Nominations were released Saturday June 8 for the award ceremony which is scheduled for July.
But ahead of nominations, Bandana had on June 2 announced on social network twitter that he was not part of the award.
His tweet said, “I pulled out from the Bass Awards personally because I don't need it. My fans should not be deceived.SM4LYF.”
Obviously what he was trying to say was that his intellectual property should not be entered in any of the categories of the awards.
But it was yet to be confirmed if he would set foot at the award ceremony at all or possibly perform if he was contacted to do so.
However his manager Rude Boy Sterling currently takes part in decision-making for the award ceremony which is to bring down Jamaican icon Elephant Man.
Questions are being raised as to why he is still on the committee if his artiste has pulled out.
While some argue that he should go, others think that he should be maintained on the committee, since it might be Bandana’s personal decision to pull out of the award.
Bandana’s latest action follows his recent outburst during 2013 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
He descended heavily on Charter House, organizers of the annual Ghana Music Awards, accusing the outfit of illegally giving the Reggae Dance Hall Song of the Yearaward to Kaakie
Just a few minutes after Kaakie was announced winner of that category which also had Bandana, Blakk Rasta, Eazzy, Knii Lante and Samini as contenders, the artiste popularly known for the hit song Bandana From Ghana, took to social media platform, Twitter, to vent his anger on the organizers.
Bandana did not spare Kaakie, who walked away with two awards on the night. He said: “F**k khakie who (can't) even write her own music...I know how they did this...but trus mi we kno how to handle dis.”
On May 22 Bandana tweeted, “I apologise if my diss to kaakie has worried some women across da nation. I did it for a reason.”
