The 19th edition of Ghana’s most prestigious award scheme, Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, has been scheduled for Saturday, April 14, 2018, at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The likes of Samini, Efya, Joe Mettle, Adina, King Promise, KiDi, Kuami Eugene, MzVee, Fancy Gadam, Kwesi Arthur, Sarkodie, Tiwa Savage from Nigeria, Nasty C from South Africa and a host of other top artistes have been billed to rock the big stage.

This year’s nomination list is a little bit tight – at least, the fact that Shatta Wale made a return to the award ceremony this year.

Also, newcomers penetrated the biggest categories than most of the mainstream performers. Top categories like “Hip-hop Song of the Year”, “Song of the Year”, “Best Rapper of the Year” and “Highlife Song of the Year” were partially dominated by the lads.
