In fact, Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Nomination Committee have exhibited another unexpected crass of discriminative behaviour towards the Ghana music industry which I think has reduced the prestige, honour and respect for their awards. I don’t really know what’s going on with the Vodafone Awards committee. To be very frank, I don’t know the corrupt criteria they use to nominate the artistes for the various awards.
First and foremost, I stand for correction if anything is wrong with this significant issue I am about to raise.
I have now realized the corrupt, preferential treatment and discriminative attitudes of the nomination committee with the same style of nomination demonstrated last year. The same old artistes in the same categories like that of last year. The lists of nominees were full of mistakes if they don’t know. What is VIP doing in the “Artiste Of The Year” category. Maybe, it’s their “Pampana” which won them that significant slot. I thought an Artiste Of the Year would be an artiste that had an album with at least two or three hit songs on it.
I don’t know why some people decide to bring the Ghana music industry into bane. How can the committee decide to dump Lousika’s “Get Money” into the gutters with the intention of satisfying their pocket and their preferred artistes and managers around them.
And Fuse ODG’s “Antenna” in the “Song Of The Year” category? Hmmmmm…Is it the original song or the remix featuring Wyclef? If it’s the original, then why? And if it’s the remix, when did he release it? I have now seen that, maturity of a song in the public domain doesn’t count when it comes to nomination.
What’s going on? “Pizza & Burger” by Sarkodie and Jayso have been nominated in the “Best Collaboration Of The Year” category…Why?
Why is Stay Jay’s “My Baby” exempted from the “Hiplife Song Of The Year” list? Maybe, it was a mistake but such a mistake was intentionally committed. It’s true.
Where is Guru????????????
What else, M.anifest’s “Maka a Maka” is missing in the “Best Video Of The Year” category. The nomination committee haven’t watch that video before. PERIOD!!!!
And the worst of all, AJ Nelson, Jupiter, Kwesi Oteng, Kesse, Stonebouy, D3,Yaw Siki were not nominated in the “New Artiste Of The Year” category.
Now, this is the funny moment, Côte d’Ivoire’s DJ Arafat, Uganda and East Africa’s finest Juliana Kanyomozi, Alicios of DR. Congo,Kidum of Burundi and Bushoke of Tanzania were all missing out of the “African Artiste Of The Year” category. I ask them why? Are Nigerians the only African country recognized worldwide?
The case is simple!!! The Nomination Committee of this year’s Vodafone Awards are corrupt and biased. Their performance is below average. Nothing more.
