Ghanaian artiste manager and entertainment pundit, Nana Poku Ashis, has made a call for the organizers of the Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) to make certain changes.

In his recent interview with Graphic Showbiz, he called for the Artiste of the Year to be solely decided by the public through voting.

For now, the Artiste of the Year at the Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) is adjudged by the Academy, Board and the General Public as the Artiste(s) with the highest audience appeal and popularity. The Artiste(s) must have released a hit single/album during the year under review.

He thinks the public sorely voting will be helpful.

“The Artiste of the Year should be left to the public. I strongly think if they want to be very fair, they should pull out the academy, pull out the board from voting, because it’s a populist award.

“Same with the Song of the Year, we all know, it is the public that actually know which particular song was the biggest hit in the year under review. But then when the technicalities come to add up to it, it takes it from who was actually supposed to win. Once they say it’s a populist award, they should leave that overall artiste and most popular song of the year to the public to vote,” Ashis said.

He also wished for periodic changes to the board and academy membership.

“I think they should change people on the board from time to time. Some of these people have been there for too long, and they’ve written the same notes over and over again. It’s not refreshing. It’s about time they bring in new people with new ideas.

“The young generation is different. See, some of our old people do not understand what is going on now with the younger generation and the trends of music they are doing. So if you keep the same people on the board for too long, you’ll be frustrating most of new crop of artistes and the kind of productions they bring out,” Nana Poku Ashis stated.
