Iwan took to his Facebook page and tried to set the record straight about the definition of Reggae and Dancehall.
“They say anyone who does reggae does dancehall music. So they create a category called ‘Reggae Dancehall Song of the Year’. I call this lack of education and the highest level of misunderstanding. Someone sitting on GhOne ignorantly said Bob Marley did dancehall. Which dancehall song did Bob do?” IWAN posted on his Facebook page.
Various Ghanaian artistes have registered their displeasure about the nomination list of this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards which happens to be the biggest music festival in Ghana currently. Some of them evidently point out some of the loopholes in the board and also in the nomination list of the event.
IWAN further called Charter House, the organizers of the event, “Hypocrites and parasites.”
“Enjoying reggae in their every bit of life but they can’t even properly award it. GH music needs more intellectuals not some hustlers who happen to find their way to the top. They think award is everything… Blackman sense. Fire burn them. IWAN is ready to give free tuition to the committee members on the difference between reggae and dancehall music,” IWAN wrote.
Below is the list of nominees for the Reggae Dance Hall Song of the Year category
