Shatta Wale seems unfazed about his legal issue with organizers of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards as he has promised to storm the event venue by all means.

The dancehall artiste was sued by Charter House over a series of what they said are defamatory videos he released on social media site, Facebook.

He was further banned from participating in their award scheme but Shatta Wale claims he won’t miss this year’s edition.

“My team is deliberating on picking the nomination forms,” he said adding that, “I will attend this year’s ceremony by hook or crook. I will attend even if I am not invited.” Shatta Wale told Zylofon FM.

Charterhouse Productions Limited, organizers of the annual Ghana Music Awards have opened nominations for this year’s edition of the awards scheme.
