After honoring Patapaa’s “One Corner” song as the Most Popular Song of The Year some days ago, Huawei Ghana has revealed that they will be rewarding several other musicians for a good job done despite their loss at the just ended Ghana Music Awards.
Marketing Manager for Huawei Ghana, Dennis Laryea disclosed in an interview that his outfit believes in creative persons so has decided to encourage them. He continued that Patapaa’s award presented to him at the Music Magic Comedy (MMC) event held at the National Theatre was the first of the several awards they will be giving to entertainers in the coming days.
When asked why they honored only Patapaa and left out King Promise, Kumi Guitar and other musicians who also had several nominations at the 19th edition of VGMAs but couldn’t win, Mr. Laryea replied that plans are far advanced to give the ‘Selfish’ singer an award due to his good works as an artiste.
“We would embark on this activity to recognize creative people who have done a lot but are not being rewarded. What we did with Patapaa is just the first of the many we will be doing in the coming days and I think Ghanaians are welcoming it. Fortunately, on that night we honored Patapaa, we had King Promise performing so we had a long chat and I believe he will also be having his soon.” Dennis Laryea stated.
On why Patapaa was surprised with the Most Popular Song Of The Year honourary award, Dennis Laryea revealed that:
“We are all aware that Patapaa did a good job last year. We feel his song went very far. Huawei works with a lot of Chinese and they all love the song One Corner so to motivate him, we felt like doing this for him to know that Ghanaians appreciate his talent.”
The Marketing Manager was also asked to list the items presented to Patapaa but he refused stating that the products given out was between the artiste and their company.
