Two previous winners of the Ghana Music Awards ‘Artiste of the Year’ accolade Sarkodie and Okyeame Kwame have topped the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2012 nominations list.

Sarkodie, who is touted as the country’s fastest rapper grabbed 11 nominations to top the list with his ‘Rapperholic’ album, following closely, is the rap doctor Okyeame Kwame with 9 nominations with ‘The Clinic’ album. New entrant Stay Jay grabbed 7 nominations with his album ‘The Repetition’.

Sarkodie who swept 5 awards with 8 nominations at the 2010 edition of the awards with his ‘Makye’ album was nominated in the following categories ‘Artiste(s) of the Year’, ‘Hiplife/HipHop Artiste(s) of the Year’, ‘Hiplife Song of the Year’, ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’, ‘Hip Hop Song Of The Year’, ‘Best Rapper of the year’ and ‘Song Writer Of The Year’.

Rapper Okyeame Kwame, who achieved similar feat as Sarkodie in 2009 awards was the second highest nominee with the following categories ‘Artiste(s) of the Year’, ‘Hiplife/HipHop Artiste(s) of the Year’, ‘Best Collaboration Of The Year’, ‘Hiplife Song of the Year’, ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’, ‘Best Music Video Of The Year’, ‘Best Rapper of the year’, ‘Song Writer Of The Year’ and ‘Record Of The Year.

The two previous winners were both nominated in almost all the categories except the ‘Best Music Video of the Year’, which Sarkodie failed to grab a nomination. However, what differentiated the two was Sarkodie’s triple nominations in the ‘Best Collaboration’ which edged him away from Okyeame Kwame in terms of who tops the overall nominations.

    SARKODIE HAD 10 NOMINATIONS AND NOT 11 AS U CLAIM.
    I HAVE ONE MAJOR PROBLEM. WHY WAS AJEI BY R2BEES DISQUALIFIED? THE EXPLANATION THAT IT CONTAINED EXPLICIT LYRICS DOES NOT HOLD AT ALL. SMALL GIRL BY ATUMPAN IS WORSE OFF YET IT WAS NOMINATED……..
