VGMA: Charter House Pardons Stonebwoy and Shata Wale…as its yet to decide to bring them back on Show

The Chief Executive Officer of Charter House, Theresa Ayoade says her outfit is yet to take any decision to bring Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale back into the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).

It will be recalled that the two dancehall artistes nearly exchanged blows at the 2019 VGMA, a situation which led to the event management company stripping them of any award(s) they had clinched on the night.

The two were further handed indefinite bans with regard to any Charter House organised event.

Since the move, the two artists appear to have reconciled their differences leading to many wondering when Charter House would lift the indefinite suspension placed on them.

But speaking on JoyNews, Theresa Ayoade said the decision to bring the two back into the Charter House fold is yet to be made.

“We haven’t had an internal conversation around that yet.When we are ready to make full announcement on the VGMAs, we will come up with a full statement on everything. We haven’t met, we haven’t really come out with any clear directions in terms of that whether anything has changed from the last position,” she said.

Moreover, she announced that this year’s VGMA will come off in August as restrictions on social gathering have been eased by the President.

She adds also that her outfit will weigh the options and look into utilising the digital space as well as new guidelines for events put out by the Toursim Ministry.

She said unlike the 3Music Awards, the 2020 VGMA will have a live audience but with the needed social distancing and health protocols being observed by all.

“The challenges of putting together logistics and not being sure of expected revenue is a real issue. In normal times, we will have been able to sell up to 4,000 tickets in VGMA-related events, but it is not so now.”

She added, “It may not be exactly as it used to be in the past but obviously, with what is happening now, it’s going to be a downscale version.”
