There have been mixed feelings following the GHC 20,000 grand prize announcement to the artiste who emerges as the ultimate winner of Happy Man Bitters Upper East Music Awards 2021.
Whiles many individuals applaud the main sponsor Dr. Emmanuel Bortey Borketey, of the mega event in the region for the initiative, others have expressed concerns about the transparency in coming out with the ultimate winner.
Some artistes in the upper east region alleged that there would be corruption and kickbacks to get the ultimate winner. One of the artiste who pleads total anonymity shares his experience with Timbia GH.
“Even if the world’s greatest artist is in this contest, “BOLGA” artists will still win. 😀😀😀 I say this out of personal experience with Bolga events. This amount of money will be given to wrong artist and percentages would be shared among the so call board members and they ( stomach vampiric stingy board members) will at the end fight among themselves, and we will hear the gist✍🏿✍🏿✍🏿”
Meanwhile, during his announcement of the grand prize, the CEO of Charger Limited, Dr. Emmanuel Bortey Borketey, charged the event organizers to do due diligence and present the best artiste to take the award.
