Anita Afriyie, has revealed that Chater House, organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards VGMA, have ever asked her management to pay an amount of 10,000 before they would award her.
Weeks ago, the PRO for Charter House and VGMA, George Quaye, made a rather “unprofessional statement” that gospel artistes offer the most bribes for VGMAs, starting an uproar among the gospel fraternity.
Speaking to Mustapha Nii Okai Inusah on the issue, Anita Afriyie hinted that in 2015 when she was nominated in just two categories, her management approached the organizers to question them on why she got only two nominations and they were asked to allegedly pay some amount of money – in order to win the two categories that she was nominated in.
“My management was told that other people are paying better money and investing in the awards so if we want to win or get more nominations, then we should invest more in it”
Anita Afriyie alleged.
According to the Kumasi based musician, she suspects the refusal of her management to pay the said amount (i.e bribe), was why she did not receive any award that year.
She then put it to George Quaye to name the artistes who offered/paid any bribe to him or Charter House.
GospelGh is yet to receive any response/reaction from VGMA organizers on this issue and we’ll keep readers updated if any feedback is received.
