Hip-hop artiste, Maccasio has urged Charterhouse to look beyond Accra and Kumasi for more talent in an effort to bring diversity to the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
The Tamale-based musician did relatively well under the year in review but surprisingly his name didn’t make the final cut for the 2018 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
And instead of bashing the organizers for his omission like some musicians do, the Dagomba Girl hitmaker made some great suggestions aimed at improving the award scheme.
“I want to congratulate all the nominees for the 19th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards especially Fancy Gadam. Indeed, their hard work and determination earned them all the nod they have had.
I want to also congratulate Charterhouse and the entire board for the efforts in ensuring a fair nominees list. It would only take a great crack to come up with such list.
Also, inasmuch as I believe this year’s nominees list is fair, I want to make a clarion call on the board and the organisers to embrace diversity in the awards scheme.
I strongly believe there are great talents outside Accra and Kumasi and a little recognition from the board can shoot them up. I know the diversity I am calling for won’t be achieved within 24 hours but a little effort will do.
And to all my ’69’ fans and ZOLA Music record label soldiers who have been pushing for my nomination(s) this year, I want to say a BIG thank you for the support. All hope is not lost. We can find our way through very soon.
Remember that ‘The Smock Show’ is happening on March 31st. Let’s make history again. Let’s fill up the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium! I love you all!!!
