VGMA Explains why Kofi Kinaata Confession was placed in HIGHLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR plus the full official list of nominees for the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
After the release of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) 2017 nominees list, many especially in the entertainment industry criticized the VGMA board for their selection in some categories and reasons why some artistes didn’t make it to the list.
The most talked about selections or categories were AMG act Medikal in the “Artiste o the year” and Kofi Kinaata “confession” in HIGHLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR rather than HIPLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR and SWEETIE PIE in HIPLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR rather than HIGHLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR.
Speaking to Gerry Gee on SUNSET ENTERTAINMENT on metro 90.5 FM sunyani The PRO and executive member of the VGMA BOARD Mr Hammond said Ghanaians are too quick to judge rather than finding out answers to their questions and critics. He explain that “confession” by Kofi Kinaata was nominated in HIGHLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR and SWEETIE PIE in HIPLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR because comparing the two songs “sweetie pie” song had little of singing and more of rapping which qualifies “sweetie pie” to be in HIPLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR. He again explain that “confession” was place in HIGHLIFE SONG OF THE YEAR because on confession track Kinaata did more singing than rap in other words confession had more singing than rap.
He assured the General public that the board is working hard to make the awards show credible and free from favoritism. The VGMA board and himself are always ready to answer any question that borders your mind with regards to the selections and categories.
Nominees and the board are expected to be in SUNYANI for this year nominees jams.
