I Have Passed Receiving Award Plaques; I Am Not Taking Any Again If There Is No Money To It— Ofori Amponsah
Cinderella hitmaker Ofori Amponsah, has revealed that he is not going tolerate taking awards that have nothing on them.
He says he has passed that stage of appreciating just a plaque so he would not grace any award event if it does not come with money or something of substance.
Speaking in an interview with Mike 2, he said;
For me, if someone calls me for an award and he/she does not give me money I won’t go. If they won’t give me anything valuable I won’t go. I passed receiving plaques.
He added that he has actually taken time to make sure his friends sit with him on this and has been advising them to equally do the same.
I have decided and I’m calling on all my colleagues to do the same or else they are the same people who will laugh at us in the future. It’s because of the musicians the people who come to fill the venue. It’s because of the musician that the sponsorship comes through.
He concludes that there are lots of programs that give more than awards, some even give houses and cars, why must musicians own be any different?
If there is a program and they can give out a house as the price, then why can’t they do the same for artists?”
