Reports making rounds in Ghana’s entertainment cycle say organizers of the upcoming Bass Awards have allegedly disqualified two hot songs of popular Ghanaian dancehall artiste Emmanuel Andrew Samini on reasons of profanity.
On Saturday, Rackus Productions which is organizing the awards in collaboration Bullhaus Entertainment and Solid Multimedia released nominations.
But Samini’s hot songs, ‘Body Flame’ featuring Kaakie and ‘Papistic’, were conspicuously missing in the nominations.
Sources said the songs were taken out due to its lyrical content, which was described as “profane”.
Sources close to the organizers told NEWS-ONE that Samini did not take the development kindly.
He had almost pulled out of the award after a confidant notified him that the songs were disqualified on grounds of “profanity”.
It however took the invention of organizers to explain issues to him to before he was calmed down.
“He was pulling out of the award but they had to explain issues to him before he decided to let things go,” the source added.
Meanwhile, the Dagaati crooner got some nomination with his songs including ‘Time Bomb’ featuring Wizkid, ‘Dadiekye’ and ‘Climax’, which he was featured on by Stonebwoy.
He also got nominations for Kwame Nkrumah Award (Artiste Of The Year(s), Best Performer (Reggae/Dancehall, Best Dancehall Artiste And  Music Video Of The Year(s) – Dancehall categories.
The 2013 Bass Awards will come off at the National Theatre in Accra on July 6, 2013, where African Dancehall and Reggae artistes who have done exceptionally well between 2010 and 2012 will be awarded.
This will be preceded by a nominees jam at the Accra Sports Stadium on July 5, 2013, with performances from artistes including Samini, Stonebwoy, Kaakie and Jupiter.
If Samini had pulled out of the event that would have been a second blow to the award ceremony after Bandana had earlier announced his exit even before nominations came out.
