The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) over the years after its inception has seen countless criticisms on the criteria the scheme uses in selecting its winners.
The criticism mostly comes from the public, entertainment pundits and musicians themselves whiles they claim some awards are bought by some individuals in the music industry.
Charterhouse who are organisers of the event has however rubbished these allegations on numerous times insisting that, the selection of its winners is done based on both the voting system and the decision by the board.
Gospel musician Great Ampong known in real life as Isaiah Kwadwo Apmong has admonished musicians who pay to receive awards to put a stop to it because it doesn’t help in anyway.
The singer and songwriter also described the award given at the VGMA as a wooden plaque saying it does not provide food for the artiste hence there is no need to pay for it.
“There is no need to pay money for a wooden plaque. Ours are in the house, it doesn’t feed us so there is no need to pay money for it.” He told Kingdom FM in an interview monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
