“Maccasio couldn’t win vgma because he didn’t involve me in the nomination”- Tamale Chief
Glorious and thankful the whole north was when Fancy Gadam, one of their young talents won multiple awards at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards some years ago.
After this awards, speculations came out later stating that, these awards were not won on merit but through lobbying and underground dealings.
The youth/entertainment chief (Diema Naa) of Tamale was heard on audio stating that any music artist who file for VGMA through him will get nominated and win the award they are nominated in.
This information was still under scrutiny until on Monday 29th of March 2021, during an interview on MightFm 90.5mhz with Teacher Onga, Diema disclosed that, Maccasio, a close rival to Fancy Gadam in the music industry, could not win the award after he was nominated because he didn’t file for the award through him.
This statements by the Chief puts the credibility of VGMA at stake.
It is also a revelation to prove that the speculations surrounding the award scheme as not credible is true.
