Public Relations Officer for Charterhouse Productions Limited, George Quaye has stated that the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) board will decide whether or not to approve Shatta Wale’s inclusion at this year’s event.

The artiste, some time ago cautioned organisers not to nominate him for the awards after hauled him to court on charges on defamation.

Shatta had descended heavily on Charterhouse in a series of videos released online. He insulted the organisation and accused them of being corrupt and further warned them to stop denying musicians from other regions of Ghana the needed recognition.

“I don’t have any problem but this is a company that is taking Shatta Wale to court. You can’t take me to court and give me food to eat; you might poison me,” he had said.

Shatta Wale however made a U-turn late 2015 after a split with his manager, Nana Lawrence Asiama Hanson (Bulldog).

On the impressions of the artiste’s decision, Public Relations Officer of Charterhouse, George Quaye said although it is not within his purview to decide, Shatta’s reason for boycotting the event remains unresolved. He added that the artiste’s approach to issues regarding the music awards was unfair and questioned if a comeback would be “prudent”.

“…It’s a question that when it gets to the board level, the board would have to decide. It wasn’t the VGMA that said they didn’t want him to be a part of it; he gave a stern warning that he didn’t want his work to be touched… I believe in fairness and equity at all time. At one point, we might feel that you can pick on this brand when we feel it is right and at another time, you feel you can pick it up and be part of it. It is not fair,” he said.

“If I have an issue with you and take it out there and bastardise you, would it be prudent for you to come back…? Would it be fair to everybody else?” he added.

George Quaye further indicated that one cannot right the wrongs.

“But it is not my decision. Shatta Wale is a brother, I like him, I love his songs, he has done very well the year under review… but what else? You cannot right the wrongs that have been done in the past. I would wish that there would be a way. But one of the things that he did say when he was asked why he didn’t want to be a part of it was that we are in court with him. The last time I checked, we are still in court,” he noted.
