Despite having sang “Me no need yo awards, charterhouse me no need yo awards” in various letters addressed to the company, the leader of Shatta Movement, Shatta Wale is back in the VGMAs.

Well, his return is not really ‘new’ as he was nominated in the 19th edition of the awards scheme but this time, he has fully ‘reconciled’ with the organizers and ENDORSED the awards scheme.

He grabbed 9 nominations this year.
