Camidoh, a rising star in Ghana’s Afrobeats scene, has been nominated for the prestigious BET Viewer’s Choice: Best New International Act award for 2023.
He joins a select group of outstanding musicians from around the world, such as 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.
The singer shared his astonishment and appreciation for the nomination during a TV3 New Day interview. He said, “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.”
Camidoh revealed that he did not expect the nomination, as it was not a goal he actively pursued. However, he acknowledged its importance and saw it as 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 that led to his success, Camidoh credited his team’s strategic marketing plan and their relentless efforts to reach a global audience.
He highlighted their dedication 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 crucial role in advancing his career to this remarkable point.
Camidoh reflected on his journey and said, “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 build, 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.
