The Director of Communications, Office of the Vice -President, Frank Agyei-Twum has reacted to an on-going advertisement on television screens and radio claiming the Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will be present at this year’s ‘Adonko’ Radio and Television Personality Awards.
In a Facebook post, Agyei-Twum stressed that, “The Vice President has nothing to do with the 2017 RTP awards and will not be present at the said ceremony.”
The 7th edition of the Radio & Television Personality (RTP) Awards is scheduled for October 28, 2017.
Per the advert running, personalities invited to grace the occasion include, Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Former President of Ghana-John Dramani Mahama, Rev. Dr. Boadi Nyamekye (Founder and Leader of Makers House Chapel) and other dignitaries.
Section of the public hold the view that once high profile personalities will be present at the event, it should be treated as a corporate show with regards to the type of artistes to perform on stage.
High-flying sensation, Patapaa Amisty, who was billed to perform at this year’s event has shot down earlier reports suggesting that, he was not performing at the awards show.
The Swedru based artiste indicated that, he will be performing at the event and entreated his fans to ignore earlier publications.
Other Ghanaian musicians performing Live at the Adonko Radio & Television Personality Awards are Ebony, Kurl Songx and Patience Nyarko.
