Famous Ghanaian producer, Justice Oteng, known in showbiz as Wei Ye Oteng says he was shock Swedru-based artiste, Patapaa Amisty didn’t win the “Most Popular Song of the Year” award at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
According to Oteng, it was unfair on the side of the VGMA Board to urge fans to vote for nominees in the “Most Popular Song of the Year” category because he believes it “should be unanimous by the Board and Academy”.
Oteng indicated that the VGMA Board has compromised “the legitimacy of the awards just for the coins [money] you’ll make from votes”.
To make his point, Oteng continued: “No song was bigger than “One Corner” in 2017 Why u dey play with peoples struggle and hustle? The boy chop the thing hands down. Stop playing with peoples hard work and emotions
Speaking with DJ Shoka on Best Entertainment Zone last saturday on Best 90.5Fm inside Bogoso in the western region he said, How do u vote for the most popular song of the year… Popular means popular period. This should be unanimous by the board and academy… Backed by data from radio stations. u can’t ask to vote for this! That’s how u end up with the wrong song. Cos votes can be bought.. just buy loads of credits get your team to embark on Heavy voting. This means u compromise the legitimacy of the awards just for the coins you’ll make from votes.
No song was bigger than one corner in 2017.. why u dey play with ppls struggle and hustle? The boy chop the thing hands down. Stop playing with peoples hard work and emotions.
