The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has said in an official statement that sponsors, Aiteo would have to explain the lack of regional spread in performances at the 26th Caf Awards in Accra Thursday.

Ghanaians on social media have blasted the awards for showcasing many Nigerian artists and too little from the host country, Ghana. Efya opened the show with the national anthem while Kidi came on stage to perform when the show was over and people had left then auditorium.  Togo’s Toofan and Congolese Fally Ipupa made appearances.

In a statement issued to congratulate winners as well as organizers, CAF stated, “While praising their efforts, we will be seeking an explanation from AITEO over the line-up of musicians for the event”.

“We had agreed with them, in pursuit of continental spread of the performers, to ensure a regional balance and a strong local representation of at least two musicians from the host nation Ghana – Kidi and Shatta Wale.

“However, that did not happen and there is the need for an explanation from them on why that was the case in order to make next year’s event more successful.”
