Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has been barred from contesting in this year’s edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Board members of the award scheme during a press conference which took place earlier today at the world trade centre stated that; Dancehall artist has submitted an apology letter prior to the event, which gives them a few days to review it and more so react or reply to the camp of the dancehall artist.
They added, they are looking at reviewing it very soon so response corresponding to the issue will soon be released but for now, due to the busy schedule of the board members prior to preparation ahead of this year’s Vodafone Ghana movie Awards, it will be difficult to come to a decision before the announcement of the nominees this Friday.
So its confirmed, shatta wale is not receiving any nominations this year.
Charter House had dragged Shatta Wale to court for posting four videos considered defamatory on social media.
Although the Kakai hitmaker had earlier said he did not want to be nominated for the awards this year, he submitted his songs when entries were opened on January 1, 2016.
