Organisers of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), Charterhouse, have opened nominations for the 2020 edition awards ceremony.
The event house recently made the announcement on social media to pave way for artistes to be nominated for various categories for an award.
They have stated that the fate of dancehall giants, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale, would be determined after the board is reconstituted.
According to Charterhouse’s Head of Public Events, Robert Klah, the board will decide whether or not the ban placed on the two artistes would be lifted, as it opens nominations for the 21st edition of the awards.
Speaking in an interview on 3FM, Mr Klah said: “As it stands, the resolve of the board still holds. When the board reconstitutes, they can decide whether the ban should be lifted or not.
The “reconstitution of the board is happening this month. Submissions are going to end on 31st January 2020, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that work on nomination ends because when the board is working and they feel some particular music has done well, they can find out if submissions have been made and if submissions have not been made, sometimes, they reach out to the persons involved just to find out if they are willing to tender. These are some of the things that happen in the background.”
Charterhouse, last year, banned and stripped the two of all their awards after they distracted the ceremony.
Stonebwoy, who was on stage to receive an award, pulled a gun after he realised that his archrival Shatta Wale had walked on stage with his fans.
Thomas Partey in talks with Atletico Madrid over contract extension
Thomas Partey has revealed he is in talks with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid over a new contract.
The Ghana international has in previous transfer windows been linked with a move to England, with Arsenal and Manchester City monitoring his situation in Madrid.
But speaking in an interview, the Ghana Star said his agent is trying to fix things with the Wonder Metropolitano outfit.
He told AS: “My agent is trying to fix things with them. You never know each other’s future. I want to enjoy football and you never know where each person can end up.
“I want to take advantage of all the minutes I have and you never know where a person or a player can end up. You can’t say you can be here or there. You always have to enjoy and, wherever you are, you have to do your best.”
Asked about the Premier League rumours, Partey added: “It’s always a positive thing, because when you listen to that it makes you feel like you’re doing things right and motivates you to do better.
“I give one hundred percent where I am, I will continue doing it because I am like that.”
