Ghanaian Gospel musician Joyce Blessing has denied accusations that she paid GHC 15,000 to organizers of Ghana DJs Awards to grab the DJs’ Song of the Year Award at the awards ceremony which took place on Saturday February 21 2015 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Entertainment pundit, Mr. Logic speaking on Pluzz Fm alleged that the organizers requested GHC 15,000 from the management of new dancehall artiste, Vibrant Faya—and promised to award them with the DJs’ Song of the Year category—but according to him, the said category was rather awarded to Joyce Blessing after the management of Vibrant Faya refused to pay the proposed GHC 15,000.
“He [Mercury Quaye] requested 15,000 from the team and because we didn’t pay he gave the award to Joyce Blessing. He also requested we pay for the lights Vybrant Faya will use to perform. If Joyce and her management are listening, that award doesn’t belong to them.”
However, Joyce Blessing reacting to the accusations told GhanaCelebrities.Com’s Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku via a phone interview saying;
“Hahaha…then I got a lot of cash to buy such award,” she said.
“There is no truth in that, nothing of that sort happened. I was not even in Ghana on the awards night, I was in London and someone received that award on my behalf.”
Joyce Blessing stated that she is unperturbed, when people come out with false accusations like this.
“I am not troubled at all; issues like this will even motivate me to work hard. It is all about working hard. And if you believe in yourself, you can surely make.
Joyce hinted of an upcoming album that she is working on—so her fans should watch out for it.
Joyce Blessing won the DJs’ Song of the Year with her Monko Mo Akyi track.
