The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Charterhouse, Theresa Ayoade, has disclosed that the 2020 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) is scheduled to take place in August.
The annual awards event which was slated for May had to be rescheduled to August due to the coronavirus restrictions on social gathering of not more than 100 people.
She indicated that the decision follows President Akufo-Addo’s move to ease some of the restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to her, the team was re-strategising to organize a great show as done for the previous editions.
“The challenges of putting together logistics and not being sure of expected revenue is a real issue. In normal times, we will have been able to sell up to 4,000 tickets in VGMA-related events, but it is not so now,” Mrs Ayoade told Accra-based Joy FM.
She further stated that as organisers, Charterhouse was looking forward to using the digital space and new guidelines for events put forth by the Tourism Ministry.
She added that instead of a virtual event like the just-ended 3Music Awards, the 2020 VGMAs will have a live audience, with adherence to social-distancing and health protocols.
