To those who were wondering whether the late Ebony will be eligible for consideration in the forthcoming Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), the answer is a BIG yes!
The organizers of the annual award, Charterhouse Productions have said that the Dancehall artiste still qualifies for the prestigious scheme.
Ebony did remarkably well under the year in review with several hits to her credit. She was widely tipped to sweep most of the awards including the topmost ward; Artiste of the Year.
The CEO of Charterhouse, Theresa Ayoade even in death, Ebony still qualifies for nominations to all the categories of the awards, including Artiste of the Year.
She was speaking with Adom News Reporter Shine Acquah at the launch of 28 categories to open nominations for the 19th VGMAs.
The CEO explained that the awards is not about the personality but about the work of the artiste, and there is evidence to show Ebony has worked hard over the period under consideration.
We all know she has worked very hard the whole of last year and this is a very bad news to hit the industry – work must still proceed and her work is in the year in contention and her team have submitted everything in that regard therefore the public can vote for her when nominations are opened.
Theresa Ayoade said if Ebony’s work is adjudged winner of any award, the award will be presented as such in spite of her demise.
She urged the public to cast their votes for their favorite artiste including Ebony, adding that her demise does not make any different at all.
