Flippant Charter House will kill Ghana music industry- Kofi B

High-life musician who stays true to the

rudiments of the genre, Kofi Boakye Yiadom,

known in showbiz as Kofi B, has descended

heavily on Charter House, organizers of the

annual Ghana Music Awards, describing them as

full of dishonesty.

Zionfelix.com has spoken to some artistes who

are not happy about this year's nominees for

Ghana Music Awards.

According to Kofi B, Charter House has for the

past years exhibited unfairness and

incompetence. He said they as an organization

has lost direction and credibility in organizing

awards for musicians in Ghana. The 'Akua Attaa'

hitmaker stated clearly in an interview with Ashh

Entertainment Zone that, he doesn't need any

award from Charter House.

When asked by the host of the show, Nana

Amoako as to why the "Bantama Kwasi Boakye''

song was not nominated by the VGMA board,

Kofi B disclosed that per the laid down

procedures of Charter House, his song was late

to fall in the Hi-life category.

"They have a time period within which they

select their songs from and to them mine does

not fall within so I guess they will nominate it next year"

"But I don't need them in any way because of

their dishonesty, hypocrisy and unfair treatment

towards some of us. Some of us don't work for

awards, we are doing music just to promote our

culture and entertain our fans, that's all," he added.

Kofi B who was pathetic about the modus

operandi of Charter House revealed that the

VGMA board since they started the awards has

never nominated him and for that matter he

thinks they are bias and incompetent.

"When I released 'Koforidua flowers' and 'Akua

Attaa', the songs were hit all over, but did

Charter House nominate them?'' He questioned.

"When you look at the kind of music they have

nominated for the awards is very sad; songs like

Tonga and others, are they good music than

mine ? I mean Charter House is a flippant entity,

they are confused and if we don't take care they

will kill our industry."
