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 organizing the Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA).

Former Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations in the Mahama administration, Alhaji Baba Jamal Mohammed Ahmed, has attributed the inability of Floyd Mayweather Jr. to visit the country to insecurity . “It’s very sad Mayweather was unable to come to Ghana; he’s legend and the most successful boxer ever to walk on the face of the earth,” he told Accra based Okay FM Tuesday. “If he comes to your country, it's like being honoured with a world cup or Afcon tournament; it comes with a lot of benefit.” “It’s unfortunate, he could have come along with business tycoons and this requires a peaceful environment.” “So, it's unfortunate he didn’t come because of insecurity in this country,” the former MP for Akwatia said. “The main reason he postponed his tour to Ghana is that the country is not safe for him. What’s going on now shows clearly that our security is not too good for him ,” he added. “If President. Nana Addo will stop his foreign tours and take a critical look at our security system, Mayweather and his people wouldn't have cancelled their visit.
