True to the earlier speculations, Charterhouse has officially lifted the ban on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy after they got banned from the awards scheme in 2019.
In a press release dated February 12, 2021, they noted that the decision to lift the ban was taken at the inaugural meeting of the 22nd VGMA Board on the 28th of January 2021.
“The Board agreed to admit them back to the scheme, hoping that such altercations that bring the scheme into disrepute, do not occur in future events.
This makes them eligible to participate in this and subsequent editions of the VGMA, if they so desire. By extension, their collaborative works with other artistes are eligible for participation in the VGMA.”, part of the statement reads.
