Renowned Ghanaian media personality and host of Peace FM’s entertainment review show, Kwasi Aboagye, has hit back at the founder of the Ghana Music Awards UK, Alordia, following a heated exchange of words between the two.
The clash stems from comments made by Aboagye, which questioned the £80,000 payment to Shatta Wale by the awards’ organizers.
In a response, Alordia didn’t mince words, labeling Aboagye’s remarks as unfounded, ridiculous, and insulting to the considerable investments made in organizing the prestigious event. Alordia defended the integrity of the Ghana Music Awards UK and accused Kwasi Aboagye of speaking out of envy and hatred.
Alordia went a step further by making a surprising allegation that Aboagye had been persistently seeking him out to secure tickets to the UK. However, Alordia claimed that he refused to oblige because he suspected Aboagye’s intentions were far from genuine.
“Kwasi Aboagye has been chasing me over the last two years to buy a ticket for him to come to the UK. But I refused because I knew he had no good intentions for me. He had invited me to his show three times, and anytime they invited me, they set me up. Listen to him and how he speaks; he talks out of hatred. I am an entertainment person, and when you want to set me up, you will not succeed. He hates me and does not mean well for me,” Alordia asserted during an interview on Rainbow Entertainment on Rainbow Radio 92.4FM in the UK.
In response to Alordia’s claims, Kwasi Aboagye, while speaking on the Tuesday edition of his show on Peace FM, refuted that he begged Alordia for a ticket to the UK. Aboagye contended that Alordia had offered to secure a ticket for him after providing him with free airtime to promote his awards show in the UK over the years on his show.
The respected media personality went on to emphasize that, at the time when Alordia allegedly promised to get him a ticket, one of his close friends in the UK had mocked the idea. According to Kwasi Aboagye, the friend had questioned whether Alordia could afford to buy a ticket given his job as an Uber driver, which seemingly struggled to cover his expenses in the UK.
Kwasi Aboagye further emphasized that he held a valid UK visa for ten years, rendering him entirely self-sufficient regarding travel plans. He added that if he ever needed a ticket, he could have easily approached his boss, Fadda Dickson, who would have readily arranged it.
