Harvey Mason Jr, Grammy Awards CEO has given the guidelines artists need to follow before they can win an award.
Harvey Mason in an exclusive dinner with Ghanaian artists and other industry players said one needs to live in the United States of America and be a part of the GRAMMY Academy to win an award.
He lamented artists who are members of the Recording Academy are the ones who vote for their colleagues after nominations are filed.
He, moreover explained that artists needn’t be with a recording label, have a huge fanbase, not the sales of their songs nor the streams guarantee a win for an award.
“Not the sales, not the streams, not the how many fans, not the how many followers but purely on the opinion and it’s very hard. As you all know because it’s subjective,” he said.
“If you are a member of the Academy, you’ve got to be a professional in the United States, for now, the United States,” he added.
In the nutshell, one has to live in the United States, be a member of the Recording Academy and produce good songs.
