Fancy Gadam winning the Most Popular Song of the Year generated lots of brouhaha at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards as many widely tipped One Corner hitmaker, Patapaa to carry the day.
Ghanaian rapper, M.anifest has added his voice to the ongoing debate by insisting that it was wrong and unfair for the award organizers to have left the final decision entirely to the general public.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, M.anifest said he knows the objective of the voting system but still finds it inappropriate because he believes people with money could easily sway the outcome of the votes.
I get the idea behind the votes but I think it’s flawed. I would change it if I were in control. It becomes an election so the one with money win.
If you think about the awards, you will face the stark reality that might not change your life or financial position or certain things that will make you grow your fan base.
