The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards board closed nominations entry for the 17th edition of its awards ceremony yesterday, January 30 and is set to announce the full list of nominees by the end of this month (February, 2016).

From sound engineers to song writers, singers to rappers, producers to directors, the Ghanaian music industry has recorded yet another uncountable musical works in the 2015/2016 music year.

Tons of masterpieces have been submitted by artistes for consideration by the VGMA board and it’s up to them to decide. But there are some artistes whose works are clear and deserve recognition by the board.
