Organisers of Ghana’s music awards scheme, Charter House, says they are still waiting for government’s intervention in terms of money to be able to give the best in what they do to the industry and its lovers.
“Last year our Honourable Catherine Afeku noted that government was going to support Charter House in organising the Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA).
After the launch, the Ghana Development Agency also repeated it was going to back us to make the event spectacular. Till date we have waited for them for a response. We even wanted to know whether they have received our letter for sponsorship or not”. Mr George Quaye, Public Relation Officer (PRO) for Charter House revealed in an interview with Kumasi-based radio Abusua FM.
“As I speak to you now with just about three weeks to the event, the money has still not come”, he said.
There are reports that Charter House is broke which informed its inability to embark on massive publicity as it used to in previous years.
Mr Quaye in his response admitted the claim, saying “indeed money is a major factor this year’s awards celebration has received little publicity. When you even consider our nominees jam in Kumasi, you could see that we spent a lot. However, we believe in the Nana Addo’s government that they will deliver their promise,” he emphasised.
