The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Speech Productions, a music production outfit based in Tema, , has warned the organizers of the Ghana Music Awards (GMA) to desist from any act that seeks to undermine the credibility of the awards scheme this year.
According to him, the organizers, Charter House, should take a critical look at the event once again to correct all the mistakes they made at the previous awards before thinking of organizing another one this year.
In an interview with BEATWAVES over the weekend, the CEO of Speech Productions said the Ghana Music Awards scheme has travelled all these years because some of the stakeholders have criticized the scheme to help shape into what it is today.
‘I’m not saying the awards scheme is bad but there are too many unpardonable errors. Maybe one may think I’m being mischievous but that is far from it, I just want the right thing to be done to keep the scheme running.’
He was of the view that having a number of the stakeholders involved in the awards scheme was a good idea but it appeared that those stakeholders were employed to share part of the blame in order to prevent them from criticizing the awards when things went bad.
who claimed the awards scheme had gone through a lot of problems, some of which had not been resolved, appealed to the organizers to put in place competent personalities who have the skills and credibility to run the scheme to avoid criticisms in the near future.
He also advised that a stakeholder’s forum be organised for all the stakeholders in the music industry to address issues affecting the progress of the awards scheme in order to make the scheme more credible.
