The “Kakai” hitmaker was barred from contesting in this year’s edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, at a news conference on Tuesday, where the leadership of the VGMA board, announced that since Shatta Wale was yet to apologize to them for insults he hurled at them last year, he was ineligible to contest in the awards scheme.
According to the Board, Shatta Wale can only be part of this year’s awards unless he completes the process of officially apologizing publicly for maligning the VGMA Board and the awards scheme, delete all defamatory videos and statements on social media among other things.
Charter House had dragged Shatta Wale to court for posting four videos considered defamatory on social media.
Reacting to his disqualification, Shatta Wale posted the message below on Facebook on Tuesday evening, February 23, 2016, after the 2016 VGMA board disclosed that he would not be part of this year’s nominees.
