Chief Executive Officer of Charterhouse, Mrs. Theresa Ayoade, Ghana has disclosed the Government of Ghana has never supported the Ghana Music Awards.
Mrs. Theresa Ayoade, CEO of Charterhouse Ghana on Saturday 9thMarch disclosed on joy FM that the scheme has never received a pesewa from governments past and present.
Theresa was part of a panel comprising Saddik Abdullai Abu, CEO of 3Music Awards, Ken Addy of Joy FM and Richard Kwame Agyeman Berko, a writer, poet and entertainment critique who spoke on showbiz A to Z, hosted by George Quaye.“Everything has been from the support of some corporate institutions and our own internally generated funds all through the years. No government, past or present has ever given us any kind of support financially,” Theresa stated.
The shock emanates from the following fact; Official documents, press releases and letters cited by this portal with some available on other public platforms indicate that the scheme is organized “Under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture…”Year after year, successive Ministers and other offices connected to the Ministry of Tourism have mounted the Ghana Music Awards stages at various levels to either make a speech or present an award.The annual brochure produced by Charterhouse for the event has consistently featured images and speeches from Ministers of the Tourism and Arts Ministry with photographs.
