The Head of Communications for CharterHouse Ghana, the organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, George Quaye has revealed that indeed there have been attempts to influence the scheme through bribe.
Speaking on GHOne TV’s THE PUNDITS talk show on which he hosts every Tuesday, the witty presenter said the biggest offer among these attempts to compromise the awards has come from gospel artistes.
“I’ve been offered bribe by gospel artistes,” George Quaye revealed.
He went on: “If I could or if anybody on the VGMA board could alter results, it could have happened. Trust me some of the bribes have been very lucrative. But it’s not possible.”
“No disrespect to gospel artistes but the biggest bribe that I’ve been offered in the history of the scheme (VGMA) comes from the artistes.”
Quaye and his pundits made up of former MUSIGHA President Diana Hopson, Kwasi Ernest, an artiste manager and entertainment journalist Arnold Asamoah Baidoo were discussing “the dark side of Ghana gospel fraternity.”
