Jerome Bigx a digital marketer, artiste manager, publicist for Beehyvve Entertainment/Feli Nuna has called on organizers of Volta Music Awards to remove artiste JJ Gonami from the scheme to protect its image and authority.
He was talking on #VMAMoments a new segment on Global Drive. This segment is to drum home the essence of the awards scheme with host Bright Ellis. JJ Gonami one of the many artistes who chastised the scheme when nominees for various categories was launched and announced last Saturday 3rd February 2018 at Sky Plus Hotel in Ho, he JJ Gonami registered his displeasure at why some of his works didn’t appear in some categories and some put in categories he didn’t filed for.
The Dzidzorkporkpor hit maker also made it known, he filed for seven(7) categories but got four(4) nominations which he is not happy with. The worse of it all has to do with his song ANKO not placed in hiplife songs of the year category. With these his acclaimed errors, he took to social media to announce his pull out from the scheme but said he later deleted the post because it’s out of anger he told host of Global Drive, Bright Ellis.
“I have worked very hard within the year(s) under review and churned out 60 songs which are all hits. I don’t deserve to be treated like this. I deserve to be part of the artistes of the year category. All these got me angry”, he fumed.
Jerome Bigx who was a guest on the show re-echoed a question by Bright Ellis asking Gonami, ” Why he is asking for fans to vote for him but on social media has announced his pull out from the scheme”, that is a double standard and is a disrespect to the award scheme.
The scheme has standard and criteria for qualifications and nominations.
The fact that you filed for nomination doesn’t mean you will get what you want. To serve as a deterrent to other artistes, JJ Gonami should be removed from the competition. By so doing, the scheme protects it’s image hence exercising its prerogative powers. “If any artiste disrespects the scheme, he or she should be removed so we have decorum”, Jerome fumed.
JJ Gonami real name Jacob Gonami Agbenuvor has therefore urged his fans to vote even as he’s yet to meet his team and decide on whether to pull out of the race.
He however has stated clearly that if he wins not even a single award on the main night, he has been cheated. “If I didn’t win any award, then I have been cheated, I deserve to win all categories nominated for. It will be a clear cheat if I didn’t win an award on the night”, he concluded.
10th March 2018 is the main awards night at HTU Auditorium, Ho.
