Hiplife artiste Edem has asked the organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) to expand the scope of the laurels to cover artistes across the length and breadth of the country and not just those based in Accra.
According to Edem, it is unfair for the organisers to focus on Accra-based artistes.
Speaking on the Class Drive on Class91.3FM, Edem said: “Kofi Kinaata might be big in Takoradi and that will be his stronghold and his base, Strongman has a huge fan base in Kumasi than some artistes in Accra, but if you want to use Accra as the predominant space then you are not being fair to Strongman, Fancy Gadam, Macasio or Wiyaala. It’s Ghana Music Awards so we have to look at it historically.”
“They said the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is 20 years and they said it is Ghana Music Awards, so, I think that after 20 years, we should get to a level where we embrace all demographics,” the award-winning artiste stated.
