According to the PRO for Charterhouse Ghana, organisers of the annual Ghana Music Awards, George Quaye, Controversial dancehall sensation Shatta wale will not get nominations for this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
George Quaye disclosed this on Accra FM’s Entertainment Capital show with DJ Premeire. He said Shatta Wale gave directives telling organisers of the show not to nominate him for the music awards.
“He listed all his songs on Facebook and gave a stern warning asking us not to use his songs else he will go to court. If the person says we should not use his songs then what else do we have to do?
We never said anywhere that we will not nominate him but the artiste said we should not nominate him so why are you forcing us to nominate him?”
When George Quaye was quizzed if there had been any attempt to reconcile with Shatta Wale, he answered that “why must there be any attempt? Is he the only artiste in Ghana”.
He further gave a list of some musicians who have not been nominated after they warned organisers of Ghana Music Awards not to add their names to the awards.
“There are a lot of musicians in Ghana. We should not behave like we are trying to pamper or favor certain musicians. When Mzbel said sometime ago that she should not be nominated for Ghana Music Awards, why is nobody pleading for her? Is Mzbel also not a musician who is important in Ghana? Have you seen that VGMAs has ever nominated Mzbel after she made those comments?.
Black Rasta was banned but did people fight for him?. Kwaisey Pee also said sometime ago that he didn’t want nomination and when did people fight for him? Are those I have mentioned not important?
