Television personality, Nana Aba Anamoah has finally responded to the break in transmission of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards when she came on stage to present an award.
There was a break in transmission when Nana Aba Anamoah of Gh One TV was on stage to present an award in the company of Trace Africa’s Manager. Nana Aba Anamoah took the opportunity to ask why Ghanaian artistes are not given space on their platform to shine.
However, there was a break in transmission when the question was going to be answered. This courted social Media uproar for TV 3 with a section of social media users indicating that it was a deliberate attempt to prevent Nana Aba Anamoah who is a former worker of the Television station from taking the shine of the day.
However, TV3 has apologised for the hitch.
Responding to the challenge, Nana Aba Anamoah called on Ghanaians to channel their energy in getting the International television networks to feature Ghanaian music videos on their networks.
According to her, the successful VGMA is an indication that music in Ghana has matured and needs to be given the needed attention.
She said “I’m greatly concerned about the inadequate airtime given to Ghanaian musicians who work tirelessly to entertain music lovers. I appreciate @tracenaija’s commitment to change the narrative. The success of this year’s VGMA is a testimony to the seriousness of the Ghanaian music industry. I only noticed the ‘shove’ when the video was circulated. I deeply appreciate the concern of well wishers who weren’t enthused by it. I’m confident that the public uproar has sufficiently dealt with the matter. Let us now channel our energies into prevailing upon @tracenaija to do right by Ghanaian musicians, by giving them the airtime they have earned just as they do for others. Thank you.”
