Jovi will not be attending the Kora awards and this is why!

As we all should know by now, Camer’s mboko god; Jovi, aka Le Monstre, was nominated at the Kora awards for Best Album. The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place in a couple of days in Namibia and to that effect, Jovi released a statement via his record label; New Bell Music, saying that he will not attend the Kora awards with reasons why. This is the statement:

“March 11, 2016

We would like to announce to our fans that Jovi will not be attending the 2016 Kora Awards. We are very appreciative of the professional and cordial communication we have had with the Kora Awards committee since August 2014, when they first expressed interest in Jovi. While we have had a great relationship with the committee and organizers, we have still not received any information on Jovi’s travel arrangements, even though we have requested details since January 2016. It is not feasible for us to continue to put other projects and engagements on hold, while we wait for information. We have done our best to promote the awards show, created material to promote his nomination, discussed it in interviews, and heavily encouraged our fans to vote. With less than one week left before Jovi is scheduled to leave, we have had no response to get information available for us to plan our itinerary, and we prefer not to scramble at the last minute to make arrangements. We SINCERELY appreciate all of the fans who have voted for Jovi’s Mboko God to win Best Album. We would not have reached this far without your support! Jovi is proud to represent Cameroon for the Kora Awards, and we wish all the nominees and the Kora Awards committee the best of luck! Thank you to all the fans that have spent funds texting, voted online, and shared the nomination. We hope to work again with the Kora Awards in the future.


New Bell Music”
