Shatta Wale faces indefinite ban from VGMA
Dancehall Musician Shatta Wale is likely to face an indefinite ban by organizers of the Ghana Music Awards.
Report by Livefmghana.com says a decision has been reached and should be communicated to the artiste and the general public soon.
“They must have taken a decision by now so I am sure they will get to tell us something in hours or in the next few days, ” a source, who was once active in Ghana’s music space and has years of industry expertise said Tuesday.
The ‘Kakai’ hitmaker a couple of years ago warned the awards scheme against nominating any of his works. On the night of the show last year, he headlined a concert at La beach, supported by Sarkodie.
Even though Shatta Wale had a good year in 2015, there has been a lot of debate as to whether he should be awarded by the music body he called all sorts of derogatory names.
Shatta Wale’s disagreement with CharterHouse started when he lost out on a dancehall category award to Kaakie in 2013. He later attacked both the company and Kaakie, later recording a song in which he claimed he didn’t need any award.
