The nominations for the 2017 VGMA’s has some sparked discussions and controversy all over the entertainment landscape.
In one of the most lightweight nominees list ever, it seems this year’s awards would not be the best on record, with even the Artiste of the Year category containing no clear cut winner.
Some artists and their reps are not happy, not only at missing out on the big award but even at the classification of their songs – one such person is Kofi Kinaata’s manager.
Tony Pun cannot fathom why his artiste, who currently has the most trending single around in ‘Confessions’, did not make the artiste of the year nominations list.
Furthermore, Pun is not happy with ‘Confessions’ being placed in the highlife category and other issues to do with the awards.
This led Pun, speaking on Happy Fm, to declare that – “Some of the people on the VGMA Board do not know anything about music,”
According to him, the board should do their jobs well and make sure they do not ‘kill the industry’.
