George Quaye

Communication Head for Charterhouse, organisers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), George Quaye has rubbished suggestions that the VGMA Board should refund ticket monies to fans who attended the show last weekend.

A #ReturnOurMoney hashtag trended on social media after Charterhouse’s decision to ban Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale from the VGMA.

The basic argument by fans who engaged in the campaign was that they paid monies through texts to make the programme a success.

But in a riposte, Mr Quaye said monies can’t be refunded.

He told Neat FM’s Akwasi Aboagye that: “Let’s not forget the winners were not solely determined by the votes by the fans. What about the Board and Academy who left their various assignments to vote on who wins? What about the artistes who didn’t win? Did their fans come out asking for their monies? He quizzed.
