Ghana’s one time hit singer, Sony Achiba has threatened to go on one-month demonstration if Charter House doesn’t reinstate Ghana’s Dancehall King, Shatta Wale into the VGMAs.
According to him, Charter House must stop settling their personal scores with the dancehall artiste and reinstate him.
Sony Achiba speaking from his UK-based submitted that Ghana Music Awards is not personal scheme, therefore organizers must settle their differences to win confidence in the industry.
The singer added that the posture of Charter House towards Shatta Wale doesn’t demonstrate a high sense of professionalism and he will stand up for the artiste, if he even needs to go on a one-month demonstration. Achiba insisted that Charter House Production cannot continue to kick out Shatta from awards, even though he has a number of songs hitting back to back.
“This is Ghana Music Awards. I’ve never heard anywhere in the world when we have music that is trending, you can’t kick the artiste out because you have a personal problem with him,” he said.
He, therefore, impressed upon them to change their stance on the issue or should prepare for the worst from him. “Maybe I have to do one-month demonstration against them. What they are doing is very bad. I say I will go on the one-month demonstration against them,” Sony Achiba warned.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah aka Shatta Wale was banned from the VGMAs in 2014 after taking organizers to the cleaners on what he felt was wrong on the whole awards scheme. Five years down the line, Shatta Wale in an interview recently opened up that, he is prepared to go through due process in resolving matters with Charter House.
He, however, added that he had matured from some mistakes he made in the past but some defamatory comments against the organizers are still said to be featured in recently released songs like ‘Ayoo,’ ‘Taking Over,’ ‘Forgetti,’ ‘Slow Tempo,’ and ‘Hosanna.’
