Patapaa appears to be very discontent with the treatment meted out to him by the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) at the 2018 awards night when his song “One Corner” failed to be recognized.
Patapaa Amisty believes he should have won the popular song category with his “One Corner ” track which according to him was a global hit and transcended the shores of Africa.
In an exclusive interview, Patapaa said he still feels cheated and will not involve himself in anything that has to do with VGMA until he is satisfied that organizers of the award ceremony recognize those who deserve to be recognized.
“The idea of awarding musicians is not something bad and the VGMA had been in existence for a very long time.
“I’m still not happy about the disappointment back in 2018 after my ‘One Corner’ hit song failed to win an award despite its positive impact on the global stage. I have decided not to partake in the awards scheme but I wish them well and urge them to do the right things,’’ he told GNA Entertainment.
Patapaa also expressed reservation over a comment by Shatta Wale recently describing him as an underground artiste. According to him, Chris Brown jamming to his song is an achievement any Ghanaian artiste is yet to chalk.
“I was very shocked when I was labelled an underground artiste considering my impressive records.
“My songs are played globally and have appeared on some big international platforms with some American musicians like Chris Brown dancing to it and for me, no musician in Ghana can match this record,” he said.
