Mainstream Ghanaian artiste, Patapaa Amisty, has said he won’t be available for the 2021 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
Patapaa has not gotten over the choice of the coordinators of the award to neglect his ‘One Corner’ hit tune for the Most Popular Song of the Year at the 2018 VGMA.
As per Patapaa, he would not be essential for the honors soon till Charterhouse, coordinators of the awards change the methodology of granting flourishing artists.
“I’m still not happy about the disappointment back in 2018 after my ‘One Corner’ hit song failed to win an award despite its positive impact on the global stage.
“I have decided not to partake in the awards scheme but I wish them well and urge them to do the right things,’’ he said.
Patapaa was also unhappy over recent comments by Shatta Wale who sarcastically labeled him as an underground artiste.
“I was very shocked when I was labeled an underground artiste considering my impressive records.
“My songs are played globally and have appeared on some big international platforms with some American musicians like Chris Brown dancing to it and for me, no musician in Ghana can match this record,” he said.
