Organisers of Ghana’s biggest Musician awards show, Charterhouse Ghana have revealed that they are still waiting for government to provide funds to enable them organize this year’s awards scheme.
This was revealed by George Quaye, PRO for Charterhouse, during an interview on Kumasi based Abusua FM. He said “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”.
“As I speak to you now with just about three weeks to the event, the money has still not come”, he told Austine Woode.
Reports circulating in the media circle has it that Charterhouse is broke and that is the reason they couldn’t embark on massive publicity as it used to in previous years.
George admitted that “indeed money is a major factor this year’s awards celebration has received little publicity. When you even consider our nominees jam in Kumasi, you could see that we spent a lot. However, we believe in the Nana Addo’s government that they will deliver their promise”, he reiterated.
