However, Stonebwoy, one of the involving parties of the ban had something to say, a year after the ban. He disclosed that lifting the ban would be of greater benefit to the awards scheme than to them, the banned artistes.
The ‘tuffseed’ hitmaker’s reason for making such assertions was that regardless of the ban, he and Shatta Wale are still making great music. So the ban does not in any way inhibit the development of their careers.
Moreover, lifting the ban would be even more advantageous to them because they would have two of Ghana’s biggest acts on their scheme.
Stonebwoy made this known in a chat with MzGee on 3FM’s Showbiz927. He stated:
Concerns began to be raised about the ban after the organizers of the awards commenced calling for submissions for this year’s edition. The organizers, Charterhouse did so, without addressing any issues regarding the ban. Thereby, implying that the ban on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy still stands.
