The VGMA Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is useless according to celebrated Ghanaian Reggae presenter and musician Blakk Rasta.
The award-winning broadcaster has never hidden his anger at the organizers of the awards following some of their actions he believes are not fair to musicians.
According to Blakk Rasta, Dr. UN’s award which is considered a scam by some sections of Ghanaians is better than the VGMA awards.
During an interview, he mentioned that VGMA is useless because they sell their awards to the highest bidder.
He continued that at least Dr. UN didn’t ask the public to vote but rather he gave out his awards to hardworking and deserving Ghanaians who have done very well in their fields.
“His awards will even be better than the VGMA which is a useless award. This VGMA is a useless award because people are voting. They are buying votes and that is corrupt… Dr. UN was asked why he didn’t nominate me and he said Blakk Rasta was bigger than my awards…the point is this when VGMA is making their awards, you have to vote. When you vote, they give it to the highest bidder, the one who votes more.
“They are not even ashamed of it, they will ask you, ‘did you vote?’. You didn’t win and you are crying. So did you buy the awards? Dr. UN didn’t do that, he just pinpointed people in the society he felt with his panelist that these people deserved this award and they awarded them, that is how an award system should go…I will prefer Dr. UN’s award to VGMA any day,” Blakk Rasta stated.
