It appears a lot of things went down at the backstage of the AITEO CAF Awards that led to most Ghanaian artists billed for the show not performing whiles Nigerian artist who were not billed for the night performed.
Nevertheless, a popular National Patriotic Party member (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, is not happy with the way Ghanaian artiste were totally sidelined allowing only their Naija counterparts to dominate that night.
As at then, the organizers have been under public criticism by most Ghanaians who were furious due to the work of the organizers.
Mr. Otchere-Darko, who was at the event, has criticised the organizers of the CAF Awards constructively.
He wrote on his Facebook shortly after the event that: “Almost a perfect programme at the CAF Awards soiled by lack of local content. But why, they couldn’t find any Ghanaian musician? Pathetic!”
“Instead of treating us to some good Ghanaian performances, as well, CAF decided to populate the stage with Naija ones plus others, including a Nigerian artiste who was dressed as if he lost his way to the gym. I hear he is called Wizkid”, he stressed.
Meanwhile, Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah was crowned the African Player of the Year 2017. He beat competition from fellow Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane of Senegal and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
