CAF Awards: Ghanian journalist shades Wizkid costume

The organizers of the just concluded CAF Awards has been berated by a Ghanaian journalist and prominent member of Ghana’s New Patriotic Party (NPP),Asare Otchere-Darko, for sidelining Ghanaian artistes during the event. Darko who was at the event took to his Facebook wall to express his disappointments with the performance of Nigerian born singer, Wiz-kid adding that CAF decided to crowd the stage with only Nigerian singers. He said: “Almost a perfect programme at the CAF Awards soiled by lack of local content. But why, they couldn’t find any Ghanaian musician? Pathetic! . ”Instead of treating us to some good Ghanaian performances, as well, CAF decided to populate the stage with Naija ones plus others, including a Nigerian artiste who was dressed as if he lost his way to the gym. I hear he is called Wizkid.”
