VGMA 2018: Teephlow beats Sarkodie, Samini, others to win Record of the Year

Ghanaian Rapper ‘Teehplow’ known in real life as Lukeman Baidoo has won his first ever award at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards held Saturday, April 14, at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).

The rapper who is signed onto Spyderlee Entertainment and known for his fierce rap skills has struggled for years to pick up an award at the annual award ceremony after placing second at the maiden edition of the 'Next Big Thing in GH Hip-hop'.

He beat Zylofon Music artiste Kumi Guitar, Samini and SarkCess Music record label founder, Sarkodie, to win the “Record of the Year” award with his song, “State of the Art”

His first attempt was in 2016 when he was listed for the “Best Music Video of the Year” category with “The Warning” music video.

Showing his gratitude at the award ceremony, Teephlow thanked his contenders and thanked his management and label owner, businessman and politician Papa Kwesi Nduom.

Teephlow, who recently released his hit song christened: ’Preach,’ stirred a lot of controversy*which scores of fans believe it’s a diss song to attack his colleague*, Strongman.

These two (Strongman and Teephlow) were at the final at the next Big Thing in Ghana.

The night in Accra International Conference Centre was one that would forever be remembered by the individuals who attended the event. People came from different homes to witness the event in full support and they weren’t disappointed as Sarkodie put up a charged performance. The fans roared at each song performed.

The Concert headlined by Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in collaboration with Tv3 started around 7pm with around 20,000 music lovers well prepared.
