It turns out that it’s not only Shatta Wale who has issues with the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) as rap legend, Obrafuor equally confronted the CEO of Charterhouse, Mrs Theresa Ayaode over an award he thought belonged to him.
The VGMA has often bee criticized for its baisness and favouritism on numerous occasions. And this year, it reached a boiling point when Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy clashed after the latter declared as the winner of the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year.
According to the ace radio personality and Chief Executive Officer of Slip Entertainment, CEO of Charterhouse, Theresa Ayoade tried stopping the Ghana Music Awards because Obrafuor once charged at them and accused them of robbing him of a certain award he felt he should have won.
Mark said the situation forced The CEO of Charterhouse to cancel the annual music award ceremony but rescinded her decision when a vote was cast by the board to continue.
“She (Theresa Ayoade) was confronted by Obrafour when he said he was told he had won an award. She wanted to stop. We were in golden tulip. And we had to vote whether to continue or not. The vote for the continuation was more than the against so we had to continue.“
Mark Okraku also revealed that, Mrs Ayoade almost canceled the awards show on a second time when the show was bombarded with complaints by sponsors because of how artistes kept dragging the organizer’s name into the mud.
