For his performance, one artist in particular, King Promise, received a lot of attention on social media. The “Terminator” hitmaker was harshly criticised online by many people who thought his vocal performance lacked quality. Some, on the other hand, think that King Promise’s performance suffered because of the event’s subpar sound system.

Nana Poku Ashis, an entertainment pundit and artist manager, has weighed in on the ongoing discussion.He believes that King Promise should not be solely blamed for the mistake, as there were also challenges with the sound system. He has proposed a solution to prevent and address such issues in future editions of the awards.

“Given the importance of sound for the event, I would like to propose that we think about asking other experts to handle the sound next year,” he said.
He related a personal experience of seeing a comparison between Samini and Tarrus Riley’s performances at a previous event called Blitz on the Hills in Kwahu. Even though Samini gave a great performance, when Tarrus Riley’s engineer took over, the sound quality declined. They were taking a long time to adjust the sound, which confused the audience.

The truth is, I was the one in charge of the stage. Tarrus Riley came on right after Samini, and Samini jammed. The crowd went crazy for it, and the sound was great until Tarrus Riley’s engineer entered. I wanted to know if Samini performed at the same venue or if microphones were brought in. What did they do? It took them 15 to 30 minutes to tweak the sound while people were there.


He narrated on the show, “Everyone was like, What is happening here? “They arrived late and could not do a sound check before the show started, but they asked for the time to do something.”


According to Ashis contrary to public opinion, King Promise was not singing off-key but rather struggling with the key notes due to the sound he was hearing.
