Rising quickly King Paluta, a rapper from Ghana, said that the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) should consider honoring singers from Kumasi and giving them the awards they deserve.
The “Yahitte” and “Sika Aba Fie” singers said that award shows, including the VGMA, have ignored artists from Kumasi for a long time and that it’s time they treated them equally and fairly.
In an interview watched by Dehotpress.com, he complained that some Ghanaians don’t respect singers from Kumasi. He told TV XYZ, “When an artist from Accra comes here, they are called a Ghanaian artist, but when an artist from Kumasi comes here, you call them Oseikrom artists.” What is it? It’s really bad.
“That means you should give us the VGMA and other prizes.” “Because we are working hard too,” he said.
According to King Paluta, these Kumasi artists can probably do better than the so-called singers from Accra if everyone has the same chance. This is because most of them work hard at their craft.
“Artists from Kumasi work harder than most artists from Accra,” he said.
King Paluta said, “If the business treats all of us equally, some of us (Kumasi artists) could be the ones to fill the O2 arena.”
