The omission of DJ Azonto from the list of performing artists at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) has sparked disappointment among some social media users.
Despite being nominated for Best New Artist, DJ Azonto’s absence from the performance lineup has raised eyebrows, with many considering him to be one of the best stage performers in the country, especially with his hit single “Fa No Fom.”
Some speculate that his exclusion may be due to personal disagreements with the VGMA organisers, as he previously criticised them for not nominating his song in the Most Popular Song Of The Year category.
Others suggest that his unique style of dress and persona may have been a factor.
In a recent interview, DJ Azonto expressed his disappointment at not performing but remains determined to win the Best New Artist award.
Social media users have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment, as seen in some of the tweets below;

I’m sure the reason why VGMA didn’t book #DjAzonto is because of the way he dress. Maybe they think he’s promoting g@y.
