Organisers of the popular Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) have advised musicians to stop the needless complaints about not receiving an award at last year’s event in categories they were nominated for.
That they should rather lure their fans to vote for them because the award is purely based on popular votes.
According to her, the award scheme is very transparent to the extent that the organizers of the event do not know who wins until it is announced at the event.
“Over the years we’ve been educating people a lot so I think people have a fair understanding of how it works. It’s not about few people sitting down to say let’s give to this and the other to that. No no, no … it’s about getting your fans to vote when nominations are put up,” Theresa Ayadele said.
“At the night of the event whoever emerges the winner is based on the competition of all three voting block and it like we’ve said that over and over again,” she added.
“I remember last year or two years ago Fancy Gadam won Popular Song of the Year and a lot of people were surprised by then. We didn’t have to say anything the fans voted. Fancy Gadam had a huge army of fans and they supported their artiste and they voted and so he won,” she emphasised.
Theresa Ayadele added that instead of complaining they should have faith in their fans with the hope that they will vote for them.
