A board member of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Nii Ayi Tagoe, has disclosed that rapper Medikal, had only 13 votes for New Artiste of the Year at the 2017 awards.
According to Nii, who made the revelation on the Starr FM’s ‘Morning Zoo,’ the general public that seemed to have shown support to Medikal prior to the awards, did not really vote for him.
“The people who made noise for these artistes on social media didn’t really go out to vote. Medikal had 13 votes from the general public for the New Artiste of the Year category,” he said.
Before the awards, Medikal was tipped as a potential winner of the New Artiste of the Year and the Artiste of the Year categories by most music pundits. Even though he had the highest nominations of 7, he did not win any of them.
Although the organisers have published results for the nominees from the votes by the Academy, Board and General Public, the breakdown for each of these three voting groups is unknown to the public.
In the wake of this, Nii’s statement comes as a serious revelation about the VGMA voting pattern and some have suggested that the breakdown for all the categories be published to allay people doubts and enable the artiste to know how they really fared in the awards.
‘We Need to Pray For Shatta Wale, He’s GRADUALLY Going MAD’– Bullet
CEO of Rufftown records, Bullet has called on Ghanaians to pray for Shatta Wale because according to him, the dude is going mad gradually.
Shatta Wale descended on Bullet in the wake of the former’s insinuations that some artistes were making demands before performing at the much hyped Ebony’s tribute concert which is slated for March 23 at the Trade Fair Centre here in Accra.
Even though Bullet later clarified in series of interviews that Shatta Wale wasn’t the one making the demand as many Ghanaians believed, the Freedom hitmaker still went ahead and called him a fool.
Then just yesterday (March 17) Shatta Wale, who is currently in America shooting a music video, called into Peace FM’s Entertainment Review program to throw jabs at Bullet and also called the upcoming Ebony Tribute concert useless.
In reacting to his comment, Bullet said he’s sad for Shatta Wale and asked Ghanaians to pray for Shatta as he’s not correct in the head.
