Ryan Korsah’s comment that organisers of Vodafone Icons’ failure to heed to an earlier agreement of getting him a recording contract has subsequently affected his music career did not go down well with Prince Tsegah, as the showbiz critic chided at the artiste.
The winner of Vodafone Icons Street Edition, in an interview with KMJ on Hitz FM accused organisers of the music reality show of denying him a recording contract due him as part of winning the competition.
Ryan in 2013 beat Kelvin to win the ultimate prize package valued at GHC 250,000. The prize package included a brand new Kia Sportage, Samsung products and a recording contract with one of the world’s biggest record label, Universal Music.
As reported earlier, Ryan during his interview, Wednesday, indicated that all prizes had been given him except the recording deal. He mentioned that a cash prize of GHC 50,000 was given him but that was not enough as he used the amount for a number of things, including paying for the loan his family secured to help him win the competition.
“Family people got loans just to vote for me and we have to pay back. I drive, I have to pay for fuel. If I want to do something else apart from music, I have to. I’m a grown up. Apart from the 50,000, they are supposed to do something extra. The money is nothing. They are supposed to give me exposure,” Ryan stated.
But a panelist on the show, Prince Tsegah, could not fathom why the artiste could not make good use of the said amount.
