I have cursed VGMA board for what they did to me – Patapaa


According to Patapaa Amisty, a well-known Ghanaian artist best known for his song “One Corner,” Charterhouse, the organisation behind the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, may have been cursed by the gods.

In a recent interview with Hitz FM, Patapaa talked about his continued grief over the 2018 VGMA, when he was defeated by Fancy Gadam’s “Total Cheat” to lose the coveted Most Popular Song of the Year award.

The artist, whose actual name is Justice Amoah, claimed that due to the VGMA organisers’ behaviour during the awards ceremony, he thought God had cursed them.

“I can see that God has placed a curse on the organizers of VGMA because of what they did to me. I don’t want to go far,” he pointed out.

He refrained from providing further details on the matter but conveyed that the perceived curse was a form of punishment for causing pain to someone.

“If I want to go far, then I will say this, when we say curse, it means you are being punished for causing pain to someone. I don’t want to say it,” he said on the show.

According to the outspoken artiste, a clear example is the Amakye Dede controversy where he was allegedly coerced into crowning Kuami Eugene as his successor even though he was not prepared to honor.

“I would want to use Amakye Dede’s issue as an example but I don’t want to say it. They forced Amakye Dede to crown someone when he was not ready to do that”, he added.

Patapaa, whose song generated a sensation and expanded to other countries, was nominated for a VGMA in 2018 among other well-known singers including Ebony, KiDi, Kwami Eugene, Joe Mettle, and Captain Planet.

After the VGMA loss, Patapaa openly denounced the awards committee, saying they had accepted bribes to recognise talented singers.

He voiced his disapproval and vowed never to accept a nomination from the VGMA again.
