Ghanaian popular hip life artiste, Patapaa Amisty states unequivocally that he has no plans in place to take part in the 2021 edition of the Ghanaian most patronized awards scheme, the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
The “One Corner” hitmaker declared this openly, following his defeat in the 2018 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in the ppopular song of the year. He was defeated by Fancy Gadam, the Northern music ruler, using his total cheat song featuring Sarkodie.
“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 explained.
He also registered his displeasure regarding the denigration by the African Dancehall King, Shatta Wale in his banter with Yaa Pono
“I was very shocked when I was labeled 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.
