Sista Afia questioned the organisers whether she had offended them unknowingly and whether that was the reason she was not nominated in the 25th TGMA 2024.

She stated that her hit song 'Asuoden' topped the charts and made waves in 2021.

"Have I offended someone at the high table, Ghana Music Awards?? The fact that Asuoden was a big song in 2021 but got zero nominations which I still don’t get."

Sista Afia further made allegations against the prestigious award scheme saying:

"I learnt people don’t even file for nominations but get nominated, the downplay on my efforts ever since I started doing music in Ghana hasn’t been fair to my craft."

Expressing her displeasure, the singer who blasted Hilda Bacci once stated that she was hurt for not obtaining a single nomination, adding that she works so hard.
