Veteran actor, Abeiku Sagoe has said that had EL not won Artiste of the Year at the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, he would not have known the artiste.

According to Mr Sagoe, he knew of Bisa Kdei and his songs but got to know EL after he had won the category.

“Before God and man, I hadn’t heard of EL but [knew Bisa Kdei], his ‘Mansa’ and ‘Brother Brother’ songs. I listened to EL’s songs [after the event] because I got curious asking where he came from to win,” the actor said on Hitz FM’s The Profiler.

EL, real name, Elorm Adablah, was crowned Artiste of the Year at the 17 edition of the biggest event on Ghana’s music calendar. He beat competition from Stonebwoy, Bisa Kdei, Sarkodie, VVIP and SP Kofi Sarpong.

Bisa Kdei won four awards on the night: Highlife Song of the Year, Highlife Artiste of the Year, Most Popular Song if the Year and Album of the Year.


I wasn’t angry; I was frustrated - EL

Sarkodie, Omar Sterling are beasts - EL

My comment at VGMAs not meant to dig Sarkodie - EL


A section of the public intimated that EL’s audience appeal was not huge enough to merit him Artiste of the Year while others opined that he deserved it because he worked creditably well the year under review.
