Public Relations Officer (PRO) for Charter House, organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), George Quaye, has revealed on GH Entertainment that, self acclaimed dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has filed his nomination for this year’s awards.
Speaking to Mr. Handsome on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, George Quaye, said Shatta Wale, filed his nominations just like any other artiste did. The board is going to work on all the nominations, and announce to the public the final outcome,''he added.
He indicated that, Ghanaians would know whether the controversial artiste who recently signed onto Zylofon Music, would make it onto the list of nominees.
The organisers have made some changes in the category definitions for the 2018 edition of the awards.
One of these is the change in name and voting pattern for the Most Popular Song of the Year category. That category is now known as ‘Song of the Year.’
The 100 percent voting for the category has been scrapped. The previous definition states: “the Most Popular Song of the Year is the songs adjudged 100% by the General Public as the most popular song released in the year under review, irrespective of genre. The song must have enjoyed a lot of patronage and generated the most excitement during the year.”
However, in the new definition, the Board has 30% voting power, the Academy 30% and the remainder 40% is reserved for the general public.
The 2018 VGMAs is scheduled for 14th April, 2018 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
