Songstress, Noalla Wiyaala, has revealed why her name did not appear in any of the categories for this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
The singer who was the 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards’ Best Female Vocal Performer told host of Away Bus, Danny Fii Abrantie, on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, she did not file any nomination for consideration.
On why she failed to file a nomination, the pop star said, a lot of her fans have called to quiz why name did not appear in any of the categories and she has explained to them that, she did not file.
She said, her decision not to file was because she felt she had not released seven-ten songs that were back-back tracks.
According to her, the definitions by CharterHouse for the 2018 edition also contributed to her decision not to file.
‘’The way they [CharterHouse] described the awards; some of us, when we released one song the song needs to go the crowd and people have to get to use to it before we release another one. We take our time because our songs are not just something we do and in one week we cover it for another thing,’’ she said.
She was reacting to her tweet on why she failed to attend to the nominees unveiling for the 2018 awards ceremony.
She had earlier tweeted that: ‘’#VGMA2018@CharterHouseGH#VodafoneMusicGH Thanks for the invitation to the launch last night, Sorry I cound’t come. I was on the family farm #Funsi putting food on the table’’.
Wiyaala was invited by CharterHouse, to perform at the brief ceremony held in Accra to unveil all acts that have been nominated for this year’s awards ceremony under the theme ‘Beyond Borders’.
According to her, the invitation came late and only two days to the ceremony.
She described her tweet as an innocent one meant to explain to her fans, why could not attend the event.
‘’I did not refuse to attend the event. My tweet was an innocent tweet…The invitation came late. I was in Wa and so before I could travel to Tamale and board a plane to Accra; it would not have been an easy journey. I would have missed the event,’’ she explained.
