There is no unfair treatment meted out to Sista Afia – Robert Klah on TGMA snub

Head of Public Events and Communications for the Telecel Ghana Music Awards, Robert Klah has encouraged Ghanaian singer and songwriter Sista Afia to reach out to the organization regarding any concerns she may have about her absence from the 2024 nominee list.

The nominee list for the 2024 Telecel Ghana Music Awards was released on March 28, 2024.

In response to the news, Sista Afia expressed her dissatisfaction on Twitter, alleging unfair treatment by the scheme, especially citing her hit song “Asuoden” from 2021 not receiving any nominations in the previous edition.

She questioned if she had offended someone within the scheme and raised suspicions about some artists receiving nominations without applying.

Robert Klah addressed Sista Afia’s grievances on Hitz FM on April 2, 2024, emphasising that all nomination processes were conducted fairly by the organisers.

He stated that Sista Afia had not offended anyone within the scheme and that no unfair treatment had been directed towards her.

“Sista Afia can always reach out to me. I am always accessible. I don’t think she has stepped on anyone’s toes as far as I am concerned. The same process we follow to nominate artists is the same thing we are doing,” Robert Klah stated.

Klah refuted Sista Afia’s claims about artists securing nominations without applying, explaining the involvement of a dedicated research team responsible for merit-based nominations who always contact the artists beforehand.

He encouraged all concerned artists to contact the Telecel Ghana Music Awards for clarification regarding their nominations.

“It is not entirely true that people do not file for nominations and yet they get nominated. We have a research team who in some cases include certain songs that merit nomination. And even with that, we contact the artiste first.

“If for any reason, anyone has a strong case, you can petition the board and we will do what has to be done.”

The 2024 Telecel Ghana Music Awards, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is a prestigious event honouring the achievements of Ghanaian artists across various genres.

Scheduled for June 1st, the ceremony saw Stonebwoy leading with fifteen nominations, followed by Kuami Eugene with fourteen, and Sarkodie with eight. Last year’s big winner, Black Sherif, received six nominations this year.
