VGMA Lifts Ban On Shattawale And Stonebwoy
The Board of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) says it has lifted the ban it imposed on Ghanaian Artists, Shattawale and Stonebwoy.
According to the board, the decision was taken at the inaugural meeting of the 22nd VGMA Board on January 28, 2021.
In a statement sighted by ThinkNews Online, it said "The indefinite ban was imposed in 2019 as a result of a brawl caused by the two Artists during the Awards Ceremony of the 20th Anniversary edition of the VGMA, which disrupted the ceremony and threatened the safety of patrons. The two were thus excluded from participating in the 21st VGMA held in 2020"
It added that the Board agreed to admit them back to the scheme, hoping that such altercations that brought the scheme into disrepute do not occur in future events.
