The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) board has shown again how less they value Ghana’s two biggest artists by publicly announcing their ban lifted without sitting with the other parties to sort things out.
The news now is that the VGMA board has internally agreed to lift its ban on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy ahead of the 2021 edition.
Speaking on Hitz FM’s Daybreak, Head of Public Events and PRO of Charterhouse, Robert Klah, said the decision to lift the band was taken at the board’s inaugural meeting.
“It was in principle decided that the ban should be lifted.”He told the host.
As if their actions were not disrespectful enough, having banned the Dancehall duo indefinitely and asked that all the awards they won prior to the incidence be returned, the award scheme is yet to see the management of the two artist.
The PRO stated that Charterhouse will make an official announcement after the organisers meet with both artistes and their management teams to sort out outstanding issues.
“There is a reason why this altercation happened and you want to be sure that they don’t resurface. You want to have that kind of conversation to understand and agree on how things should move,” he said to the host.PRO, Robert Klah told Andy Dosty,the host.
The fact that the award scheme came out with this without prior consultation with the two artist show how little of respect they accord them.
