Fameye also addressed a previous comment he made on social media, where he expressed regret for not putting the VGMA ahead of the Grammys and other international awards. He explained that he wanted to emphasise the importance of valuing and supporting our own.

Growing up I loved music a lot. I remember how well Ghana Music Awards apealed to me. Seeing the artistes perform and receive the prestigious award resonated with me a lot. I enjoyed it and saw so much value in the award scheme. It's part of the key factors that drove me to do music. Along the way I was swayed by the allure of award schemes like BET and Grammys because we Africans sometimes value Western trends over ours, he said.

Fameye urged his fellow musicians and fans to appreciate the VGMA and the Ghanaian music industry as a whole.

Chris Tsormanah has described the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards as the biggest entertainment award scheme in the country. He said this in a conversation with YEN.com.gh while backing Fameye's stance. He said the award was a prestigious one in its own right.

VGMA might have its own problems, but so does every award scheme. So, Fameye is right about the need to accord respect to the award. Over the years, Ghanaians have watched and enjoyed VGMA nights, and it has quickly become a tradition to look forward to the awards every year. It is only right that Ghanaians keep showing the support they have shown the VGMA over the years. The organizers also have to do their part to maintain the appeal of the awards. With time, it can rock shoulders with international awards. he said.
