Head of Communication at Charter House, George Quaye has dismissed claims that organisers of this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) were financially induced in the award of the Most Popular Song of the Year category.

His comment comes on the back of allegation by Patapaa, whose 'One corner' hit song was tipped to win the award.

Patapaa accused Charter House of taking “stupid money” to overlook him after Fancy Gadam’s 'Total Cheat' song featuring Sarkodie was adjudged the 2018 VGMA Most Popular Song of the Year over the weekend.

Reacting to Patapaa’s allegation on the Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Class91.3FM on Monday, 16 April 2018, Mr Quaye dismissed claims that organisers of the award were financially influenced.

He told show host Moro Awudu that: “It is unfortunate for Patapaa to suggest that there have been some kind of financial influence, that who influenced who? That the person influenced the public or the person influenced the academy or the person influenced the board because I don’t know who on the board anybody can influence, it’s not possible.

“So at which point did who influence who? The only way you can influence the public is to probably buy credit for people to vote for you, that is about the only way you can influence anyone but aside that, I don’t know.”

A section of Ghanaians took to social media to criticise Charter House for not awarding the Most Popular Song of the Year to Patapaa’s one corner song but Mr Quaye quizzed “did you vote”?

You guys keep saying the guys was robbed but have not provided ant evidence to that...have u educated yourself of the award process and procedures? the board compose of just a few individuals cannot determined who takes what awards but can only vote in the own right but that even has only a small percentage. the general public like you and i are the listening public and have the bigger vote cos we do this every day n night by our radio sets and programs we attend. (1) Patapaa by all standard had the whole public dancing to his music only at event but did not enjoy enough air play from radio (2) Not even did Patapaa enjoy radio play from his own region or town (3) Fancy Gadam even though did not have the viral effects like the one corner also had the events/radio play/and a huge northern fan base (3) when nominations were opened, even chiefs in the region rallied for Fancy Gadam...every citizen form the three regions from the north were advice to vote for the guy...therefore Patapaa could have won the members of the board vote but will not get the Public vote which is very large form the north and zongo communities and for your info...Fancy filled the Tamale sports stadium twice for events as well as the Bukom arena which no other artiste in Gh has done so far. hope u got it now......

Maasa , this is not a new thing in the music industry awards. You can asked people in the industry especially the MOBO Award in UK. You and your Record Label will pay and there is thought about it. Even nominees tables are priced. Don't let me mention names of top ranked sing song writers who have gone through this experience.
Name: Truth Be Told
Re: Charter House Replies Patapaa The Truth is One and it reigns worldwide. Africa is always impoverished because corrupt individuals and institution such as Charter House fills everywhere. Charter House is such a disgraceful institution and I wonder why credible bodies as Vodafon, etc. would have anything to do with them. You have robbed Patapaa of his award because of your corrupt nature and the so-called Head of Communication at Charter House, George Quaye defending this? We are talking about ‘the Most popular Song’ of the year in the nation Ghana for 2017 and you telling us a song beats ‘One Corner’? God punish you all at Charter House. This is no surprise because there’s a Nigerian there. Why did the host asked before the award was presented that “did you vote”? You knew what you have done behind the scenes. To the people of Ghana; Patapaa is the winner of this category.

Name: fabio
big ups to patopa soldiers
Name: Patapa should have won
charter house should employ better technological advance ways of collating votes from social media than relying solely on text messages as votes for the category of most popular song.I believe if you had done that Patapa would have won hands down,in my opinion Patapa won because you used an archaic mode of gathering your vote, Head of Communication at Charter House, George Quaye
