The two topmost awards for Ghana’s prestigious music award scheme, the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, have been annulled as part of sanctions against two feuding dancehall artistes whose scuffle marred the 20th awards night last Saturday.
“The two top honours of the night, i.e. Most Popular Song of the Year and Artiste of the Year, have for the 20th Edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards been annulled,” a member of the VGMA board, Amandzeba Nat Brew announced at a news conference Thursday.
Up for the Artiste of the Year Award which was deferred together with the Most Popular Song of the Yearwere King Promise, Kuami Eugene Joe Mettle, Sarkodie and the feuding dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Consequently, the late Ebony Reigns, who won the Artiste of the Year in 2018 posthumously, will hold the prestigious title for another year,the board added.
