CAF Awards Ghana Snub: Booking Agency Blames Nigerian Organizers

The booking agency for Ghanaian artistes at the just ended CAF Awards has blamed the Nigerian organizers for the way the Ghanaian artistes were treated at the ceremony.

BookMe World Agency’s Gregory Ankrah said his company did no wrong and that things did not go as planned because the Nigerian organizers did not stay on schedule.

“At the awards, even the person who was sharing the water was Nigerian. So many things went wrong on the show,” he told Showbiz A to Z host, Naa Ashorkor.

There has been a public uproar over how Ghanaian artistes were almost neglected at the event which was held on January 4, 2018.

Singer Efya sang the national anthem and while dancehall artiste Shatta Wale was billed to perform, he was unable to, because he was not allowed to do simple sound checks.

Another Ghanaian artiste, Kidi virtually performed to empty seats after the event was over and everyone was filing out.

Gabby Otchere-Darko Describes CAF Awards Snubbing Ghanaian Acts As ‘Pathetic’ & ‘Disrespectful’

Legal practitioner , Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has joined voiced with many Ghanaians to  slam the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for holding an awards ceremony in  Accra, and snubbing Ghanaian artists for Nigerian stars.

He posted his views on social media,  describing CAF’s actions as ‘pathetic’ and mocking Wizkid’s dressing to the program.

“Almost a perfect programme at the CAF Awards soiled by lack of local content. But, why, they couldn’t find any Ghanaian musician? Pathetic!.” he said.

“CAF was very disrespectful of Ghana tonight by putting up performances from artistes across the continent, including several from Nigeria, and not a single one from Ghana was good enough to be on stage here in Accra? Shocking and, in fact, embarrassing for CAF.

“Instead of treating us to some good Ghanaian performances, as well, CAF decided to populate the stage with Naija ones plus others, including a Nigerian artiste who was dressed as if he lost his way to the gym. I hear he is called Wizkid,” he added.
