Ghanaian reggae-dancehall recording artiste, Stonebwoy has finally responded to the lifting of the ban placed on himself and Shatta Wale by the VGMA board.
A press statement from the VGMA Board released on Friday, February 12, 2021, stated that the board after a thorough review has decided to lift off the ban place on the two acts Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) board imposed the ban on the two big Ghanaian dancehall recording acts (Stonebwoy and Shatta) in 2019 to restrict them from participating in the award scheme until further notice following a brawl between the two acts at the 20th edition which involved the brandishing of a gun.
Dancehall king Wale has already reacted to the issue a very long time ago where he also told them his mind.
A few hours ago today, Wednesday, 17th February 2021, the Bhimnation President, Stonebwoy born Livingstone Etse Satekla also has reacted to the lifting of the ban in a Twitter post.
According to the multiple award-winning act, the VGMA board did not do the right thing. And he thinks the right thing for them to do was to, first of all, contact him and his team to seek permissions before coming out announcing that they have lifted the band.
Read his tweet below.
Dear VGMA Board & Scheme organisers,I hear the purpose of the VGMA is to celebrate and project Ghanaian musicians and music.If that is so, it takes nothing from you to meet with us the artistes/ our reps b4 reaching decisions that affect us and communicating them to the public.
The right to be heard is a principle that applies in every noble society. Even the all seeing God, who had already seen and knew all that Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden, still made sure he heard them before he took action against them. #IfTheySoDesire really???
