Grammy Awards CEO, Harvey Mason Jr, during an exclusive dinner meeting with Ghanaian artists, gave artists the inside scope of how one can win a GRAMMY.
According to the Grammy boss, to win a Grammy, one needs to live in the United States of America and be a part of the GRAMMY Academy.
“In order to win a GRAMMY, first, you've got to be part of the Academy and then the membership of the Academy will vote for you. “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 disclosed.
“Right now, if you are a working professional in the United States, you become a member of the Recording Academy, once you are a member of the Recording Academy, all the music is submitted, the members listen to it and you are evaluated on the quality of the art.
“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 added. “So Best Song, Best Record, just the opinion of the membership in that particular year, and that's how you win a GRAMMY.
“That's it, the vote is the vote. There’s no committee, there are no journalists, no labels, just music professionals voting for their peers. Period,” he noted.
