After honouring Patapaa Most Popular Song of The Year on April 21, Huawei Ghana has said they will be rewarding several other musicians for a good job done despite their loss at the recently held Ghana Music Awards.
Speaking to Zionfelix on Radio Univers’ Brunch2Lunch entertainment show, the Marketing Manager for Huawei Ghana, Dennis Laryea disclosed that his outfit believes in creative persons so has decided to encourage them. He continued that Patapaa’s award presented to him at the Music Magic Comedy (MMC) event held at the National Theatre was the first of the several awards they will be giving to entertainers in the coming days.
When asked why they honoured only Patapaa leaving King Promise and Kumi Guitar and other musician who also had several nominations at the 19th edition of VGMAs but walked home with nothing, Mr. Laryea replied Zionfelix, host of the mid-morning show that plans are far advanced to give the ‘Selfish’ singer an award due to his good works as an artiste.
“We would embark on this activity to recognise creative people who have done a lot but are not being rewarded. What we did with Patapaa is jus the first of the many we will be doing in the coming days and I think Ghanaians are welcoming it. Fortunately on that night we honoured Patapaa, we had King Promise performing so we had a long chat and I believe he will also be having his soon.” Dennies Laryea stated.
Explaining why the ‘One Corner’ hitmaker was surprised with the Most Popular Song Of The Year honoury award, Dennis Laryea revealed that “We are all aware that Patapaa did a good job last year. We feel his song went very far. Huawei works with a lot of Chinese and they all love the song One Corner so to motivate him, we felt like doing this for him to know that Ghanaians appreciate his talent.”
The Marketing Manager who was not willing to disclose items given to the musician only said Patapaa was presented a latest Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 phone adding that other products “are between the musician and our company.”
