VGMA controversy: Charterhouse to release details this week

Charterhouse Productions, organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), has pledged to publish details of the voting pattern for all the artistes that competed in the various categories of the Awards.

Head of Communications at Charterhouse, George Quaye hopes the details, which would be made public latest this Wednesday, would clear the controversy surrounding the Song of the Year category, which was won by Fancy Gadam with his ‘Total Cheat’.

Voting for the category was split into three- VGMA Academy (30%), VGMA Board (30%) and Public (40%)- with the greater share left for the voting public to decide which song was most popular during the year.

The late sensational Afropop singer, Ebony Reigns, won the Artiste of the Year, making her the first female to win the award in the 19-year history of the VGMA and the first to win it posthumously.
