VGMA Would Have Collapsed If It Was Run By A Ghanaian – Patience Nyarko



Famous Ghanaian gospel musician, Patience Nyarko, has aligned the success of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) to the nationality of the founder, Iyola Ayoade.

While commending the organisers of the awards ceremony for running the scheme for over two decades, she told Mike 2 on Adom FM’s Entertainment Hall that if the VGMA organisers were Ghanaians, the award scheme wouldn’t have reached its current status.

“Ghana Music Awards has really helped Ghana’s music industry even though they are running their business. Let’s consider the various awards we have, which of them is able to live up to expectation than the VGMAs” she said.

She added that, some people complain that the award ceremony is organised by a Nigerian but the fact is that it would have collapsed long ago if it was organised by a Ghanaian.

In line with this assertion, she wondered what Ghana has been able to successfully execute and sustain.

That notwithstanding, Patience Nyarko expressed her misgivings about the fairness of the awards show, most especially in the selection of award winners.

Furthermore, she claimed her song ‘Obi Nyane Me’ deserved the Most Popular Song of the Year award but didn’t even get any nomination.

“Look at my song, ‘Obi Nyane Me’; it was popular and deserved Most Popular Song of the Year award, but it never happened. But I understand that business people will think about their interests, so it’s okay,” she said.
