As Charterhouse, coordinators of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards call for sections for the 21st version of the plan, Head of Public Events of the organization Robert Klah says the consideration or generally of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale will be resolved after the board is reconstituted.

The two dancehall mammoths were prohibited inconclusively from the honors conspire, deprived of the considerable number of grants they won a year ago and requested to restore the plaques after they upset the twentieth release of the occasion

"The board of the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards deems the actions of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy to have flouted the terms and conditions of the scheme, brought the name of the event into disrepute and therefore wish to sanction the two as follows:

"Both musicians are hereby banned indefinitely from participating in the nominations, selections and performances at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards scheme.

"Also the two artistes are hereby stripped of all the awards they won at the 20th VGMA and are thus requested by the board to return all plaques in their possession to Charterhouse effective immediately," read a member of the board, Amandzeba at a press conference held by Charterhouse at the Alisa Hotel.

With January 31, 2020 as the deadline for filing of nominations, Mr. Klah mentioned in an interview with MzGee on 3FM’s ShowBuzz that the board will be reconstituted before the deadline.

“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.

“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.”
