EL, real name, Elorm Adablah, was crowned Artiste of the Year at the 17 edition of the biggest event on Ghana’s music calendar.
Speaking on Pluzz FM’s AM Pluzz, Dada Hafco said although EL did well the year under review, his audience appeal was limited to the aforementioned regions.
“I still believe that EL’s appeal to the people does not truly go beyond Greater Accra and Ashanti regions. You hardly hear EL play a concert in Takyiman, Sunyani or something. Bisa had been all around the country playing all the shows. And I believe that, people love the song that’s why he won the Most Popular Song of the Year and Album of the Year. So obviously, I was thinking that he would win the Artiste of the Year. Nevertheless, EL wasn’t a bad choice,” he stated.
Other categories won by EL were Afro-pop Song of the Year, Music Producer of the Year, Hiplife/Hip-pop Artiste of the Year and Best Music Video of the Year.
Bisa Kdei won four awards on the night: Highlife Song of the Year, Highlife Artiste of the Year, Most Popular Song if the Year and Album of the Year.
Meanwhile, the rapper has said he will not be distracted by the five awards he won.
"I’m not for the hype or unnecessary noise making but I’m for making music for people to enjoy all around the world and that’s what I represent. We are going back to the studios to make more music because that is what we represent,” he told TV3.
