Why was Stonebwoy chosen over Shatta Wale for the VGMAs this year

Stonebwoy, a Ghanaian dancehall artiste, has rejoined the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) scheme, according to Charterhouse’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Robert Klah.

Stonebwoy voluntarily expressed interest in returning to the VGMA scheme, according to him.

“To be a part of the scheme, you have to be able to show interest, and once you show interest, we work with you,” he stated. “Stonebwoy showed interest, and we worked together.”

On Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz show, he explained why Shatta Wale has not joined the scheme, saying, “Stonebwoy showed interest, Shatta Wale did not.”

“You can show interest in a variety of ways, including filing or consenting, but you must show interest,” Mr Klah added.

When asked how Stonebwoy got involved with the scheme, he revealed that it was through his own consent that the scheme was able to work with him again.

“I am not going to get into the specifics of what happened,” he said, “but I think the most important thing is that he established that there was a clear interest.”

“The interest is translated in the consent given, which is why we were able to put him on the scheme because we could not put him on the scheme without his permission,” he continued.

The two artists, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy, were previously banned indefinitely after being caught in a brawl during an award ceremony in 2019.

The fracas, according to the Board Chairman, disrupted the ceremony and put patrons’ safety in jeopardy. As a result, the two were barred from competing in the event in 2020.

Following sober reflections from the two dancehall music stars on their actions, the VGMA Board reached an agreement to reinstate them to the scheme, in the hopes that such squabbles would not recur in future editions.

As a result, the ban was lifted on January 28, 2021.

Despite this, Shatta Wale declined to participate in the 2022 edition of the ceremony after being contacted by representatives of the award scheme.
