The 8th edition of the RTP Awards came off this Saturday Saturday, October 12, 2019, at the Accra International Conference Centre. There were some moments to behold but some were too embarrassing especially the one which has become the talk of the town; Kofi Kapito’s derogatory comments about Serwaa Amihere’s bortos.
Well, it seems one of the most embarrassing moments that we missed was when Zylofon FM Reggae show host, Blakk Rasta was shamed after he walked on stage to pic an award only to be told he wasn’t the winner.
It all happened when the one presenting the award to the winner for the Radio Program of the Year Award mentioned “…and the winner is Blakkkk…”and before she could end, the room had gone into a frenzy making it difficult for Blakk Rasta to hear the last name which was Koby.
Apparently, he didn’t realise he wasn’t the only one called Blakk in the category but concluded that he was the winner because of the frenzy in the auditorium.
He walked to the stage to pick up the award, only to be told that it was Blakk Koby who had won the award; embarrassing right? I can’t imagine how he felt after those words by the presenter.
Anyways, better luck next time Blakk Rasta.
