A-list Ghanaian musicians Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were banned indefinitely from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards scheme, stripped of all the awards they won last year and asked to return the plaques after their scuffle disrupted the 20th edition of the event last year.
With nominations for the 21st edition of the awards already opened, Ghanaian, especially the fans of the two Dancehall music giants, have been wondering if Charter House, the organizers of the awards was going to pardon them and allow them to fill nominations.
Well, Head of Public Events of the company, Robert Klah has stated that the inclusion or otherwise of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale will be determined after the board is reconstituted.
Speaking in an interview with MzGee on 3FM’s ShowBuzz Mr. Klah mentioned the board will be reconstituted before the deadline for the filing of nominations.
“As it stands, the resolve of the board still holds. When the board reconstitutes, they can decide whether the ban should be lifted or not,” he said.
He further reiterated in the interview monitored by zionfelix.net the point that even if it does not happen in that time frame, it is still possible.
He stated that “Reconstitution of the board is happening this month. Submissions are going to end on 31st but it doesn’t necessarily mean that work on nomination ends because when the board is working and they feel some particular music has done well, they can find out if submissions have been made and if submissions have not been made, sometimes, they reach out to the persons involved just to find out if they are willing to tender in. These are some of the things that happen in the background.”
