Globally recognized Ghanaian Afro-pop singer, Noella Wiyalaa, has expressed her dissatisfaction with the criteria for the selection of nominees of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) organized by Charterhouse.
Wiyaala believes the event only rewards and promotes the works of musicians based in the capital of the country.

She explained, saying, “In my heart, I believe VGMA is trying to get all of us involved. But let’s not tickle and make and make a fool of ourselves, it’s very obvious and glaring what VGMA is all about. You have to be in Accra and your songs have to be popular in Accra. There are songs that were never popular in the North, but they made it, and the criteria keep changing. It’s their rules and regulations if you cannot follow them, you shouldn’t enter.”
Wiyaala was speaking in a recent interview on “The North” Podcast with Prince Hamdan Banang.
