Brymo claims award organizers usually reach a swap deal with musicians before handing them awards.
The singer speaking in a recent interview with Cable, says some times, artistes have to perform for free in order to be awarded.
I do not think that Brymo is not getting as much accolade as he should get.
Brymo is getting exactly what Brymo should be getting now because if Brymo were to get more, then the award guys will not make money anymore.
If somebody (the artist) is offering you (the award body) cash and will give you free performance at your event, would you rather not give them the award?
Than give it to me who sits in my house and just write songs and just smoke weed. So you’d rather give somebody who came to you and said ‘I need this award, it’s important to my career’.
So it’s a complication. And then the awards, they make artists look bigger. So for some artists, the award will make them become a-list.
So if they have to do something for free for the award body, if they have to go there and even invest money in it, they will have to so they can get what they want from it. It has become their own business strategy.
As far as I’m concerned I’m getting exactly what is due to me and people must understand that what is due to me has actually improved over the years.
So I feel like over time things will only get better. So if anybody is feeling like Brymo is not getting as much as he should, I beg them to please calm down. There’s no problem.
Let’s keep moving forward. I think progress is more important. Success is actually not a destination, it’s a journey.
