In a surprising twist of fate, Camidoh, the immensely talented Afrobeats artist from Ghana, has expressed his awe and appreciation upon receiving a nomination for the prestigious BET Viewer’s Choice: Best New International Act award for 2023.
Among an exceptional group of global musicians carefully selected for the category, including artists like Asake from Nigeria, Flo from the UK, Libianca from Cameroon, Maureen from France, Mc Ryan SP from Brazil, Pabi Cooper from South Africa, Raye from the UK, and Werenoi from France, Camidoh finds himself in illustrious company.
During an interview on TV3 New Day, Camidoh shared his disbelief and the overwhelming emotions that accompanied the nomination. He expressed, “I am still really in shock because I don’t even know what to say. Yesterday, I had to take time to really process it because it’s really like one big blessing. This was not something I was looking out for, do you understand? I mean, I am just grateful.”
The singer admitted that the nomination came as a complete surprise, as it was not a goal he actively pursued. Nevertheless, he recognized its significance and considered it a valuable lesson in his artistic journey.
Camidoh expressed deep gratitude for the opportunity to be recognized on such a prestigious platform.
When asked about the factors contributing to his success, Camidoh attributed it to his team’s strategic marketing plan and their unwavering dedication to reaching a global audience.
He highlighted their commitment to delivering captivating performances during international shows, aiming to leave a lasting impression on audiences in every country they visit. He believes that these tireless efforts played a pivotal role in propelling his career to this remarkable point.
Reflecting on his journey, Camidoh shared, “To answer your question, I think it depends on your goal and based on your marketing plan. It’s just us doing shows across the globe, and when we go into a country, we do the most to ensure that everyone hears of the brand and it cements on the end before you leave. I think these were the very small things that we were doing that brought us here.”
As anticipation continues to grow, fans and well-wishers are urged to rally behind Camidoh and cast their votes, contributing to his path toward potentially securing the coveted honor at the BET Awards. The prestigious event is scheduled to take place at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, June 25.
