Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy will be among the list of performers for the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), we can report despite being excluded from the list initially.
Charterhouse, organisers of the event, released the list of performers for the show on Wednesday.
The list had Sarkodie, Samini, Kwesi Arthur, Joe Mettle, King Promise, Kidi and Fancy Gadam as some of the artistes billed to perform.
Others were Efya, Adina, MzVee, Kuami Eugene, Praye and Akosua Agyepong with Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage and South Africa’s Nasty C completing the list as the African artistes for the night.
Curiously, Dancehall artistes Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were missing from the list.
As two of Ghana’s best music performers currently, their absence from the list left some questions on the lips of Ghanaians.
Later, reports suggested the two were not included because Zylofon Media, the record label managing them, demanded too much money for their performance.
But speaking in an interview on TV3’s New Day Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Charterhouse, George Quaye revealed that Stonebwoy will perform at the event.
It is not yet known what might have caused the change of mind but it is believed that Charterhouse and Zylofon have reached an agreement.
The 2018 VGMAs comes off at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC) on Saturday, April 14, 2018.
This year’s awards ceremony is the 19th edition and it is under the theme “Our Music Beyond Borders.”
Undoubtedly, the biggest night in Ghana’s music industry, it will honour players in the industry for their works over the 2017/2018 music year.
