TGMA Red Carpet Session Sucked – KOD Slams

Broadcaster and fashion figure Kofi Okyere Darko popularly known as KOD, has voiced his disappointment with the red carpet session at the recent Telecel Ghana Music Awards. The founder of Nineteen57 fashion company believes that the attendees could have presented themselves more stylishly.

“The performers of the night brought their A-game. However, the red carpet was disappointing. When we observe events across the African continent, especially in South Africa and Nigeria, we see better fashion choices.

“We should keep things simple, especially for the men. Just wear a simple black suit and add a touch of color, perhaps in line with the red-themed event. In their attempt to outdo themselves, they end up under-doing themselves,” KOD commented.

In an interview on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z with Kwame Dadzie, the fashion expert pointed out that many proven fashion choices already exist, so there’s no need to create new ones. Serving as one of the early-stage hosts of the event, Darko also provided an assessment of the emceeing quality.

He observed that seasoned hosts like Naa Ashorkor, who has hosted similar events multiple times, were involved. Chris, who was making a return after a break from live shows, was also expected. Darko rated Chris a 7 out of 10, noting that while his introduction was somewhat shaky, it improved as the night progressed.

“I think we had timeless people who were not on stage for the first time. Naa Ashorkor has done this maybe three times. Chris took a break from hosting live shows, and I was looking forward to seeing him. On a scale of 0-10, I would give Chris a 7. The only place I didn’t get was their intro. They had a bit of a shaky intro, but they picked up,” he said.
