Ras Kuuku, who was confident of winning an award in the Reggae/Dancehall categories at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, stormed out of the Accra International Conference Centre after losing out to colleague Stonebwoy. He and his management resorted to screaming out claims of unfairness, and cronism during the event until they eventually walked out of the auditorium.
Ras Kuuku felt that the VGMA made it to hard for lesser known artists to won against the the bigger and popular artists, no matter how hard they work and make an impact in the industry. Before walking through the exit, he turned around and called organizers thieves in Twi. VVIP member Zeal obviously noticed this, for as he went up to receive the prize for Group of the Yea with VVIP, he remarked that it was pointless to be angry at losing out on an award, but to work harder for it next year.
