“Lobbying Isn’t A Wrong Thing -” Nii Noi Speaks On Alleged Influence On VGMA
Nii Noi

Gospel Talent Manager, Nii Noi, has defended the Gospel fraternity against accusations that it has attempted to sway the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) board and academy.


His defence follows claims by media personality, George Quaye, who stated that some gospel musicians are allegedly doing everything they can to influence the VGMA board and academy in order to win.


In an interview on 3Music TV’s Culture Daily, Nii Noi stated that because the board and the academy have so much power, the winning dynamics have shifted, necessitating a fresh approach.


“Board now has 40%, so on the whole voting stream, they are the most powerful. Academy now has 30%. The two have 70% and the public also has 30%. In previous years, we’ve canvased votes from the public a lot but when the dynamics changed, we intend to change some kind of strategy so then lobbying to me, I don’t think it’s a wrong thing.”


He revealed that a text message was instead sent to VGMA stakeholders, reminding them of the effort done by their artiste during the year in review and that no money was given to any person.


“What we did was to send reminder text messages to people we perceived to be board and academy members and remind them that we know that it’s time for voting. These are some of the things Piesie has done over the period so we’ve not held a gun to their head that they should vote for Piesie. We’ve not given anybody money.”  


The VGMA comes off this Saturday, May 6th, at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre(AICC).
