Perhaps the biggest shock of this past Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was the exclusion of Kofi Kinaata, who arguably should have been artist of the year, from the biggest category of ‘Artist of the Year’.
It was an almost criminal omission, considering the year Kinaata had just put together and the fact that he had two mega hits competing for awards.
Nii Ayi Tagoe, a member of the VGMA Board, has revealed that the huge clamour for Medikal to win awards at the just ended VGMA’s did not translate into votes for the AMG Business star.
Speaking on Starr Fm’s Morning Zoo Saturday, Nii Ayi Tagoe said in the voting for the Best New Artiste of the Year, which Fancy Gadam won over Medikal, the latter received only 13 votes.
CEO of the Excellence in Broadcasting Network, Bola Ray, has heaped tremendous praise on VGMA virgin of the year Medikal.
The young rapper was nominated for seven awards at the just ended VGMA’s, but somehow managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory when he went home with zero awards.
The raw votes tallies for 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music awards have been released by Charterhouse, the organisation behind the annual awards scheme.
The voting totals, in percentages, show the breakdown of the voting as carried out by the public.

The Accra International Conference Centre hosts the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Saturday night (April 8) – and the venue is being set up for the biggest night in Gh music.
Organisers Charterhouse are apparently pulling all the stops to present a better show than some of the sh*tshows we’ve been forced to witness throughout the years.
The management of Gospel Musician Piesie Esther, Trust Production, has come out to deny categorically reports that the singer has threatened to quit music if she does not win awards during this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
The statement categorically denies any such comment coming from the singer, and expresses bewilderment at what could have inspired the reportage.
Dancehall act Samini has added his voice to growing calls of discontent over the exclusion of Kofi Kinaata from the artiste of the year category at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Despite a stellar year and spawning two mega hits, including arguably the biggest hit in the country right now – Kofi Kinaata failed to make it to the most prestigious category in the upcoming awards.
The nominations for the 2017 VGMA’s has some sparked discussions and controversy all over the entertainment landscape.
In one of the most lightweight nominees list ever, it seems this year’s awards would not be the best on record, with even the Artiste of the Year category containing no clear cut winner.
The nominees list for the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards were released last week and there was one very notable absentee song – ‘Onaapo’.
Arguably the biggest political song in Ghanaian history, the Nacee composed song was so popular even its perceived opponents (the NPP) were dancing to it.
CharterHouse, organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, has stripped communications director George Quaye of all duties in relations to being a spokesperson for the VGMA board.
At a press conference held in the capital Friday, Quaye was relieved of his duties as a spokesperson for the VGMA board, which chooses nominees and winners of the awards.
Ghanaian gospel group Alabaster Box have added fuel to the fire of the VGMA bribery scandal started by Charterhouse’s own communication head, George Quaye.
Alabaster Box, in a post on Facebook, have claimed that George once demanded a kickback from them when they carried out a job for Charterhouse, implying that he might be the once asking for the bribes all along and later smearing gospel artists.
