After afrobeat singer Kitoko came out in public to criticize the annual Salax awards, more of those disparaging remarks continue to pour in amid rumors that some artistes plan to buy the accolades.
Rapper Pacson, who became famous with his song Same Hood is the latest star to condemn the awards saying they do not recognize the achievements of the musicians.
Pacson said, “It’s already predetermined who is going to win what, so there is nothing good to look forward to. A very good example is the Diaspora recognition award which is predestined to be handed to The Ben. That’s a fact.”
