A veteran Ghanaian backing vocalist, Nana Ama, has taken shots at Diana Hamilton for failing to acknowledge the producer of her song ‘Adom’ after using it to win several awards at the VGMA’s.
Diana Hamilton won four awards Saturday night during the VGMA’s including the coveted Artiste of the Year award.
Her numerous award wins was kind courtesy of her smash hit gospel song, ‘Adom’.
‘Adom’ won ‘Gospel song of the Year’ and ‘Most popular song of the year’, which in turn helped Hamilton to win ‘Gospel Artiste of the Year’ and the big one, the ‘Artiste of the Year’.
She therefore had numerous opportunities to go up onstage and thank everyone who helped her out.
According to Nana Ama, Diana never thanked the producer of the song, Shadrak Yawson.
In a video on her Facebook page, she took aim at Hamilton for being ungrateful.
“Why are some musicians so wicked?… You go on platforms and you have to appreciate the person but you think you have paid for it so appreciating it is wrong.
It’s about time that changed. When I say some musicians are ungrateful people don’t understand. She didn’t even say anything… Not even thank you…” Nana Ama ranted.
“We have to change. This is a wake-up call to musicians, engineers, instrumentalists, and backup vocalists.
The award you are not sharing with him… we say to appreciate the person to know that you are grateful.
“Thanking others is fine but if the producer didn’t add his knowledge to it, it wouldn’t be a hit… It is not a fight but I am pained that such happened to him.
The hiplife and reggae artistes are able to do that but the gospel musician,” she concluded.
