EXCLUSIVE: No venue for RTP Awards 2013 tonight

This year's edition of the Radio and TV

Personality Awards scheduled to take place at

the Accra International Conference Centre on

Thursday December 5 may not come off as


Peacefmonline.com has gathered that the

organizers have failed to pay for the venue and

secure other important things needed for the

show to go on successfully.

Following an allegation made on Peace FM's

"Entertainment Review" last Saturday November

30 by a listener via text message that the venue

had not been booked, Entertainment Review

crew decided to check from management of the

venue to ascertain the truth.

After a meeting with Conference Centre officials,

they disclosed to Peace FM exclusively this

morning that Big Events Ghana, organizers of

the event have not paid for the venue as at

10am this morning even though adverts are still

running on all media platforms (Radio, TV,

Online, and print and social media), that the

awards night is coming off this evening.

All efforts to reach CEO of Big Events Ghana,

Prince Mckay have proven futile.

Meanwhile Mckay, who was present in the studio

during last Saturday's "Entertainment Review"

program, denied the allegation stating

categorically that he has paid for the venue and

that there was no problem at all with the venue


However, Peacefmonline.com is reliably

informed that Empire Entertainment, organizers

of "Back In The Day" Concert which will feature

Grammy Award winning Hip Hop group, Naughty

By Nature, which is coming off tomorrow Friday

December 6 at the same venue, have booked the

place for two days (one day for setup and the

next day for the main event).

This implies that Bola Ray's Empire

Entertainment has secured the venue for both

today and tomorrow for their show.

In a related development, management of

highlife living legend, Abrantie Amakyi Dede who

is the lead act on the tonight says they have not

concluded arrangement with the organizers so

Amakyi Dede may not mount the stage if they

do not hear from the organizers.

Now the big question is… will the RTP Awards

2013 come off tonight as planned and if it will,

where precisely in Accra?
