Reactions from a cross section of Ghanaian musicians on the recently-released nominees list for the Ghana Music Awards are fairly mixed.
While some look rather stunned and dazed as to why there weren’t captured in some categories, others like controversial duo FOKN BOIS have decided to simply call it “Ghana Amusing Award”.
The reactions were expected, and not too different from what the post event controversy has always been.
This year’s scheme is scheduled for April 13.

Asem Yes I got 7nominations, am I excited about it ? Not really cus when u deserve diamonds and they give u Gold u ask why the diamond no come Okay so let’s go straight to the point and ask VGMA why I wasn’t nominated for Artist of the Year and hip/hiplife Artist of the year Guys let not focus on who shldn’t be there, the question is why I wasn’t there 4 Artist Of the Year, from where I stand I met the criteria U see its a matter of principle, its not Iike it’s my dream to be Artist of the year, if nominated its possible I won’t even win But in life if u don’t stand for something, u fall for everything. When it comes to me the Gyae ma nenka Gh rule does not apply
