Chief Executive Officer of Charterhouse, organisers of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, has assured the general public of adequate and stringent security measures at this year’s edition of the ceremony.
“Last year, we used the hand-held scanners. We did not use the full-body scanners. But now all the rest are going to be rolled out. We’re going to have bag scanners, body scanners, we will scan you till you are tired,” Theresah Ayoade told the press at Alisa Hotel, Thursday.
Her comment was a direct reaction to how the event organizing firm is prepared to ensure the safety of patrons and guests at this year’s ceremony.
Last year, the event which was in its 20th year was disrupted by a scuffle that ensued between dancehall giants Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
While Stonebwoy was up the VGMA stage taking his award, Shatta Wale, his rival on the music scene, was seen approaching the stage with a host of others presumed to be his fans.
Stonebwoy who felt threatened, pulled out a handgun handed him on stage by one of his entourage, a scene that sparked a scuffle between the two artistes and their followers.
The awards event was temporarily halted and the topmost two awards for the event, Most Popular Song of the Year and Artiste of the Year, were deferred due to the melee.
