“I am deeply disappointed,” expressed Sista Afia upon not receiving a nomination for the Ghana Music Awards

Musician Sista Afia has taken to social media to express her disappointment and frustration for not getting nominations at the Ghana Music Awards.

In a heartfelt post, Sista Afia questioned whether she had offended someone on the high table of the Ghana Music Awards, particularly given the success of her song ‘Asuoden’ in 2021.

Despite its popularity, she received no nominations, leaving her disheartened and questioning the award board.

Sista Afia lamented the perceived injustice in the nomination process, suggesting that some artists receive nominations without filing for them.

This discrepancy, she argued, undermines her efforts and diminishes the recognition she rightfully deserves for her hard work in the music industry.

Despite back-to-back hit songs she has recorded since she joined the music industry almost a decade back, Sista Afia has just a few awards to her credit.

In as much as she wants to tread carefully to avoid stepping on toes, she explained she can no longer hold her peace as the situation is beginning to weigh her down.

She wrote, “Have I offended someone at the high table Ghana Music Awards ?? The fact that Asuoden was a big song in 2021 zero nominations which I still don’t get.

“I learnt people don’t even file for nominations but get nominations, the downplay on my efforts ever since I started doing music in Ghana hasn’t been fair to my craft.”

“And yes it hurts because I work so hard. I’ve been quiet for so long because I have respect for the scheme and I don’t want to step on no one’s toes,” Sista Afia added.

Meanwhile, her fans have taken over her comment section to send her reassuring messages about her value and unbeatable contribution to the industry.

Rita Edochie Sadly Refuses to Celebrate Her Birthday, Dedicates It to Late Actor, Junior Pope

Veteran Nigerian actress Rita Edochie has opted not to celebrate her birthday as she mourns the passing of the late actor Pope Obumneme Odonwodo, also known as Junior Pope.

Junior Pope and four other crew members tragically lost their lives in a boat accident in the Anam River while en route to shoot a movie titled ‘The Other Side of Life,’ produced by Adanma Luke.

Tiwa Savage says she became a 'boss lady' to make new film 'Water and Garri'

The Prime Video original film “Water and Garri,” produced by Tiwa Savage and directed by Meji Alabi, is set to start streaming on May 10, 2024. In a recent interview with ABC, Tiwa Savage discussed her involvement in the project, highlighting how it allowed her to embrace her role as a “boss lady.”

Executive producing was like me just putting my boss hat on and trying to be a boss lady in all aspects of my life. It was fun and it was stressful doing that and also starring in it. But it just showed me that I can do anything I put my mind to. There are so many things that I have dreams of accomplishing and now I’m really motivated,” she said.

She also spoke about why she wanted to go into acting and why the movie bears the same title as her 2021 EP.

I’ve always wanted to do acting. I’ve always wanted to do movies. Actually, that was my first love before music. So it felt like a full circle moment for me. I just felt it was time for me to finally get into that. I never wanted to let go of music, so it’s a great way for me to still embody that.”

Savage said that she was drawn to the film because it was told from a female perspective. Water and Garri follows a Nigerian fashion designer who returns to the country after building a successful career in the US.

It’s a story first of all told by a female from a female point of view. I’m always an advocate for that and I don’t think we have enough of that in the space of Nollywood and just in Africa in general. We do have but I don’t think we have enough. It’s refreshing for me. It’s a story about love, female empowerment,” she said.

Savage also spoke about the rise of Afrobeats in the West.

I feel like genres like RnB, jazz, soul all originated from Africa, so it’s a full circle moment to have Afrobeats having its moment right now. And then hear elements of it from the rhythm to the soul in the music. I felt like we were losing a bit of that in commercial music these days. It’s good to see that African music is getting its shine again,” she said.
