Breaking News: CharterHouse Bans Stonebwoy And Shatta Wale From Participating In VGMA
Ghanaian Reggae-Dancehall artistes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been stripped off all awards won at the 20th edition of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
At a press briefing currently ongoing, Mrs Theresa Ayoade, CEO of Chatterhouse slammed both artistes, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale for their misbehaviour that marred the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
At the press briefing at the Alisa Hotel in North Ridge, Accra, she described the duo as selfish individuals.
The VGMA board together with CharterHouse has come to a decision to ban the two dancehall greats, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy and strip them off the awards won at the just ended awards ceremony. According to the VGMA board, the decision was taken after “careful deliberations” and “extensive consultation” with stakeholders in the music industry.
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale just before the VGMA Board announcement revealed in a post on Facebook that he will no longer be part of the Ghana Music Award scheme going forward due to the recent happening this past weekend.
Mrs Theresa Ayoade, CEO of Chatterhouse further said she was not happy for the turn of events on the night and debunked rumours that adequate security was not put in place during the event.
The event last Saturday was marred by violence when fans of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy clashed on stage in a free-for-all brawl. Stonebwoy was on stage to take his award for for reggae/dancehall music artiste of the year.
The two artistes have since apologised for their actions but the board of VGMA have stripped off all awards won by the two and subsequently suspended them indefinitely from the awards scheme.
