‘I Didn’t Promise You any Grammy!’- 9ice Backs Down After Failing to Win the Award
9ice has changed tune years after his song Street Credibility in which he promised to bring the prestigious Grammy Award home.
Singing in the hit song featuring 2face Idibia, the Gongo Aso crooner brimmed with confidence when he sang, “Don’t doubt me/I go bring home Grammy.”
And in a recent interview after he failed to cop the award, he told Punch that he still looks forward to making Nigeria proud.
“I am still working on bringing the Grammy to Nigeria. Abraham Lincoln tried several times before he became the president of the US while Buhari tried about four times before he became president. As long as I am still doing music, I can still get the Grammy,” 9ice said.
But the rapper has now changed tunes. Speaking with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbin Minds yesterday, the rapper clarified that he never promised anyone the award but himself.
“I didn’t promise you; I am promising myself what I want for my life. I am talking about my story. I [was] saying it to myself. I was speaking out loud. It is good that you asked; I am still holding on to it. Man propose, God dispose,” he told Obi-Uchendu.
“I am not gonna rush or run because people ask me ‘wey Grammy?’ I will run my race at my own pace,” said the rapper.
The rapper also spoke about his brief feud with Falz, the inspiration behind his songs which many people feel gives encouragement, his relationship and more.
