One of Ghana’s controversial movie directors, Socrate Sarfo,has added his opinion to the brewing controversies that have started after the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards .
The director plus producer said all the nominees for the Artiste of the Year category were less deserving and that even the ultimate winner, the late Ebony Reigns, didn’t deserve it.
In an interview with TV Africa’s entertainment desk reporter, Araba Aggrey, the Director of Creative Arts, responsible for Programmes & Projects at the Commission for National Culture stated that the highly animated and energetic Tamale based artiste, Fancy Gadam was his pick for the category of artiste of the year – per the definition of the category – and not the much touted, highly anticipated and eventual winner, the late Ebony Reigns.
“I think that even somebody like Fancy Gadam was robbed of one key category which is the artist of the year. Per the definition of artist of the year… if you look at the definition, Fancy Gadam stands poles apart from all the nominees there,” Mr. Safo said.
Socrate Safo continued that the Northern Region based artiste did massively well under the year in review.
“Can you pin point any of the nominees there including the ultimate winner, Ebony who did half of what he [Fancy Gadam] did?” He quizzed.
However, Socrate Safo also said though Charter House is receiving a lot of criticisms, it was normal of any event.
“I think the VGMA is a good concept and it has its own challenges like any award scheme the world over; so its normal when in Ghana we have our VGMA’s and people are not happy, but in the end we are all winners.
The 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards came off in grand style at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC) , Saturday April 14.
The event which was the 19th edition of the award scheme was under the theme, “Our Music Beyond Borders.” Recognised as the biggest night in Ghana's music industry, the night awarded musicians who have excelled in their careers over the past year.
