Blakk Rasta has tagged VGMA as a useless award.
He made this remark when defending Dr UN during an interview with Ghanaweb.
According to him, Dr UN’s award is better than the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
The Ghanaian musician cum media personality further disclosed that Dr UN was his mate at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
“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.
Some Ghanaian celebrities were tricked to accept Dr UN’s Global Blueprint Excellence Awards a few years ago.
