Ghanaian Pop singer, Jon Germain has taken a swipe at the VGMA board for not nominating the ‘Kaikai’ hit maker, Shatta wale.

 Organizers of the VGMA organized a press conference on February, 23 and in their statement cited certain derogatory remarks made by Shatta Wale in the past for which they decided to reject his entries. Jon Germain who did not take kindly to the decision by the VGMA board took a jab at them for what he described as unacceptable and disappointing.

 “My first problem with the VGMAs is Shatta Wale not being in there. He put out hit songs throughout last year and needs to be in there. If you have a problem with him, take him to the court but you cannot reject his entries,” Jon decried. Speaking on Ghana’s number one entertainment and lifestyle show, Celebrity Fan Zone last Saturday, the Pop singer expressed his disappointment over the whole Shatta Wale- VGMA controversy and wondered when the VGMA board will dutifully discharge their obligations without any controversies andmistakes. 

Initially reluctant to comment on the VGMA nominations when host, AkosuaHanson posed the question;Jon subsequently spoke up questioning how come certain artists who released songs several years ago find themselves being nominated for the VGMAs. 

He also expressed his surprise over the rejection of his colleague musician’s song, ‘Brother Brother’ because of a ‘swear’ word.  “If you won’t nominate a song because of a single swear word, then that is not fair,” he stated. Attempts to get the VGMA board to comment on this issue proved futile.
