Popular Ghanaian highlife musician, Ex Doe has told Organizers of Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA) what to do if they want Ghanaians to stop questioning the credibility of their award scheme.
VGMA is known to be the only recognized award festival held annually to honour the craft of musicians who works harder and produce good songs to entertain fans and music enthusiasts.
However, as each year passes, we keep questioning the credibility of the award scheme simply because the awards are not given to the deserved parties. Kuami Eugene recently won the ‘Artist Of The Year’ award ahead of Sarkodie who was already tipped by most Ghanaians.
Speaking about this in an interview with Mona Gucci, Ex Doe said Charterhouse and VGMA lost their credibility the very day they introduced voting into the scheme.
According to him, during his era, the organizers looked out for musicians who have worked harder and award them to boost his energy level to do more unlike these days that artists buy credit for their fans to vote even though they did nothing better under the year of review.
The ‘Davi Medekuku’ hitmaker suggested that if VGMA wants to be credible and win the heart of Ghanaians, they should cancel the voting aspect and do justice to the musicians.
He, however, explain that since showbiz these days is all about business, they can still maintain the voting aspect but it shouldn’t be on a higher demand as we see and believe.
