Ghanaian artiste, Rocky Dawuni, has received a nomination for the upcoming 65th Grammy Awards.

This will be a record-third nomination from the award scheme as far as the Ghanaian music scene is concerned.

The selection of his song ‘Never Bow Down’ for the Best Global Music Performance category comes after the musician was considered by the Grammys back in 2015 and 2021.

The development was announced on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, by the Recording Academy.

The reggae artiste says he is “honored to be nominated.”

“I am truly honored to be nominated for another #Grammy award for my song “Never Bow Down” feat. @BLVKH3RO. This is huge for Africa and the Carribean coming together on this global roots anthem! Thank you to everyone who was part of this and congrats to my fellow nominees,” he posted on Twitter.

The other songs gunning for the same award are Burna Boy’s ‘Last Last’, ‘Udhero Na’, by Arooj Aftab and Anoushka Shankar, and ‘Gimme Love’, by Matt B and Eddy Kenzo, and ‘Baythe’ by Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini and Nomcebo Zikode.
