Abstract: Let $ (A,G,\alpha )$ be a $ {C^{\ast}}$-dynamical system and let $ G$ be a discrete group. When $ G$ is a cental shift in $ (A,G,\alpha )$, we show that $ A$ is $ G$-simple (resp. $ G$-prime) if and only if the $ {C^{\ast}}$-crossed product $ A \times {}_\alpha G$ is simple (resp. prime).
