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 arch rival Shatta Wale had walked on stage with his fans.
