Public Relations Officer for Charterhouse, George Quaye has stated fans of Ghanaian dancehall artists Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy who voted for them during the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards will not receive their monies back.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Kwasi Aboagye, George Quaye revealed the winners were not determined solely by the votes and so it was out of place for voters to request for their monies.
“Let’s not forget the winners were not solely determined by the votes by the fans. What about the board and academy who left their various assignments to vote on who wins. What about the artists who didn’t win.Did their fans come out asking for their monies?, he quizzed.
On Thursday May 23, 2019, Charterhouse, organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in a press conference announced Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been stripped off awards won this year and are to return their plaques with immediate effect. The organization has also banned both artists indefinitely.
