Award-winning hiplife artiste, Tic, formerly known as Tic Tac has stated that he deserved to be nominated in more categories of the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
Speaking in an interview with Sunyani-based Sky FM’s Ike Frimpong which was monitored by www.newshuntermag.com, Tic mentioned the categories he deserved to have bagged a nomination.
“I should have been nominated for Artiste of the Year, Highlife song of the Year and Hiplife song of the Year and of course maybe best collaboration of the Year,” he said.
Tic who was perplexed about the VGMA nomination snub further stated: “Because if you are nominated for most popular song of the Year and the song is a Hiplife song or a Highlife song and it couldn’t make it in its own category then it baffles me as an artiste but it’s VGMAs.”
When asked whether he made submissions in all categories he mentioned, Tic answered: Sure, I did. I did a lot. I made a submission just for KWANI KWANI…but I did for PENE MAME too and you know it was a fantastic song but it was ignored which baffles me but that’s VGMAs again you know.”
He admitted that he is not much disturbed but development like this does not paint a good picture.
“It won’t but just that sometimes the efforts you put in is what you should have and It is just that the CREMES DELA CREMES of these shows, I mean if the international observers are to zoom in our shows and see that…it doesn’t give a clear picture of us and that is what we have. Because KWANI KWANI is one of the top Hiplife tracks in Ghana and it is not right for one of the originators of Hiplife to have a song that tops in Ghana and it’s not well, it is a bit confusing,” Tic bemoaned.
