Rasheed Seidu Bawa – popularly known as Hon. Bawa, a Radio Presenter and DJ with Enuanom Group of Companies’ Enuanom 105.1 FM in Agona Swedru Central Region and hosts Edwuma Mu Enigye weekdays from 10 am to 1pm and Weekend City Jams on Saturdays from 10 am to 1pm have raised a concern on the recent Rush Ghana DJ Awards.
Bawa has heavily criticized the organizers of the prestige DJ awards, Rush Ghana DJ Awards for what he described as ‘nonsense’ and unprofessional.
According to Hon. Bawa certain personalities who don’t deserve nomination were given and rather ignored those who deserved nomination.
“….what type of bogus awards scheme is this? You nominated radio presenters who can’t play songs for Regional DJ category. What type of bullshit? We are tired of awards organizers. Foklex Media Awards did a mischief and nominated ‘babies’ on their awards for Central Region, CMA did same who are we deceiving?…” he quizzed
He further said some Djs who appeared on the nominations list of Central Region DJ of the year are radio presenters who can’t even play songs with DJing software.
“….the most upsetting part of this DJs Awards is someone play 4 hours on air every day, play at events, pubs but didn’t get a nomination rather someone who is on air once in a week and can’t DJ got a nomination..”
He made a shocking revelation that an organizer of the annual DJ awards contacted a DJ in Central Region to pay a requested amount for him to earn a nomination but refused. Having made such allegation he dared the organizers of the DJs awards to explain how and why they nominated radio presenters in DJ Awards and also the criteria for the DJ awards.
“Seriously we need explanations for nominating radio presenters in DJ Awards. If they paid bribes let us know. A whole DJ Ajingo of Movics Longue and a finalist of Hitz FM’s Gh Hottest DJs didn’t earn a nomination what type of discrimination is this? Somebody help me.”
He made this comments during his Edwuma Mu Enigye show which airs weekly Monday – Friday 10am to 1pm on Enuanom 105,1 FM on Tuesday March 28, 2017.
Hon. Bawa is believed to have filed nominations for two categories in the Rush Ghana DJ Awards including Central Region DJ of the year and Discovery of the year but couldn’t earn a single nomination.
