At the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, rapper Amerado had a touching moment as he thanked TV host Deloris Frimpong Manso for her persistent support in promoting his 2022 single, “Obiaa Boa,” which got him nominated.
The crowd exploded in applause as fellow rapper EL announced Amerado as the winner of the category for “Best Rap Performance.”
“You know one thing, one woman who supported ‘Obiaa Boa’ so much is Deloris Frimpong Manso, God bless you. Thank you all so much,” he shouted.
He had previously been unsuccessful in receiving the honor, so this was his third nomination.
Amerado honored the renowned Ghanaian rappers who paved the path for him during his victory speech, including Okyeame Kwame, Sarkodie, Reggie Rockstone, and Obrafour.
“Shout out to Okyeame Kwame for paving the way. Shout out to Sarkodie, Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour, Strongman, this is for you, Frimpong, King Palutta, every Kumasi rapper out there, I love you so much,” he said.
He also gave a special shoutout to Frimpong, King Palutta, and all Kumasi-based rappers, proclaiming that “this is for every rapper out there, your dreams are valid.”
Amerado’s speech on Saturday intensified rumours of an affair between himself and Delay, however, he has vehemently denied it
The rapper revealed in the past that Delay naturally adored him and supported his craft. He also debunked the assertion that the rumours were engineered to make him popular.
“It was organic, It was natural. She likes me and she was willing to support my craft. There’s nothing like we did it for likes,
I think it was more than that because Delay hardly opens up to people you get it and me being lucky to be closer to her means she foresaw the future. So I feel like what she did for me goes beyond liking someone and I reciprocated it.” he explained
