Ghanaian singer, Chase Forever born Fianko Bossman has been explaining why he also voluntarily opted out of the 2016 edition of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
According to him, the country’s biggest music award event is waste of his time, alleging “it does not reward excellence rather popularity.”
“I have not submitted because it’s a waste of time. I have constantly submitted for songwriters and never made that category but everybody in Ghana knows I’m a songwriter right? I wrote songs that made it to the top and never got recognized,” he told Ghanareporter.com early Wednesday.
High life musician, Kwabena Kwabena eaelier Tuesday said the award ceremony is a ‘private party’ and he started boycotting it three years ago.
Also the VGMAs Board announced on Tuesday that, one of the country’s foremost musicians and the man who prices himself as the ‘dancehall king’, Shatta Wale doesn’t qualify for this year’s award unless he completes the process of officially apologising for maligning the VGMA Board.
That declaration was made at a press conference in the capital Accra, to address issues and controversies generated by this year’s award.
Chase who also said he is not taking part in this year’s award, ‘the VGMAs needs to take a second look at its activities because, “everybody can’t lie.”
“Well a private party (laughs) I don’t really know how Kwabena interpreted that but everybody can’t lie. I put a lot in my art. When my song: Tell Me Your Name came out, there was nothing like that. I feel like the board dwell on popularity more than the craft. So no shade but if a monkey had a song out and it was popular they’ll over look my creativity and hand an award to the monkey. I spent a lot on my music; video craft, directors and making sure my video interprets the music,” he said.
“I wish them well but they should pay attention to creatives. Popularity is good but the technical aspect of the music lacks attention. I’m not inspired to make music in Ghana. They had me second guessing myself for real. But music is music when it’s good it is good,” he added.
I nearly aborted DJ Switch when I conceived her – Mother
Mother of Ghana’s youngest DJ, DJ Switch has disclosed that she considered having an abortion while she was pregnant with her daughter.
She remorsefully said on Zylofon 102.1 FM’s Showbiz Agenda that had she known her daughter would have turned out successful, the thought will not have crossed her mind.
“I almost aborted her. I actually went ahead to purchase the drug to terminate the pregnancy but I changed my mind later on”, she said.
According to her, she realized she was with another child six months after having her first child and could not bear the stigma.
“I was the talk of town. Everybody was pointing fingers at me because I had just graduated and in less than two years, was going to be a mother of two”, she added.
However, she expressed her joy in the fact that she restrained from the act and, now her daughter is the most popular young DJ in the country.
