D-naff, NAMAs cross swords over nominations

Multiple awards winning gospel artist D-naff and the prestigious awards show have crossed swords with the former questioning why he was left out of the artist of the decade list since he has also won multiple awards before.

D-naff, argues that he has scooped more than five awards in the past ten years and deserves his nominee among the best of the decade.

He said his omission might also show that the awards show does not have much respect for gospel artists.

“ I don’t want anything from them, I just want them to be transparent and honest in their vet, ” said D-naff.

He added that “I am the only guy in this country that has put the gospel award on the map. I won this award so many times that people started thinking that I had a deal with MTC.”

NAMAs executive member Tim Ekandjo told unwrap.online that D- naff, must use the formal channels to raise his grievances.

“ We have never announced the number of awards won by the current nominated artists. The D-naff matter will be looked into once an official request is received and once we have feedback we will give him official feedback.” Ekandjo stated.

He also added that “We have always pride the NAMAs brand as one that’s been consistent, open and transparent and that is why our credibility speaks volumes and we intend to maintain that brand image till the end.”

Ekandjo added that once there is a complaint artists are encouraged to write to them and once they receive their complaints, the team will look into the matter and give the artist feedback.

D-naff has won 13 awards all together of which 10 are from the NAMAs.
