- Jupitar says he deserves some nominations in the 2017 VGMAs
- The artiste says he submitted all his works for entries on time
Board members of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), have started receiving serious backlash from some aggrieved musicians barely 48hours after releasing nominations for this year’s awards.
Popular Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Jupitar who appears not happy about the nominations list released, has fired his first shot at the award board and organizers.
According to the musician, board members of the VGMAs are nothing but a bunch of idiots and hypocrites who are only good at ‘warming chairs’.
The dancehall artiste who is clearly not happy about the 2017 nominations list in a damning tweet labeled the award board members as ‘clowns’ for not nominating him and any of his songs.
Jupitar explained that, although he submitted his best songs which are currently doing well in the UK, however, he is 'missing in action' for some strange reasons
“VGMA board, y’all bunch of idiots and hypocrites, I fucking submitted this time and it was a song that actually won big in U.K. (Clowns ), keep it up,” the musician went berserk.
The artiste recently picked up an award in the UK as the Best African Artiste, at the 2017 Urban Music Awards-Beats with the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Tekno and other African artistes.
With this, Jupita believes should have earned him at least a nomination, where he is beating top African artistes to win big in UK.
The Jupitar is not the only artiste whose music has not been nominated in this year’s awards, the like of EL, Manifest, Medikal, Edem have suffered same.
The VGMAs has seen many controversies over the years, and this year’s doesn’t come as a surprise to many industry players.
