Hiplife artiste, Patapapa has apologized to Charterhouse, organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) after he claimed they had taken bribe to cheat him out of winning the most popular song of the year.
In an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat yesterday, he explained that he made those comments out of anger, adding that he deeply regrets his action.
The ‘One Corner’ hit maker is recalled to have shown disappointment in the aftermath of the VGMAs for not winning the most popular song of the year.
Patapaa who was confident of winning in that category, later accused Charterhouse of taking bribe and giving his rightful award to Fancy Gadam.
He was then challenged by Charterhouse to provide evidence that he was cheated or do the honourable thing by apologizing for his baseless comments that has tarnished the company’s image.
“If Patapaa has an evidence of us taking money from any nominee, he should release else he should apologise to the board, academy and the general public for that comment,” the
Public Relations Officer of Charterhouse, George Quaye told ZionFelix in an interview.
“We will release the votes very soon so that we all see how everybody performed on the night. It is a very unfortunate statement from him.”
However, Patapaa has stated “I apologize to Charterhouse, that very day I was not myself…I was very disturbed and my fans were sad as well. I felt like going out of the auditorium and the media pushed me to do an interview, I know I didn’t speak well. Please forgive me, I’m very sorry.”
