The Celebrity lookalike group known as 4Kings have claimed that winning the Grammys is a vision and objective they have set for themselves in all of their pursuits.
The group made headlines in recent weeks in the media following their newfound craft of imitating celebrities particularly top Ghanaian musicians including, Mr. Drew, King Promise, Kuami Eugene, and Medikal.
In an interview, the group stated that their recent appearance on a television show had many people questioning why they were given such a big stage, but they felt it was appropriate because they believe they are meant for the Grammys.
According to the quartet, everything they did was geared towards winning the Grammy Awards which is a platform that recognizes outstanding achievements in the music industry.
“Delay interviewed us and people are saying that they do not understand why she interviewed us but they are forgetting that we are Grammy boys.
“The Grammy [Award] is ours. Everything we do is for the sake of the Grammys. Our fights, the suffering… It’s all because of the Grammys”.4Kings
The 4Kings believe that people criticize them because their line of work is in an unexpected space.
“Something that is difficult will definitely not come easy. So sometimes doing things people least expect comes with criticisms”.4Kings
