Stonebwoy has been kicked off the bill for tonight’s VGMA Nominees bash by organizers Charterhouse.
The ‘Baafira’ hitmaker was billed to perform at the bash, apparently without the consent of Zylofon Media, and he was kicked off after the company warned Charterhouse using him without their consent would lead to a lawsuit.
Stonebwoy said today that he would still be performing but a press release just sent out by Charterhouse has Stonebwoy’s name off the bill with Samini inserted instead.
The nominees jam comes off tonight, moved from its initial Saturday, 24th March date.
