Gospel artists offer the most bribes for VGMAs – George Quaye

There’s little dispute about the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) being the most prestigious music awards scheme in Ghana and one of the best across Africa – but, it also comes with some level of accusations of bribery by some industry players – all of which have been baseless and never substantiated.

The likes of Kwaisey Pee (musician), Frimprince (Executive Producer), Dada KD (musician), DJ Oxygen (On –air-presenter) and others have all raised unverifiable cases of bribery in connection with the awards –www.entertainmentgh.com can state!

George Quaye, Head of Communications for Charterhouse Ghana, has added another intriguing twist to these bribery allegations that have dogged the scheme for years.

On the award-winning show, ‘Pundits’, which is telecast on GhOne TV, George, who is the host of the show, stated emphatically that, the most offers of bribe that come to him as an Executive of the scheme – are from gospel artists.

As monitored by www.entertainmentgh.com, while discussing the topic, ‘The Dark Side of Ghana Music: The envy, hatred and malice in the GH. Gospel Music Fraternity. A reality, perception or myth?” – George, who has so much experience as one of the producers of the event and as Communications Head for the VGMA Board, stated that a lot of gospel artists have offered him a bribe in exchange for picking awards.

He also asserted that some gospel artists also engineer ways to thwart the efforts of other gospel artists who gain nominations in the scheme- an assertion that was corroborated by accomplished music producer, Kwasi Ernest, who was a panel member on the show.

The pre-recorded edition of the ‘Pundits’ will show on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 10pm, after the AFCON Soccer Fiesta Show.
