On Friday, March 15, the nominees list for this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) was released by chaterhouse which got the masses talking on who should have been in the list as well as who did not deserve.
Eugene Baah, popularly known as Choirmaster, a member of music group, Praye, via his social media handles has gone hard on the organizers of the award as he believed strongly, that thye group should have been at least nominated in the “Best Group Of The Year” category.
“This is not the first time Charterhouse is doing this to Praye because they always break our hearts when expectations are high.
“I quite remember in 2008 when Praye’s music was ruling the airwaves and Angelina and other songs were quite big, Charterhouse cheated us by giving Artiste of the Year to Okyeame Kwame.
“It broke our hearts and we nearly gave up on music but we encouraged ourselves and moved on. I have observed that has been their way and I’m surprised after holding this event for 20 years, they haven’t changed their fake awards scheme,” He revealed in an interview with Showbiz..
“They know we are back and Praye as always is a force to reckon with that was why they appealed to us to perform last year.
“Besides, we performed at a number of big events including EIB Concert, YFM Area Code, Decemba 2Rememba, Adom TV Carols Festival, Olams End of Year party, Odwira Festival, Kwahu Bliss on the Hills, Grand finale of TV3’s Ghana’s Most Beautiful and a number of Christmas and New Year parties I can’t mention here.
“I doubt if Ghanaians even know some names in the Group of the Year category, talk less of their music. VGMA is 20 years so let’s support and promote good music,” He added.
According to Choirmaster, Charterhouse begged them to perform last year because they believed so much in their brand, more reasons why they are disappointed.
