With just a few days left to the second edition of the Ghana DJ Awards 2014, the Awards Jury has withdrawn the nomination of DJ Perfekt.
According to a statement released by the Awards Jury, the decision to revoke the nomination was due to “accusations of placement error”.
DJ Perfekt, known in real life as Henry Ofori Nyarko, had called on the organizers of the annual Ghana DJ Awards to drop his name from the awards’ nominations stating, he does not deserve any nomination.
He was nominated in the ‘Artiste DJ of the Year’ category of the awards which awards excellence in the Disc Jockey profession in Ghana. DJ Perfekt was nominated for playing for dancehall artiste, Samini.
Also in the ‘Artiste DJ of the Year’ category are DJ Toyoo (Tic Tac), DJ Mynor (R2Bess), DJ Mensa (Sarkodie), DJ Carlos (VIP), and DJ Godday (Edem).
DJ Perfekt said on the Airtel Entertainment News on Drive Time on Joy FM, organizers of the awards, Mercury Republic, have gravely erred in nominating him in the awards.
“So far as I am concerned, I don’t remember the last time I played for the artiste that I am nominated [for] – that is Samini,” he said and added that, the last time he played for Samini was about four years ago.
After a meeting by the Ghana DJ Awards Jury, they arrived at the decision to revoke DJ Perfekt’s nomination last Saturday.
Mr Kofi Dixon, a member of the Ghana DJ Awards jury said in the statement that: “After checks we have identified that Perfekt’s nomination was an error.”
“No other DJ will be nominated in his place,” the statement added.
