For some years now, the public hasn’t in anyway disagreed with the ultimate winner of the prestigious Vodafone Ghana music Awards but something different is happening this year.
Lots of industry players and the general public are crying foul over the choice of winner for this year’s event, that’s EL.
Many have registered their displeasure publicly and are unequivocally saying the winner, EL doesn’t merit the awards.
To them Bisa Kdei or even Stonebwoy deserve the artiste of the year nod but not the Koko hitmaker, EL.
Latest to wade into this VGMAS-EL brouhaha is musician Diamond Appiah.
According to Diamond, she loves EL to the maximum and that he is a great artiste and producer by all standards but he doesn’t in anyway deserve the awards.
She posted this open letter to EL;
I love E.L to bits but honestly I think Bisa Kdei should have won Artiste of the year after dropping one hit after the other in the year under review n his enormous contribution to reviving High life music in Ghana. Vgma’s what happened? E.L is a great artiste n a producer by all standards but were his tunes more popular to the masses in Ghana than Bisa last year ? Maybe am lost here n need alot of catching up to do but damn Bisa’s music appealed to all generations nationwide, even in the remote villages and that is why he is undoubtedly my **ARTISTE OF THE YEAR** Congratulations to you Bisa, Whether the votes went in your favour or not ur still the MAN OF THE YEAR . #My Opinion
S/o to CHEATER HOUSE oops I mean Charter House. It saddens my heart to hear from a nominee that some nominees who cldnt pay for an award like him lost it to those who cld afford. How do u intend to grow our music industry with corruption everywhere. We all saw what happened last night and is about time talented musicians shld be stopped being taken for granted..#Save Ghana Music Awards #Talent over Everything #Credibility shld be Key #Pay for an Award must Stop ?
