After winning Most Popular Song, there is Dobble trouble
Award-winning contemporary highlife group, Dobble, may be officially split as an ugly war of words that erupted between the members on social media proves.
The group won Most Popular Song of the Year at this year's Ghana Music Awards with the song, 'Christy'.
Since late last year, 2016, the group had been on the fringes of collapse. There were speculations in music circles that the group was no more in existence even though none of the members confirmed the rumours.
This, however, became obvious when they no longer attended events as a unit after one member, Paa Kwesi, boycotted all events and told friends privately that he was readying himself for a solo project.
Now Enn Wai, the other member of the group has confirmed that there was indeed bad blood between the duo.
He took to social media to wash the group’s dirty linen in public, accusing Paa Kwesi of treachery. Enn Wai revealed via Facebook that he had been disappointed to discover that his mate had been planning a secret breakaway all along.
The seemingly upset singer also revealed that he had learnt that his former mate had accused him of using voodoo against him [Paa Kwesi].
But the final straw that broke the camel’s back was a perceived shadiness by Paa Kwesi to drag the group into a mess he had created himself at the Ghana Music Awards.
In a burst of anger, Enn Wai called out Paa Kwesi’s duality by pretending to be emotional about the group’s inevitable demise when he had instigated it all in a bid to score cheap points and to cover up his mess.
Pope, the manager of Enn Wai, has since gone on a few media platforms to confirm the situation.
The man, who is the duo’s recognised manager as a unit, revealed that Paa Kwesi had signed in at Charterhouse to receive tickets for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards on behalf of the group but had neither given himself or Enn Wai any of the tickets, nor answered the numerous calls they made to him.
It is not clear how things deteriorated to this point but from all indications, the VGMA Most Popular Song of the Year winners are no longer working mates.
