Following Charterhouse’s decision to strip off Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy’s award from them following their fight at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, several Ghanaians have expressed misgivings about the harsh punishment meted out to the pair.
Around 10:00 am today, Charterhouse held a press conference and announced that Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been stripped off the awards they won at the just recently held ceremony.
According to the VGMA board, the decision was taken after “careful deliberations” and “extensive consultation” with stakeholders in the music industry.
Both Dancehall artists were also asked to return the awards they both won on the VGMA night. The board also announced that the Popular Song of the Year and the Artists of the Year categories have been nullified.
One popular entertainment pundit called Ashes has stated during an interview on Hitz FM’s afternoon news that Charterhouse has no right to strip their awards from them because it was their fans who voted for them.
He echoed the opinion of many Ghanaians that if the board has taken back their awards then they should return the hard earned monies Ghanaians used to vote for their artistes.
