Veteran Musician and failed pastor, Ofori Amponsah has called on award scheme organisers to add money to the plaques.
According to Ofori Amponsah, the musicians and their influence is the reason why award organizers get access to money for sponsorship so if there is nothing valuable than just a plaque, there is the need for artistes to start boycotting award schemes.
OFori asserted that, it is senseless to give plaques to artistes without any money to help them feed their families or pay some bills.
“For me if someone calls me for an award and he/she does not give me money I won’t go. If they won’t give me anything valuable I won’t go. I past receiving plaques. I have decided and I’m calling on all my colleagues to do same or else they are the same people who will laugh at us in future. It’s because of the musicians the people come to fill the venue. It’s because of the musician that the sponsorship comes through. If there is a programme and they can give out a house as the price, then why can’t they do the same for artistes?” he said while speaking in an interview with Accra-based Adom FM.
