The Public Relations Officer of Charterhouse, George Quaye says he is ready to put his car on the line for all those who doubt the results of the winner of the song of the year to prove that they voted for Patapaa’s “One Corner”.
In an interview on GBC Uniiq Breakfast Drive on Uniiq 95.7, George challenged host Cecil Obodai Wentum to prove that the votes favoured Patapaa. The latter’s failure to clinch the award for the ‘Most Popular Song’ of the year Category has stirred so much controversy with some suggesting that he has been shortchanged. Some commentaries have even gone ahead to say the winner of the category, Tamale-based Fancy Gaddam did not deserve it.
He stated emphatically that he saw the voting results and stressed that people did not vote.
He, in addition, threw a challenge to the host of the programme, to prove him wrong saying “I can push you to do one thing and if you are able to prove me wrong I can put my car on the line. Go into your offices, starting from this room (studio) and all the rooms to the front, check everyone’s phone if they voted for Patapaa, I bet not a single person voted, prove me wrong and you can have my car.”
Mr. Quaye explained further that Patapaa’s song was not the only popular one. Other songs like Sarkodie’s “Pain Killer”, Joe Mettle’s “Bo no ne”, Fancy Gaddam’s “Total Cheat”, Shatta Wale’s “Taking Over”, Ebony’s “Sponsor”, Kidi’s “Odo” and Kwame Eugene’s “Angela”, as well as Samini’s “My own” and Stonebwoy’s “My Name” were also very Popular.
The just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) which took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday (April 17), saw lots of cheers and tears.
The annual Awards night recognises the works of musicians and producers who have excelled during the year under review.
The event saw late singer Ebony make history by winning the Artiste of the Year.
Apart from that historic win, the event also witnessed some exciting performances from some of Ghana and Africa’s biggest acts.
