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."
