Ghana Music Awards Organizers Decide to Lift Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy Ban

The board of the Ghana Music Awards has “decided” to lift its ban on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.

In a new interview, Robert Klah, Head of Public Events and Public Relations Officer of Charterhouse stated that the issue came up during its first meeting for the upcoming edition of the awards.

“It was in principle decided that the ban should be lifted,” remarked Klah to Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.

He also added that an official announcement will be made after organisers meet with the artistes and their management teams.

“There is a reason why this altercation happened and you want to be sure that they don’t resurface. You want to have that kind of conversation to understand and agree on how things should move.”

Background

Organizers of the scheme, CharterHouse banned the two artistes indefinitely following the brawl, and asked them to return the plaques they won for awards on the night.
