Majority of the winners of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) 2012 did not turn up for the prize presentations on Tuesday at MUSIGA Office in Accra.
The organisers of the annual awards, Charter House were ready to present each winner with his or her prize, yet only few of the winners were present. This development forced the organisers to give an ample time to wait for the rest to show up for the presentation to look beautiful.
After several hours, the short event kick started with the artistes who were available. The absence of a number artistes did not ruin the presentation but it did take some shine out of the whole event.
The VGMAs in its 13th edition was held on Saturday April 13 at the Dome of the Accra International Conference. Prior to that, the Industry award was held to award the Industry Categories.
Each award winner irrespective of the number of awards won received GHC 3.000 whiles the ‘Artiste of the Year’ picked GHC 10.000.
On March 12, Peace FM Entertainment Review host Kwasi Aboagye celebrated his 40th birthday.
Yesterday, he was given a surprise party live on his show. The surprise party was planned by his producer Eugene Osafo-Nkansah and some top officials of the company.
In a middle of an interview with Mark Okraku Mantey, the surprise guests invaded the studio with a song, drinks and a birthday cake. The interview ended abruptly.
Kwasi was then forced out of the studio and affairs were taken over by Mickey Darling.
As surprised as he was, he cried to show his appreciation to the ‘unwelcome’ guest in his studio who had interrupted his show. A great number of the guest offered their support and advised him that life begins at 40. There were also solidarity messages.
