Outspoken Ghanaian actress, Vicky Zugah has disclosed that, she is not happy with Chaterthouse, organizers of Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMAs).
According to the actress, she is extremely disappointed at Charterhouse for recognizing and awarding the late sensational dancehall artiste, Ebony who is dead and gone.
Speaking to SVTV Africa, Vicky admitted that the late Ebony was a good musician without any doubts but rewarding her after her death is needless.
To her, organizers of award scheme must learn to appreciate the living rather than appreciating the dead, since the living need more encouragement to excel in life.
When asked if Ebony deserved Artiste of the Year Award, Vicky said, “If she was alive I would have agreed, I don't think we should celebrate the dead more than the living."
"She is dead and gone, She was very good and talented but once she is dead, she is dead," the actress insisted.

Vicky Zugah in her conversation stressed that the prestige music award should have gone to a living musician to encourage and urge others do well.
"The main purpose of awards is to encourage people to do better, so I don't see the need of awarding the dead," she said.
