Gospel musician Rev. Bernard Amankwah says charterhouse is not a serious organisation for it’s late response to the bribery comments made by its Public Relations Officer, George Quaye.
In a conversation with Franky5, a host of This Is Gospel on Hitz FM, he praised charterhouse for releasing a Press statement disassociating themselves from the allegation made by George Quaye.
He was however quick to criticize the Ghana Music Awards(GMAs) organisers for failing to immediately respond to the allegation. “Everybody had a perception that something was inside(bribery) but for somebody (George Quaye) who was a PR to come out and say this, it was a huge thing that I can think if they were a serious organisation, the next day they should have come out ” he said.

Rev. Amankwah also believes Mr Quaye comment was a publicity stunt gone bad. “I believe it was a PR gimmick that they use to hype the awards but this time it didn’t work” he added.
He concluded that since Mr Quaye no longer speaks for the VGMA board, he should come out with the names of those involved since his credibility is at stake.
Mr Quaye had alleged that some gospel musicians bribe charterhouse for award. He later retracted the comment and subsequently rendered an apology for the remarks.
Charterhouse organised a press conference to disassociate itself from the comment made by Mr George Quaye though he has personally apologised for his comment.
Rev. Bernard Amankwah was part of those who called for gospel artistes to boycott this year’s award.
