UK-based Ghanaian music duo, Reggie N Bollie say they would be glad to perform at this year’s Ghana Music Awards.
According to them, they would not hesitate to perform at Ghana’s biggest music awards night on April 8.
The first runner-up at the 2015 X-Factor UK music reality show said the organizers of the event, Charterhouse has done a lot for Ghanaian music and they are ready to reciprocate that by performing at the event.
Speaking on Day Break Hitz on Hitz FM, Reggie N Bollie disclosed they are yet to get an invitation from Charterhouse.
Prior to their interview, there had been speculations in the media that the ‘New Girl’ hitmakers have been billed to perform at this year’s awards, but they denied the rumours.
A member of the group, Reginald Ainooson popularly known as Reggie disclosed their resolve to sign some artistes in Ghana and promote them to the international level. They, however, declined to mention names of artistes they are likely to sign.
The move to sign some Ghana acts, according to him, would help further promote the country’s music to the world.
Reggie N Bollie have been nominated for the 2017 International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) as well as the Best UK Music Artiste category.
They will be competing with seven others in the category including; Zak Abel, Isobel Beardshaw, Shaun Escoffery and Stefanie Allen. The rest are Hip Pop Rapper- Nines, Tom Grennan and J Hus.
The group said they are optimistic they would win the IARA.
They rated themselves ahead of their competitors and explained that their participation in the X-Factor UK has given them an urge over the rest of the nominees who are barely known in the international music terrain.
