D-Black made it known to Ghana Music.com that 4Syte TV Music Video Awards is a shame to our industry.
D-Black revealed that he didn’t want to be part of the award from the start but members of the 4Syte Awards organization convinced me on their behalf and promised that it will be organized well.
“Someone or some people called 4Syte TV sit in their homes and create an award show. This is not a national award, this is a privatized award show”, he said.
Before continuing D-Black made mention that from henceforth, 4Syte TV should not nominate him or any of his works at their award shows because Ghana deserves a much better award system.
D-Black also said 4Syte TV failed to bring out the time frame under which a music video falls in for nomination. “My video VERA is 2 months old and you nominate it? Really? EL’s KAALU is 5 weeks old and you nominate it?”
D-Black asked back to back questions as to where is the transparency in voting also? What is the voting system? What percentage does the public receive via voting and the panel also? Why are all these not drawn out for us to know? Why would you use YFM’s short code for your voting text line? Are you serious?
“Look at the Ghana Music Awards. These are all clearly defined. The 4Syte MVA categories don’t even have descriptions”, he said.
D-Black accepted that he won the Best Collaboration Music Video of the Year with Mo’ Cheddah for ‘Falling’ but still stands by his words that Ghana deserves a much better music video award scheme.
