The ‘Anaconda’ hit-maker, Aletse Tinny, has taken Charter House, organizers of the Vodafone Music Awards, to the cleaners in what appears to be the most daring interview ever granted by a Ghanaian musician in recent times.

Speaking to NEWS-ONE on the recently-held music awards, Tinny said he watched the event on television from the comfort of his home and in his opinion it was boring and lacked the terrific ambiance expected of such an awards night.

“I mean when you watch from home, the programme was dry and you could see that the audience themselves were not having the feel they wanted to have.

Anytime the cameras captured the audience, they were seated very calm and quite as if they were listening to Christian lessons from Pastor Mensah Otabil.

“The stage design was okay and very well done but where was the stage lights and stage effects the organizers expected the artistes to perform with?

The stage was very dry and the same lighting system that was used for artistes who were going on stage to receive awards was the same lighting system used for the performances.

There was just something basically lacking and we should not blame the artistes for that,” Tinny told NEWS-ONE.

He added, “When you organize such an award and put the name ‘Ghana’ on it, you are expected to do something great because it takes a national outlook.

Especially when you take such huge amounts from the sponsors, you are to let the money go into the show so that people who buy the tickets would have value for their money but not what they did that night where very good musicians were made to perform under a situation that made them under-perform.”

Though several Ghanaian musicians have expressed strong reservations about the Ghana Music Awards, none of them has mustered the courage to go public with their criticisms due to the fear of a Charter House ‘mafia’, which is ready to pounce on such critics.

Tinny declined comments on which artiste won which award but said it was not proper that organizers of a Ghana Music Awards event would invite only Ghanaian musicians who had been nominated and completely ignore all other musicians except those penciled to present awards.

“It is not that Tinny or other musicians cannot buy the ticket to attend the ceremony but it is just not proper. And someone has to say it just as it is.

After all, Charter House, despite its sponsorship package, cannot pay Tinny to perform on such a night. No they can’t pay me”.

It is a statement of fact that almost all the artistes that performed on the night had been nominated for one category or another and the organizers snubbed all other artistes including VIP, the overall winners of the previous year’s Ghana Music Awards.

TINNY ROCKS APHRODISIAC

NEWS-ONE has confirmed that Tinny, in May, will rock the Aphrodisiac Night Club in Accra with his Tinny & Friends Anaconda Tour.

The debut Tinny & Friends Anaconda Tour  was held in the first week of April at the Vienna City Nightclub in Accra with an all-stars concert that saw performances from some of Ghana’s best musicians including Eze of Uradia fame, Tic-Tac, Gasmila, Stone Bwoy, D- Flex, Bandana, Jupitar, Arrow and Scientific.

Tinny explained that the tour was to enable him to have a direct relationship with his fans and to enable them to have a feel of his songs without having to wait for a festive season.
