Reggae artiste Ras Kuuku stormed out of the Accra International Conference Centre after losing out on the two Reggae/Dancehall categories he was nominated in at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards on Saturday.
Fellow Dancehall great, Stonebwoy Burniton emerged the winner of both the Best Song and Artiste of the Year awards, much to the displeasure of the ‘Puoom’ man.
Before walking through the exit, he turned around and called organisers ‘thieves’ in the Twi language.
VVIP member Zeal obviously noticed this, for as he went up to receive the prize for Group of the Year with VVIP, he remarked that it was pointless to be angry at losing out on an award, but to work harder for it next year.
Ras Kuuku, since releasing Nokre (2012) has become pivotal in Reggae music in Ghana. With popular singles and collaboration with other key music acts across genres, he has bagged a number of awards, and gained a remarkable affection among music lovers.
Sponsored by telecoms giants, Vodafone, this year’s awards which is the 18th edition was hosted by Anita Erskine.
EL, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Joe Mettle, MzVee, Medikal are all in the running for the coveted award of Artiste of the Year.
