Midway through EL’s performance, there was a ‘technical hitch’ which compelled him to halt for some minutes for the challenge to be resolved.
As he continued with his performance, Elorm Adablah, as known in real life, continuously mentioned that he had something to say but never did, a situation which led to a section of the crowd hooting at him.
Prince David Osei, who was among those who witnessed the event, has taken to his Instagram page to ask organisers to render an unqualified apology if what happened was not a sabotage.
In the midst of arguments on whether EL deserved to win Artiste of the Year at the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Prince argued that whether he deserved it or not, Ghanaians should rally behind him than showing signs of hatred.
“…why was it that the power never tripped? Or microphone messed up before EL performed or after his performance??? All other artiste had their microphone and whatever have you, going well for them except EL... Let’s learn to love one another. The hate, jealousy, sabotage, won't take us anywhere ...Whether Moses or Gaddafi likes or not He's the Artiste of the year according to VGMA 2016 and he's Ghanaian the dude got enormous talent... as Shatta Wale rightly said last night, we all Ghanaians, if you hate him, you hate Ghana because he represent Ghana wherever he goes...I think the organisers of Ghana meet Naija should render an open apology to EL..If they know it wasn't a sabotage... my thoughts...let's learn to love ourselves as Ghanaians… El where ever you are big up yourself u blessed and a great talent for Ghana no man can stop your shine we know your worth bruv....my fellow legonite @elrepgh thumbs up u acted very professional kept your cool and gave your best, most musicians would have walked away based on the circumstance...” his post read.
Meanwhile, EL has stated that he was not angry during his performance at the event but was frustrated.
“I wasn’t angry, I was just frustrated. It’s a technical thing and you cannot predict the way machines will work. I heard the machine was heating up so someone had to pull some things out… You can’t blame anybody for that… There were so many things we planned to do but we couldn’t. I guess next time, we are going to have a real serious talk about this with anybody who will be involved so that we can avoid it” he told Hitz FM.
