I didn’t like this year’s gma. Poor planin’ though n where’s Sarkodie? There should be mixtape king of the year. Nothing better. Intead of Vip I will work out to take that award next time. Anyway BBRAAAaHHHH!

djchelsea says:

I think Charter House alongside MUSIGA should wake up and do more extra work. This year award festival is de worse of all. does who don’t deserve de nite were given de credit, why should this happen. just imagine VIP,taking home the Artiste of de year.. GMA is far behind. Sit up Organisers, and bring oout de very best next year.

cici says:

artiste of de yr shd ve bn kwabena kwabena or cecilia de gud thg is at least dey got sumthg..sum were certain to win,others r shocking..

Prosdel says:

Hw i wish cecilia marfo will win the artist of the year.but all the same it all gud vip kudos nd more grease to ur elbows.

Author: Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri says:

I am not surprise at all that Cecilia Marfo did not take it…I doubt how many of the gospel music lovers voted…You know the “WIASE FO” as they call them (us) will vote in numbers while the madam Theresahs will not be much bothered …

PAPA T says:

Boss you have a point, but is not on the issue of votes alone when it comes to branding i am expert in that and i knew Cecilia will not get just because his song is religious and no brand will like to go that way.Every brand looks out for something everybody can associate with, with regardless of their religion.They always do their statistics to know the number of people the artist can pull to the BRAND as a result of performance, the target audience of the artist etc .

maqk says:

this particular GMA was such a drab….lacklustre, performances, no creativity, unimaginative stage design…i mean nothin worked 4 me ds yr as compared to last yrs

B.B says:

Congrats to all winners.

ladygaga says:
