Abraham Kamara, alias DJ Baby Boy, has sharply reacted to a recent wave of criticisms leveled against the 3rd edition of Liberia Music Awards held in the U.S. state of Minnesota, that the awards were rewarded based on favoritism and that it lacked transparency.
Baby Boy, who recently won the LMA ‘On Air Personality of the Year,’ labeled those behind the criticisms as a disgrace to the industry.
“For me those that are making such noise around here are the ones who refused to or did little awareness, thinking that they were going to win because of their names,” DJ Baby Boy said.
“I was not complacent like the others after I got the nomination message. Immediately, I begin creating awareness both on radio and social media asking fans to vote for me, and they did.
“The records are there, and it was because of my hard work through creating awareness that earned me the award, not favoritism,” Baby Boy asserted.
He further described the criticisms as week arguments that had no iota of truth, adding: “And if they feel cheated, let them challenge LMA to release the results.”
Though the disc jockey refused to name anyone behind the recent wave of criticisms, however, he called on them to stop the behavior because it shows disunity in the industry, “which is not healthy for our growth together.”
However, Baby Boy praised the LMA team for the good work done so far in recognizing artistic achievements, DJs and excellence in the industry, without favoritism.
