Versatile singer and radio presenter, Willy Young Delate, has expressed his disappointment in Lexis Events, organizers of the Upper East Music Awards.
The artiste expression comes after several complaints of exclusion by musicians from outside Bolgatanga floated social media immediately after release of nominees list.
According to the Navrongo music heavyweight, Lexis Events failed to make nomination forms available to musician residing outside of the regional capital. A situation he said resulted in fewer filings from artistes in other parts of the region such as Navrongo, Sandema, Bawku etc.
He also indicated that the promotion of the entire nomination process in other places was not effective as compared to Bolgatanga
” I’m a drivetime show host and I’m not even aware of the whole event despite the fact my station, Nabiina radio is clearly stated there that on the posters as a media partner” He stressed.
The artiste believes an individual is behind what he calls ‘sabotage’ and has therefore asked organizers of the event to launch an investigation into the issue. He also wished competitors in this year’s awards the best of luck.
The Upper East Music Awards (UEMA) is an award scheme to acknowledge hardworking artistes in the Upper East region.
