The third edition of Bass Awards came off yesterday at the National theater recording a very low turnout plus security issues.
Bass awards is currently the only award scheme dedicated to reggae and dancehall music in Ghana yet lovers of both genres failed to show up for the event.
Most nominees like Iwan, Stonebwoy, Samini, Kill Beat, Sarkodie, Master Garzy, Wutah Kobby and others weren’t present either to receive a plaque or to support the event.
In their quest to save the show organizers opened free gate at a point but to no avail.
Though production was 50% on point some patrons said the event flopped because it was on a working day (Wednesday).
Aside low patronage this year, the show also faced security problems. There were no security personnel at the gate and in the auditorium.
Fans for some artists were running on chairs and speakers to see them perform. Others even getting on stage, but there were no security personnel to keep this in check.
