They revealed Jay Bahd’s nomination has been revoked.
“One of the submissions made, which has generated high public interest, is Jay Bahd’s inclusion in the Best New Artiste category. After deliberations, the Board agrees that Jay Bahd is not new to the scheme, because of his shared nomination on Yaw Tog’s ‘Sore’ for Collaboration of the Year in 2021. This means, he’s not eligible as a nominee for the Best New Artiste category of the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. The error has been corrected, and Jay Bahd and his team have been informed accordingly. The inconvenience is deeply regretted,” part of the statement read.
The 2023 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is scheduled to be held on May 6 at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre.
