VGMA 2016: 'Mr Eazi was disqualified because he's not Ghanaian'
PRO for Charterhouse, the organizers of the annual prestigious Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has disclosed that VGMAs board thought it wise not to include Mr. Eazi for this year’s VGMAs because he is not a Ghanaian by blood only that he has been staying in Ghana for some time now.
According to him, VGMAs is for Ghanaians, and the only category that is for non-Ghanaians is the African Artiste of the year category but he didn’t also qualify for that category.
He disclosed, “I’ve heard lots of talk about VGMAs not nominating Mr. Eazi in the various categories. But they should know that the reason why we deem it fit not to make him part and parcel of the award scheme is that he’s not a Ghanaian.”
He continued, “Mr. Eazi is a Nigerian, and the only category he can compete for is the African Artiste of the Year category and with that one he didn’t qualify because his influence on the African map is nothing to talk home about as compared to the other artistes in that category.”
