HipLife artiste Edem (@iamedem) has described the most popular song category in the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards as “bogus”.
The ‘Nyedzilo’ hitmaker made the remarks in an interview with The Zone host Naa Ashorkor and Entertainment Anchor, Aj Sapong Tuesday.
When asked who he thought would win the category, Edem replied, “I will urge Charter house to take this particular category off, how are they trying to determine…is it by hearing it at pubs?.
“Because we don’t have pubs that login for you to know how many times the song was played, we should be realistic about it because we don’t have the structures.
“We should find things that are realistic because if I stay in James Town, the most popular song might be Nii Funny’s record because that is my territory and for someone in Legon it might be ‘MI Naa Bo Po’ by E.L, and so there’s no way you can tell that person ‘Ekiiki mi’ is better…so for me the category is bogus,” he said.
This year’s nominees for the most popular song of the year are Mi Naa Bo Po (E.L), Skolom (VVIP), Susuka (Kofi Kinaata), Ye wo krom (Atom), (Ekii Ki Mi) Wisa, (Aporsor) Nicholas Omani Acheampong, (G0 Higher) Stone Bwoy and (Mansa) Bisa Kdei.
