It has been confirmed that the management of Yfm has written a letter of caution to Sammy Forson, an employee of the radio station, for his consistent promotion of one particular artist, in the person of Sarkodie.
It can be said that industry players and critics of the music industry, whiles awaiting the nomination list of this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), have reminded DJs and Presenters that they would not be allowed to impose songs which do not merit to be awarded on the public, just for the fact that they have had a popular air play from some radio stations.
It has become a canker, menace and evil on a few of the radio stations, while presenters and DJs manipulate or impose their own artiste’s songs on the listening pleasure of Ghanaians.
In spite of the consistent campaign of kicking out the practice of corruption in the music industry, “Payola” has contributed to the current rend, whiles DJs and presenters are being employed by musicians as producers to push their products on their platform, preventing the listening public from having the best of musical content for the consumption of Ghanaians.
