  1. 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

  2. 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.

    1. 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 …

      1. 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 .

  3. 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..


  5. whhhhatttttt? discovery of da year—herty borngreat—— masa i think it should av gone to trigmatic or even iwan. i waz happy wif dat award at all.

  6. I expected DADIE OPANKA to be the discovery of the year or even D. CRYME. I don’t  know who this “borngreat” is !

  7. Trigmatic You deserve to be the rapper of the year I live your punchlines you really know how to select your music beats and all and work that mic 

  8. All tho i got sum Question mark on certain awards given, in all sum deserve it.VIP crews congrats,trigmatic n Iwan my favorite artists in de industry at dis moment happy ull took sumthing home.

  9. I heard the performances were dry. “CREATIVITY” we lack it but it’s one of the most important things we need in our music industry. congrats to the winners thou.

    1. V.I.P Paa winning this artiste of the year is soo dumb and mind y’all im not hating on them but seriously they suck big time these days. The whole gma 2011 was just a mess. I didnt feel it at all. The organizers need to pay back the money to the audience.. mcteww! 

  10. what a disgraceful show.what happened to that ice prince boy from Nigeria.too much hype for that boy.he dissed all can he say that we should expect his best performance at the fabolous show.he is a crap and i blame cheaters house for that.wahappen to i wan.

  11. Why do u always nominee Florence Obinim but u don’t give her anytin? Da artist of da yr shud hav been cecilia marfo or no tribe or florence obinim

  12. well i think trigmatic deserved da discovery of da year , he has done much…well he got sumthg nd dats cul…i even tipped him 4 da artist of da year but had no nomination der….keep workin hard trig we luv u…

  13. 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.

  14. 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!
