Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a journalist and prominent member of Ghana’s New Patriotic Party (NPP), has criticised the organisers of the CAF Awards for sidelining Ghanaian artistes at the event which was hosted in Accra on Thursday, 4 January.
Octhere-Darko, who was at the event, wrote on his Facebook shortly after the event that: “Almost a perfect programme at the CAF Awards soiled by lack of local content. But why, they couldn’t find any Ghanaian musician? Pathetic! .
Instead of treating us to some good Ghanaian performances, as well, CAF decided to populate the stage with Naija ones plus others, including a Nigerian artiste who was dressed as if he lost his way to the gym. I hear he is called Wizkid.”
