VIP Touches Down In California

Two members of VIP, Prodigal and Promzy, have touched down in California ahead of a programme in its honour as part of its US tour.

Third member of the group, Lazy would be joining the group in few days as he was left in Accra as a result of personal issues, according to close sources. The group last performed in Toronto, Canada during Easter as part of its tour.

It treated music fans in Toronto to its repertoire when it put up some enthralling and energetic performances. It performed for over a 1500 mixed audience including Ghanaian fans at Rox Complex Centre in Toronto. After the show, the group rushed back to Ghana to be part of this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

However, the award winning group, the 2011 Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year, was conspicuously missing at the 2012 edition because it was not invited by event organizers, Charterhouse, for rather suspicious reasons.

NEWS-ONE can confirm that though VIP had a Toronto tour, the group had to end it and fly to Ghana two days to the awards because it had anticipated that being the 2011 Artiste of the Year, it would be invited to the 2012 edition.

The members of the group were however conspicuously missing from the special guest list dais and were not even invited as observers. They were simply snubbed by Charterhouse. Reports said Charterhouse did not invite VIP to the awards night though it invited the group for the award’s launch at Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra some months back.

Charterhouse is yet to give an official reason why the main award winners of the 2011 edition did not take part in this year’s show.

It is not certain if the group had made any public pronouncement which Charterhouse was not comfortable with and therefore blacklisted it but it is public knowledge VIP was one of the top music icons that pulled out of the awards ceremony this year at the eleventh hour.
