The management of award winning Ghanaian female Dance Hall artiste, Xtra Large Music has issued a statement concerning a fake Kaakie account on Twitter impersonating their artiste via @kaakieofficial.
The statement copied to GhanaGist.com reads “Xtra large Music, Award Winning female dancehall artiste, Kaakie’s record label wishes to announce that, Kaakie is being impersonated on twitter via a twitter handle @kaakieofficial.”
Shortly after Kaakie picked the Reggae Dance Hall Song of the Year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards with her song ‘Toffee Pon Tongue’, Shatta Wale formerly known as Bandana who was also nominated in the category with Shatta City took to Twitter to vent his angry on the organizers as well as calling Kaakie names.
The artiste and her management has seen been mute about the whole incident. It is believed that, the fake account was created with the purpose to reply the unfortunate tweets by Bandana.
The label said “We wish to state that, Kaakie has never owned and been in charge of a twitter account by that name. Kaakie’s official twitter handle still remains @kaakieGH, She can be found on instagram via @kaakieGh as well and her facebook her fan page is www.facebook.com/Kaakie.
Xtra Large Music is however disassociating itself from the account and the replies to Bandana. “We would wish the general public will disregard any information, tweet or messages from @kaakieofficial on twitter and any other digital platform purporting to be hers aside her original digital platforms stated which is @kaakieGh on twitter and Instagram, Kaakie on facebook.”
MUSIC AWARDS & ISSUES
On the issues emanating from the awards, we were very hopeful on the night and believe we unanimously won the two awards fairly; this was even evident at the event where almost the whole house started mentioning Kaakie’s name as the winner of the awards even before her name was mentioned by award presenters. Kaakie had worked very hard under the year in review having scaled all the odds, being evicted from a reality music competition just before the final, combining her hectic schedule as a nursing student and pursuing a music career, releasing seven singles that all went on to become hits songs earning her the name “Dancehall Queen”, performing alongside Reggae/Dancehall greats like Movado, Kiprich, Busy Signal, Samini , Keri Hilson, Bow Wow and other well known artistes, releasing a fantastic video all these we believe puts her in a good position to win the two awards she won. At this stage we are busy pulling all the stops to make sure her impending tour which starts this weekend in Tamale and maternal health campaign is successful and would like to concentrate on that.
We would also take this opportunity to thank everybody that have supported our artiste. We want to say a big thank you to the fans that have stayed loyal to her music, Ghanaian DJ’s, music presenters and radio stations that have continually aired her music to their audiences, Ghanaian bloggers, the entertainment press and journalists, event promoters, all the people that constructively criticized and gave us positive feedbacks on all aspects of Kaakie’s music career and anybody/organisation we forgot to mention. We are indeed very grateful for your support. We could not have won the two VGMA awards and YFM’s discovery of the year Award without your support and counsel.
