LIVE UPDATES: 20th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards

From the new Dome constructed purposely for this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards by the organizers, Charterhouse Ghana, we bring you a comprehensive text coverage of the 20th edition of the most prestigious awards ceremony in the country.

The venue is expected to host over 5,000 attendants as musicians who have worked tirelessly within the year under review receive awards for various categories.

For the first time in the history of the scheme, gospel musicians have been listed as Lifetime Achievement Award receivers as Prof. Kofi Abraham and Rev. Mrs. Mary Ghansah take their turns as laureates. Also to be honoured is highlife legend Obuoba J.A. Adofo.

Unlike previous editions where the focus was on who wins the coveted Artiste of the Year category, this year’s being the 20th has shifted the argument to who among the ten shortlisted acts will be crowned Artiste of the Decade.

Will it be Efya, R2Bees, Sarkodie, Joe Mettle, No Tribe & Nacee, Shatta Wale, Okyeame Kwame, Stonebwoy, Samini or Becca?

One thing is certain! Whoever wins an award today will walk home with a new VGMA plaque designed to replace the current plaque for the next few years.

Brace yourself for a blissful night as the event promises to be characterized by razzmatazz, pomp and pageantry!

Performing tonight are Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Samini, Kuami Eugene, KiDi, King Promise, Kwesi Arthur, Medikal, Amakye Dede, Sidney, Diana Hamilton and Burna Boy.
