There was uproar during the live transmission of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, when the feed was interrupted for a few minutes on TV3 – and the station endured such backlash over the action, especially when many viewers accused the station of sabotage and pettiness, considering the fact, the interruption came up when their former employee, Nana Aba Anamoah was on stage!
Following an official statement from TV3 addressing the issue, organizers of the awards, Charterhouse, has also issued their statement, apologizing for the break in the live telecast.
Charterhouse Ghana, organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), has apologized to the management of Media General, owners of TV3 and viewers of the station for the break in transmission during the live telecast of the Awards on TV3 on Saturday 14th. April.
The live transmission of the Awards was briefly interrupted during the presentation of the “Best Music Video of the Year” category. The interruption was due to a technical error which our team managed to resolve within the shortest possible time.
We had full responsibility for on-ground productions, for the Awards as we have done over the last few years.
We provided live feeds to all our broadcast partners including TV3 on the night and take full responsibility for the break in transmission and apologize to our partners, Media General, owners of TV3, to all the viewers who were impacted and to the distinguished award presenters. Any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.
We take this opportunity to thank all our partners, sponsors, patrons and viewers for their support and patronage of a very successful 19th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, especially to TV3 for being a worthy partner. We couldn’t have achieved much much without them.
