizers to do a background check of his music catalogue before giving him any nomination again.
I never understand awards in this Country,I’d rather you acknowledge & Respect my work than award me & nominating me for a “comeback” Award which was such a joke,so if you don’t mind plizz give my award to Wahu who was in the same category
Thanks for #BingwaAwards for the Award last Night,unfortunately I won’t take the award of “ComeBack Artist Of The Year” I never went anywhere,I’ve been here since my 1st hit single OnTop,I put in more work than any artist of my Genre ,unless you are awarding me for coming back from my Europe tour then it doesn’t make sense ,I never understand awards in this Country,I’d rather you acknowledge & Respect my work than award me & nominating me for a “comeback” Award which was such a joke,so if you don’t mind plizz give my award to Wahu who was in the same category. Next time you nominate me please make sure you do a background check of my catalogue;The Quality of Hip hop music when it comes to Audio & video that I’ve brought to this industry since I stepped in. You can’t compare to any not even close,All in all I wish you the best and congrats to the “Winners” last night,& we still have along way to go as far as awards are concerned.
