George Quaye has turned from accuser to the one being accused in a short space of time as the can of worms he opened refuses to just get shut.
Kwesi Aboagye, entertainment host on Peace Fm, has alleged that Quaye, head of communications for organisers Charterhouse, is actually the one who requests for and accepts bribes that are brought to him.
“George is the person who has been collecting money from people”. he furiously said on his show.
He said nobody on the VGMA awards board can assure anyone of an award if they pay money due to how the scheme works. He called on him to resign for impugning the credibility of the show.
“George Quaye should resign as PRO for VGMAs. After resigning as spokesperson, he should not come 400 meters close to anything related to the music awards.
“The scheme has been suffering from perception that people have been paying bribe. Musicians upon musicians have been accusing the scheme of taking bribe to award certain people. The reason why I’m saying George should resign is that, George is the person who has been taking cash from people.” he said.
He added: “If it is not George who has been requesting cash from the musicians, then who has been doing so? Is it Nii Ayittey Hammond, Iyiola Ayoade, Theresah or who?
“Anyone who tells you he can take bribe for you to win award is deceiving you looking at how the scheme works. Judging from what I know about the awards, nobody can take money and make you win one. Nobody can influence anybody to win award at VGMAs so when I hear those things I always laugh.
“So for George to make that allegation, it means that he is the one who has been doing that. He has been telling people to give him money assuring them of winning award.”
