Ras Kuuku, one of the hottest Reggae Dancehall artist in Ghana has displayed his disappointment with the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) board for not nominating his Reggae song “Father”.
Speaking to Ras Kuuku after the release of the nominations, he said
“I don’t know why they did not nominate my song Father, my team Puom Music got a call from Chatter House few days to the release of the nomination list, but we never heard from them again.
My song was on Metro TV, UTV ,Crystal TV, Fiesta TV among others. It received constant airplay on all radio stations in Ghana including YFM, Pluzz FM, Happy FMm , Rite FM, JEM FM but yet the board did not nominate my song which the lyrical content had no slackness in it compared to other songs they nominated."
He further laments that, "It’s so sad when you work hard throughout the year and some people just want to shut you down.
Not everyone can take this, unless the clean hearted and clean minded, that’s why over the years you have artist unleashing insults on the board.
VGMA should step up their game in terms of research. I am sure none of the board members was at the Ghana Music Week Festival which was held at the stadium just last week; they would have heard the whole stadium singing along my song Father."
According to Ras Kuuku, the VGMA, "discriminate Rasta but they play Bob Marley songs and sing along. That makes them look like a clown. There is always war between the good and evil but the good will always conquer the evil, the truth will always come out and the truth is one.
Whoever knows the truth and doesn’t do it to him, it’s a curse says the scriptures; so to me, I say their bad deeds will judge them – 6 feet."
