VGMA 2019 was like SHS funfair – Blakk Rasta

Ghanaian reggae musician and a radio presenter Blakk Rasta has opined has said, performances on the 20th anniversary of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was no different from Secondary School shows back in the day.

Speaking to host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, the renowned broadcaster noted that, he has seen lots of fun-fairs and entertainment show while in high school and the just ended 20th VGMA performances were no different from them. “Ghanaians will probably insult me for saying this, but I’m not scared of speaking my mind. A lot of the performances was like what I saw in secondary school when I was coming up. The performances were just below standard. Somebody like, King Promise, Sarkodie were just performing like a CEO, people have paid GHS 400.00 to come and watch you and you’re performing like a worm removed from a refrigerator. Is this the performance you want to take to the Grammy? You’re joking. Somebody like KiDi, one of my favourite Highlife artist, has disappointed me. Why should you come and mime? You should tell the organizers you’re not a miming artiste but you came there and played CD for us. If you go to secondary school, that’s what they do”

Blakk Rasta, however, commended songstress Efya, Samini and Medikal for putting up an outstanding and energetic performance on the night.

He urged Ghanaian artistes to be more proactive and work on their craft while on stage.

Shatta wasn’t going on stage to congratulate Stonebwoy – Blakk Rasta

Shatta Wale wasn’t going on stage to congratulate Stonebwoy – Blakk Rasta

Ghanaian reggae musician and a radio presenter Blakk Rasta has opined that, Shatta Wale had a different motive going on stage and not to congratulate Stonebwoy.

He told host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa that, Shatta Wale promised to cause commotion at the 20th VGMA if things do not go his way and that is exactly what he did.
“Well, for me, from where I sat and what I saw on TV, there was nothing like he was going to congratulate anybody, Call a spade a spade. Before they play the nominees video, look at how he face was. You know, he promised that, if things do not go they way he wants, he will repeat what he did in 2013 and that’s exactly what he did. I don’t think he was going there to fight no, he was going there to create a scene and Stonebwoy to brandished a gun on stage because he sensed danger”

Blakk Rasta suggested that Charter House should ban the two Artistes for two years for bringing disgrace to the scheme and also serve as a deterrent to other Artistes.

At the 20th anniversary of VGMA, a brawl erupted between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale camps on stage after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’, at the VGMA on Sunday which caused the former to pull out a gun.

Stonebwoy charged for displaying firearms in public

Dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla, known in showbiz circles as Stonebwoy has been charged in court for displaying firearms in public without permission from the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

He has subsequently pleaded not guilty to the charge when the case was presented at the Adjaben Magistrate Court in Accra Wednesday morning.

In addition to that, he is facing another charge of threatening the public peace, which he has been charged together with Shatta Wale.

According to Graphic Online’s court reporter Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson, the Adjaben District Court has since admitted the two Reggae and Dancehall artistes, to bail in the sum of Gh?50,000 each with one surety.

The two arch musical rivals were admitted to bail after they pleaded not guilty to threatening the public peace in relation to their infamous altercation that nearly marred the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) organised last Saturday.

Lawyers for the two prayed the court to grant their clients a self-recognisance bail, but the court, presided over by Mr Isaac Addo, refused their prayer and granted them bail with sureties attached.

Hearing continues on June 20, 2019.
