The 23-year-old singer emerged as the Artiste of The Year at the 21st VGMA which just ended at the Accra International Conference Center. Kuami beat competition from Sarkodie, Kofi Kinaata, Medikal and Diana Hamilton.

The Lynx Entertainment signed act becomes the next artiste to win the title after the late Ebony Reigns as the category was cancelled last year due to the chaos that erupted when Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy clashed on stage at the ceremony.
