Hiplife star, Screw Face in a recent social media update has revealed that organizers of Ghana Music Awards some years ago asked him to pay an amount to boost his chances of winning an award in the discovery of the year category.
According to him, the award was given to King Ayisoba when he failed to pay the amount requested.
The Gbalagaza man made this pronouncement on social media in support of Shatta Wale after rumors spread that Charterhouse, organizers of the annual awards had sidelined the “Kakai” hitmaker from the awards ceremony.
