The song did so well and had international recognition all over the world.
Well, getting international recognition doesn’t mean you’re an automatic award winner.
Patapaa’s One Corner was nominated with:
- Sponsor – Ebony
- Odo – KiDi
- Angela – Kuami Eugene
- Taking Over – Shatta Wale ft. SM Militants
- Total Cheat – Fancy Gadam ft. Sarkodie
- Bronya – Wutah
- Bo Noo Ni – Joe Mettle ft. Luigi Maclean
- Obi Agyi Obi Girl – Captain Planet ft. Kofi Kinaata
- My Baby – Magnom ft. Joey B
- Oh Yeah – King Promise
- Pain Killer – Sarkodie ft. Runtown
We all agree Patapaa deserved the award but it was Fancy Gadam who came on top.
Now let’s tell you how Patapaa lost to Fancy.
Unlike the other categories, the Vodafone Song of the Year is a 100% public vote category.
Which means, the VGMA board and academy didn’t have any say in this particular category.
Everything is left to the public to decide through voting.
Plus we all know when it comes to voting there’s no way anyone can beat the ‘King of the North.’
A source from Charter House told us Fancy Gadam had a lot of votes; way better than anyone else in that category.
Guess we all understand why Patapaa didn’t win the award.
Even he understands now.
God's time is the best. Everything happens for a reason. Heaven knows I tried my best.#VGMA2018
