Shatta Wale Set For Massive VGMA comeback; Opens Up On Conditions


Renowned Dancehall artist Shatta Wale has revealed that he is open to reconciling with the organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) if they make an offer for him to be involved in the awards ceremony. Despite this, he has made it clear that he doesn’t hold any particular affection for the VGMA.

During a recent appearance on Prince Tsegah’s “U Say Wetin” show on Hit FM, Shatta Wale explained that he would need the VGMA board to adopt a more agreeable approach to bring him back on board. “I don’t have any enemies at VGMA,” he said. “We move on from what happened in the past, but they need to find a more appropriate way to invite me to the awards ceremony. VGMA is like an ex-girlfriend. Whenever they want to reconcile, I’m ready. Since they are the ones who organize the event, they should approach me with respect.”

In 2019, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were banned from the VGMA after a confrontation between the two artists. Although Stonebwoy’s ban was lifted after two years, Shatta Wale has yet to return to the awards ceremony. Last year, Stonebwoy made a comeback, and two of his popular songs, “I Gad” and “Greedy Men,” were nominated for the Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year category. The category was also contested by KiDi (“Touch It”), Samini (“Picture”), Larusso (“New Gen”), and Epixode (“Odeshie”).

VGMA The VGMA is one of the most prominent music events in Ghana, with the country’s top musicians participating in the event each year. It serves as a platform to honour and recognize talented musicians for their contributions to the music industry. Shatta Wale has previously won several VGMA awards, including the Artiste of the Year award.

Although Shatta Wale’s absence from the VGMA has been a topic of discussion among music enthusiasts, he has made it clear that he is open to returning to the event. However, he requires the VGMA organizers to make him an offer that is acceptable to him.
