Over the years, Ghanaian musicians never seize to talk ill about Vodafone Ghana Music Awards provided they fail to win their respective categories. Similarly, Article Wan, Afro-pop artiste, has shared his frustrations over the awards ceremony after his failure to pick a single award from three nominations.
Known for his hit song ‘Solo,’ Article Wan was nominated for the Best New Artiste, Afro-Pop Song and Most Popular Song categories. Speaking in an interview with 3FM’s DJ Enkay, Article Wan said he is yet to come to terms with what actually happened at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
He also felt bad that Medikal with his Too Ricky as well as Solo that dominated the music scene in 2016 could not make an impact at the awards.
“I didn’t really feel bad but the truth is, I felt a bit like ‘what’s happening?’ because the whole of last year, not that they didn’t know, they know, they know what we did. The effort we put on stages wherever we were. Charley we disturbed everywhere. “Let me talk about my brother too, Medikal. The whole of last year was about ‘Solo’ and Medikal. And then for a whole national award to go down, we getting nominations- more than two- and then we getting nothing, we felt some way,” he said.
Article Wan said he believes there was a problem with how the awards ceremony went. Well, let’s hope the VGMA board consider the concerns of the musicians and improve upon it next year.
