It is my personal believe that Charterhouse and the VGMA@20 Board have failed big time. Yes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy misconducted themselves during the 2019 VGMAs but they could have handled the situation better than how they handled it.
What did they do? They banned Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy from participating in future VGMA events; couldn’t they have shown a bit more maturity by bringing the two artistes together to make peace?
Meanwhile it took the efforts of TV Personality Nana Aba Anamoah and businessman and philanthropist Kofi Amoa-Abban to finally bring peace between the feuding artistes.
Well, I believe Charterhouse could have initiated this ShattaStone peace process and use them for a peace tour. This could have been the perfect solution.
However, they allowed some people who hate Shatta Wale advise them and they missed it big time.
Can you imagine Charterhouse having a press conference tomorrow and having Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy in attendance? And then during the Press conference, these 2 artistes apologize to the world and announce the “Peace Concert Tour”? Can you imagine the level of damage control this could have done?
But again they missed it, they allowed hatred blind them and they refused to think ‘normal’.
They listened to people who want to see one person down, I know they were sad Stonebowy was involved.
This is an advice for us all; we should respond to situations regardless of the level of its seriousness rather than reacting to situations.
Yesterday was exactly one week (Thursday) since Charterhouse and the VGMA Board banned Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy. But miraculously on Thursday, they have united.
