No song was bigger than ‘One Corner’ in 2017 – Hammer

Renowned Music producer, Hammer, has slammed Charter House, the organizers of Vodafone Ghana Music awards for not awarding Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’ Song of the Year’ at the 2018 edition.

Just like many critics and music lovers, Hammer is convinced that ‘One Corner’s popularity was clear as broad daylight and needed not to have been voted for by the public.

According to a post he made on Facebook, that category should be the preserve of the Board and the Academy.

“How do you vote for the most popular song of the year… Popular means popular period. This should be unanimous by the board and academy… Backed by data from radio stations. You can’t ask people to vote for this! That’s how you end up with the wrong song. Bcos votes can be bought.. just buy loads of credits get your team to embark on Heavy voting. This means you compromise the legitimacy of the awards just for the coins you’ll make from votes,” he wrote.

“NOT FAIR… No song was bigger than one corner in 2017.. why you dey play with ppls struggle and hustle? The boy chop the thing hands down. Stop playing with ppls hard work and emotions. NOT COOL,” Hammer added.

Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’ and some songs from other artistes lost out to Fancy Gadam’s ‘Total Cheat’ in the Song of the Year category at the recently held VGMAs.

Patapaa, who is not happy with the award has said he believes the organizers were bribed by Fancy Gadam to win that award.

According to the category definition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, “the Song of the Year is the song nominated SOLELY BY THE PUBLIC and adjudged by Academy, Board and General Public as the most popular song released in the year under review. The song must have enjoyed a lot of patronage and generated the most excitement during the year.”

The Board has 30% voting power, the Academy 30% and the remainder 40% is reserved for the general public.

The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2018 was held at the Accra International Conference Centre on 14th April, 2018.

I Didn’t Call Davido For Our Collaboration – Kidi Tells Story

Real name, David Nana Dwamena but known in the music industry as Kidi, he was on Youtube’s show Enter chat to talk music and his personal life.

When the host, Fresh Boy Papa Jay asked him about his “odo remix” which features Nigeria’s Mayourkun and Davido, the Lynx Entertainment signee said that he didn’t personally call to invite singer, Davido to sing on the track.

He narrated that, Mayorkun was on a tour in Ghana when he released the original “Odo” single. He continued that, Mayorkun called and praised him because he liked the song himself. He further divulged that Mayourkun loved the song when he heard it constantly on radio, TV club and many other places so he requested for a remix.

Kidi continued saying that, he thought it had ended there until he was told by Mayorkun that he has shown the song to Davido who liked it as soon as he heard it.

“Because it has a resemblance of his hit track “if”, the line “30 billion” caught his ear and showed so much interest in the song.

I was there one day when we had a call from mayorkun to check my mail”, he said. He said that he checked his mail and it was Davido verse of the “Odo” track. It actually came as a real surprise because I never thought of landing a singer like Davido on my track that quick but boom it had happened.” he told show host.

Most Ghanaian Artistes Visit ‘Juju’ For Hit Songs – eShun Reveals

Sensational soul singer, eShun has revealed in an interview on Okay FM that most Ghanaian musicians seek spiritual backing or better still ‘juju‘ to fuel their popularity in the music industry.

The Quophimens signed act recounted how a traditional priest approached her with an offer to back her career spiritually, so she can finally release a hit song like the others.

Unfortunately, she refused to mention names of colleague musicians who have consulted the traditional priest in question for spiritual support as revealed to her by the priest.

“I can’t mention names. However, he mentioned some of my colleagues. Some of these musicians are making hit songs because they have spiritual backings”, she said.

However, eshun posited that she’s not bothered by the fact that she has not made it big in Ghana music industry despite the concern expressed by her loyal fans.

“It is a process, everyone needs to go through it. It doesn’t bother me at all”, she stated.

Recall that gospel musician Adu Patrick once said that about 70% of Ghanaian gospel artistes rely on “juju” to back up their career. Besides, rapper Tinny, as well as Flowking Stone, have all shared similar sentiment sometime ago.

Therefore, what eShun is saying has an element of truth and validity.
