Kumawood actor Kwadwo Nkansah Lil Win, has waded into the controversy surrounding the crowning of Kuami Eugene as the Artiste of the Year at the just-ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
He says Kuami Eugene really deserves the prestigious award, and that those criticising him are merely envious of him.
To Lil Win, Kuami Eugene even deserves “Artiste of the World”, urging the Rockstar, as Kuami Eugene is called, to ignore the critics.
Lil Win reportedly tweeted: “Please my bars on this #Kumerica can also win Artist of the Year VGMA 22……Or they will say I don’t deserve…..kwasiakwa if it’s yours come for it ….. congrats @KuamiEugene You deserve Artist of the World mpo. Come for a kumerican Passport #wezzyempire.”.
He is the latest to add his voice to the issue as industry players including Guru and Maame Serwaa have said that Kuami Eugene does not deserve that award.
They are of the view that Sarkodie deserves that award and not Kuami Eugene.
Maame Serwaa, for instance, said it would be senseless for anyone to take VGMA seriously from today due to the outcome of the event.
However, some Ghanaians have criticised her over her comment describing it as unfortunate.
In a related development, a man by the name Dan Lartey who betted with his hair that he would shave everything if Sarkodie should lose has done just that.
In a report by YEN.com.gh, a photo of the man with ‘santo’ and without his former long beard was published.
