Organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), Charterhouse, has hit back at popular gospel musician, Patience Nyarko for defaming their brand.
According to the Head of Communication at Charterhouse, George Quaye, the barrage of accusations and discrediting comments made by Patience Nyarko are bogus and unfounded.
The gospel artiste who recently spoke on Accra-based Power FM, alleged that she was robbed of an award at the recent edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
The musician in her radio interview, alleged that the popular Atinka television programme, ‘Di Asa’ was more credible than Charterhouse’s award scheme.
The angry musician added that, in the past, she did not talk about her loss because she thought she was becoming better by the day and hoped her hit song, ‘Obi nnyane me’ would win an award.
But George Quaye in a response, told Mikki Osei Berko on TV3, that the gospel artiste devaluing the award scheme was her own opinion and that she should be considered by the organizers of the Mentor Reality show.
“It’s her opinion… I didn’t know Patience Nyarko was interested in participating in Mentor, maybe TV3 should consider putting her on and I’m sure she would make a good contestant,” George Quaye told Mikki Osei Berko.
Patience Nyarko’s popular song, ‘Obi nnyane me’ which was nominated to the best gospel song of the year category lost to Joe Mettle’s ‘Boo noni’ at the 19th edition of the event.
She also did not win the Gospel Artiste of the year award.
