Public Relations Officer of Charterhouse, Robert Klah has stated reasons why Charterhouse celebrated Highlife legend ‘Castro’ at the VGMA 2021.

Castro has gone missing for the past seven years with a lady named Janet Bandu when they joined Ghanaian football star Asamoah Gyan and friends on holidays at Ada in Ghana.

The two were legally declared dead by the State on Tuesday, July 6, 2021, but Castro’s parents have strongly dissented to the declaration as they believe in their son’s return.

At this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) held on Saturday, June 26, 2021, an amazing performance by singer Kurl Songz and Sarkodie was put together to honour the music legend.

However, some critics have slammed the organizers for paying tribute to Castro.

Entertainment Journalist, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo and artiste manager Bulldog are among others have argued that the tribute was misplaced.

“Usually, if you will do a tribute for someone, it’s either the person is dead or has reached a legendary status. The legendary status was done on Friday

. . . We all know that, what they did, it was done because we are about to declare him dead in his 7th year this year. Otherwise, if you say you’re honoring him, before Castro, there’s thousands and for me, I think the idea was good but it was misplaced. It was highly misplaced,” he asserted.

But the Charterhouse PRO, Robert Klah says Arnold’s assertions and criticisms that they celebrated Castro because he will be declared dead this year is unfounded.

According to him, Castro wasn’t celebrated on that particular night because he is dead.

“The situation with Castro is different. I can’t say he’s dead. The performance was to honour him,” he argued on UTV’s ‘United Showbiz’. When asked why they honored Castro, Robert answered it was done for his “absence”.
