Muguees(R2Bees) have won many awards to themselves and looking around what ‘some’ upcoming artist and colleagues are doing in the industry because of awards, he finds it embarrassing and had this to say:
Mankind No come into this life for Music awards.. that ish is funny as hell… don’t attach urself to it.. just do da music….. it’s embarrassing Charley
The ace vocalist advised his fellow artistes to have extreme focus for doing music. Muguees lamented on how engrossed some artist have become with music awards. He said it is embarrassing to see his colleagues focus much courtesy on awards reasonably than doing music.
According to him, if you are musician, your main concentration should be the music you do. Focusing ultimately on awards, is funny as hell.
He advices; as a musician determining to win an awards should not be the definite purpose for doing music.
