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). 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 monitored by MyNewsGh.com’s Syxtus Eshun.

“As I speak to you now with just about three weeks to the event, the money has still not come”, he told Austine Woode.

This year marks the 20th edition of the award scheme – and with that, many are those who feel everything that comes with the celebration – MC, set, publicity, lighting, artistes, performances, etc. should be extremely splendid compared to all past editions, but the truth is, money is all it takes to achieve that. We pray government comes in handy.
