Sista Afia hasn’t offended anybody, she can reach out to us – Robert Klah

The Head of Public Events and Communications for the Telecel Ghana Music Awards, Robert Klah has urged Ghanaian singer and songwriter, Fancisca Gawugah, better-known by the stage name Sista Afia,  to contact the organization to address any concerns she may have regarding her absence from the list of nominees for the 2024 event.

This comes after the music diva expressed her disappointment and frustration for not receiving any nominations at the 2024 Ghana Music Awards. In a heartfelt post on social media, the ‘Jeje’ questioned whether she had offended someone on the high table of the awards, especially considering the success of her song “Asuoden” in 2021. Despite its popularity, she received no nominations, leaving her disheartened and questioning the award board’s decision-making process. 

The crooner lamented the perceived injustice, suggesting that some artists receive nominations without even filing for them. This discrepancy undermines her hard work and diminishes the recognition she rightfully deserves in the music industry. She went on to allege that some artistes get nominations without even filing. 

However, responding to her grievances on Hitz FM on April 2, 2024, Robert Klah insisted that all due processes concerning nominations were being followed by the organizers of the scheme. He disclosed that contrary to her claims, Sista Afia hadn’t offended anyone at the scheme. Thus, no unfair treatment is being meted out on 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 artistes is the same thing we are doing,” he said.

Robert further debunked claims by Sista Afia that some artistes secure nominations without even applying. He said that there is a dedicated research team responsible for merited nominations and that they always contact the artistes beforehand.

“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,” he said.

Robert Klah called on all artistes who may have any concerns regarding their nominations to reach out to his outfit for clarification.

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