After the musical reality show, Mentor II, the name Adez has become a mantra on the lips of good music lovers when recounting amazing performers in that season. “Mentor II is Adez and Adez is Mentor II” fans confidently posit.
The maiden edition of the Bass Awards, an annual event that seeks to reward African Reggae and Dancehall Musicians saw the name of Ghana’s darling girl Victoria Nana Adezewa Stokes who flirts with the microphone as Adez nominated in a category with her maiden song ‘Budiin’ which features Stonebwoy.
The Award Scheme which seeks to appreciate and celebrate musicians within the Reggae and Dancehall genre has Jamaica’s Elephant Man as headliner. One of the difficult-to-predict categories which caught the attention of www.233times.com and this Reporter is the ‘Collaboration/Reggae Songs’.
With names of big wigs like Blakk Rasta/ Jah Amber ( Our Africa), Adez/ Stonebwoy (Budin), Red Fayah/ Esssence (The Turban), Gavana / Torch Agoal ( Virtuous Woman), Friction/ Guru (Life Is Not Easy), Kese ft. Jupita (Care) and Ruff and Smooth ft. Iwan (Time Changes), this Reporter asks who towers?
Asking ardent followers of the Reggae genre, many with technical explanations pointed out Adez ft Stonebwoy (Budiin) as the ‘diamond’ in that category. This keeps www.233times.com eagle eyed on that Category to ascertain the ‘Reggae Prophetical’ prowess of those contacted.
The winner for that category fortunately-unfortunately is based on a Committee voting which puts fans in their prayers ‘suits’ to see Ghana’s darling girl, Adez queen the others.
The nominees jam for the BASS Awards is on 5th July at the Accra Sport Stadium and the main Awards is 6th July, 2013 at the National Theatre.
