For objectivity, the music of the year video category went to a Ghanaian producer (Brian Ohene) for CIC & Nuchie-Meek’s video: Chocolate. Many fans took to social media expressing their dissatisfaction about the win of Brian Ohene’s producer of the year win.
Fans of Liberian music felt that there was capable Liberians producers in the category and felt that Mr. Brian Ohene’s win robbed Liberian born and based producers of the award in that category. The expressed that this is an award for Liberian Music industry and giving it to someone other then a Liberian producer as deemed by the Award diminishes the Purpose of the MLMA.
Recommendations for future as it relates to this category include, adding a category for Africans/ other Nationalities contributing to the Liberian Music industry.
