Charterhouse introduces 1-week provisional window to correct 2023 VGMA nomination anomalies surrounding artistes like Ewura Abena, DJ Azonto, Stone, Sark, others
Following various concerns raised about the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (2023 VGMA), Charterhouse, has announced a major introduction to its scheme ahead of this year’s event.
Unlike many awards, organizers of the VGMA have introduced a one-week window which allows the general public to contest information sent out to the organizers for consideration in this year’s awards.
In a conversation with Sika Osei, the Head of public events and communications at Charterhouse announced the new significant move saying;
“One of the first things we’re immediately introducing is the one-week provisional period.”
He continued saying: “After this announcement goes out, we have one week window where we’re opening up for the public. So what this means is, if there’s anybody contesting any information, if there’s any information that has been submitted to the VGMA is inaccurate, we are open to receiving information from the public to be able to address that because individuals make submissions and sometimes you get incorrect information. After this period, everything as announced stays as they are.”
Speaking to NY DJ on RYSENSHYNE on Y102.5FM, Robert Klah further expatiated the one-week provisional window and announced the channels through which one could challenge a nomination or file a dispute.
“The one-week provisional window is for correction and provision. By correction, I mean the removal or inclusion or any type of information that might not be accurate as a result of the mechanisms in soliciting for information from different sources,” he said.
He also revealed individuals could submit their concerns via their official emails or contact available on the award scheme’s website.
This comes as a brief relief to several down sides found with this year’s nominations including the fact that ace Gospel songstress Ewura Abena got nominated in the Best New Artiste category and DJ Azonto got ignored in the Vodafone Most Popular Song category.
Also, several of Lynx Entertainment signees nominated in Unsung leaving out other equally qualified unsung acts, Stonebwoy nominated in Reggae/Dancehall artiste of the Year after releasing solely Afrobeat/Afropop songs within the year in review, Shatta Wale not being part of the entire awards scheme again and Sarkodie not nominated in the Best Rap Performance category, among several others!
