Guru blames Bola Ray, Obrafuor for his inability to win VGMAs
Musician Guru has attributed his inability to be recognized by Charterhouse Productions Limited, organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), to his association with legendary rapper Obrafuor and Empire Entertainment owned by Nathaniel Kwabena Anokye Adisi, popularly known as Bola Ray.
Guru explained in an interview with Giovani Caleb on the 3FM Drive that he did a song with Obrafuor titled ‘Kasie Bo’, a song, he said, analyzed the whole music and entertainment industry in Ghana.
In that song, he said, they stepped on the toes of some big event organizers including Charterhouse and that may be the reason behind his inability to be nominated for awards, apart from the one he won for ‘Boys Abre’ song.
He suspects that he is being punished for that. In the case of Bola Ray, he said, he joined Empire Entertainment and performed during one of the Ghana Meets Naija events organized by the company.
But, he said, because Empire Entertainment and Charterhouse are both event organizers and are into competition, the latter may have decided not have anything to do with him.
These he anticipates to be the reasons for his inability to win an award in spite of the sterling performances he has put up in the past.
