Music producer Da’Hammer has added his voice to the ongoing debate as to whether Fancy Gadam really deserved the award for the Most Popular Song of the Year at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
According to Hammer, Patapaa’s song was clearly the most popular last year and he should have been given the award, period.
He also advised Charterhouse saying they should look at taking away voting from the most popular song of the year category and instead use data to truly determine which song has been most popular.
He posted this on his timeline on Facebook:

“How do u vote for the most popular song of the year… Popular means popular period. This shld be unanimous by the board and academy… Backed by data from radio stations. u can’t ask to vote for this! That’s how u end up with the wrong song. Cos votes can be bought.. just buy loads of credits get your team to embark on Heavy voting. This means u compromise the legitimacy of the awards just for the coins you’ll make from votes. NOT FAIR… No song was bigger than one corner in 2017.. why u dey play with ppls struggle and hustle? The boy chop the thing hands down. Stop playing with ppls hard work and emotions. NOT COOL
