Hiplife artiste, Screw Face in a Facebook has disclosed that organisers of Ghana Music Awards years ago asked him to pay an amount to win an award when he was nominated for the discovery of the year artiste category.
According to him, the award was given to King Ayisoba when he failed to pay the amount requested.
The musician made this revelation in a post to support Shatta Wale after rumours that Charterhouse, organisers of the annual awards have planned to ban the “Kakai” hitmaker from the awards ceremony.
To him, Charterhouse should have a change of mind if indeed they have decided to officially prohibit Shatta Wale from Ghana Music Awards.
