The initial artiste list was released during the week, the list included industry heavyweights Sarkodie and Samini and relative newcomer Kwesi Arthur. Sarkodie who scored the most nominations for the gala no less than nine is expected to take the stage probably as the main event. The surprise though came when no Zylofon Media artiste made it on the list. That is to say the likes of Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Becca et al all missed out. The issue of conflict being due to Zylofon Media’s displeasure at how Charter House supposedly bypassed them to negotiate with Stonebwoy for him to perform at the recently held Nominees Jam in Cape Coast a couple of weeks back.
Public Relations Officer of Charter House, George Quaye made the revelation on TV3’s New Day on Friday. “He started from High Grade family, grew and matured, crossed over to establish Bhimnation, and he is performing too. Stonebwoy is performing tomorrow,” George Quaye said.

There were speculations on social media as to why the dancehall artiste was not listed among performers released earlier by organizers of the awards. Some had suggested that management of Stonebwoy, Zylofon Media was demanding huge money to have the artiste perform.
George Quaye however noted that the news about Stonebwoy’s performance was meant to be a surprise to fans out there. Meanwhile, the Charter House PRO stated that all is set for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Saturday and all performing artistes are ready to thrill patrons at the Accra International Conference Center. The 19th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards will be live on TV3 and all its social media platforms. Taking this at prima facie, it is safe to say the two corporate entities that is Zylofon Media and Charter House have patched up and are now in a state of positive professional cooperation.
