Organizers of the Vodafone ICONS (Street Edition) reality show which ended last week, have denied allegations by hip-life artiste Kwaw Kese that he was asked to pay money to enable his brother win the competition.
Kwaw Kese popularly known as Abodam disrupted the declaration of the winner of the reality show during the live recording last week Thursday, by storming the stage.
For several minutes, the artiste protested at the eviction of his brother Buda from the Top Two finalists and later alleged that he was asked to pay GHc10,000 for his brother to win. According to him, he strongly suspects that his refusal to pay the money deprived his brother of winning the reality show.
Vodafone, organizers of the reality show, have issued a statement Friday to debunk the allegations stating, Ryan, who emerged winner of the reality show, won genuinely.
According to the statement signed by Carmen Bruce-Annan, Vodafone Ghana’s Head of Brand & Corporate Communications, and copied Myjoyonline.com, the company has a zero-tolerance towards bribery and corruption.
“Vodafone is a high integrity organisation that has zero-tolerance towards bribery and corruption. This is non-negotiable and under no circumstance will we compromise on this by demanding money from any contestant or their families.”
